Dear parents and community members,

Welcome back students! We are looking forward to beginning school on September 7th. This year all students will be returning to in-person learning at Marathon.  We have lifted as many restrictions as possible, making the 21-22 school year a more “normal” year.  Marathon CSD will be following CDC and Department of Health guidelines, with safety as our top priority. The full reopening plan can be found on our website at  Highlights of the plan are as follows:

  • All students and staff will wear a mask, regardless of vaccination status, when inside our school buildings or on our school buses.  Masks will not be required outside of buildings, though social distancing will be encouraged.
  • Social distancing will be 3 feet, allowing for more collaborative work.
  • We will continue to ask parents to take students' temperatures before coming to school and making sure students who are exhibiting COVID symptoms stay home. We will not be asking parents or staff to complete a daily COVID screen based on the commitment to following these practices last year.
  • Students or staff who come to school with COVID symptoms will be sent home and will need a doctor's note or a negative COVID test and no symptoms to return. Vaccinated individuals do not need a doctor's note or a COVID test to return, but must be symptom free with no fever for 24 hours.
  • Buses will have 2 students to a seat with masks required.  Students will be seated with family members when possible.  All will be given an assigned seat.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Students, teachers and parents around the country are talking about how schools should address diversity, equity and inclusion. We know that all school districts are not the same, thus how we address diversity, equity and inclusion in Marathon will need to be specific to us. 

To begin with, the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion is the responsibility of every member of the school community. This is not the work of a single committee, a diversity officer or the building principal. It is all of our responsibility to make sure that every individual feels safe at school. 

To do that, our first step will be to gain feedback from all stakeholders.  During the month of September, we will be asking people to 1) Identify areas within our district where individuals feel respected, valued, and included. 2) Identify areas within our district where individuals do not feel respected, valued, and included. 3) Collect ideas to help build a safer school environment.  An in-person community feedback session will take place on September 21st in the Appleby cafeteria. We are seeking your feedback on how we can make Marathon a safer and more inclusive school. Please be aware that masks will be required to attend. After gaining this important feedback, it is our responsibility to review Marathon’s educational processes to determine what improvements can be made.

I wish everyone a wonderful year full of learning and fun.
