Since the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, Marinette School District has been proactively planning with an intent to return all students to a full-time, in-person learning model, when deemed safe to do so. Grades 4K-5 have been attending in-person, five days per week since the beginning of the school year, and grades 6-12 returned to an in-person learning model, four days per week from a hybrid learning model on March 1st.
“With the transition of grades 6-12 to an in-person learning model, we have seen success with limiting the transmission of the COVID-19 virus within our school setting through the use of our mitigating practices,” says Superintendent, Corry Lambie.
Based upon the district’s continued review of internal and local COVID-19 data, Marinette School District has made the determination that it can safely transition students in grades 6-12 from a four day, in-person learning model, to a five day, in-person learning model, the week beginning April 12, 2021, which is the first day of 4th term.
Superintendent Lambie shared that students and staff have done an excellent job continuing to follow and honor the safety expectations and mitigating practices, allowing the district to continue to maintain its safe learning environments. “We want to share our gratitude for the patience, understanding and support our students, families and staff have demonstrated throughout the school year.”
District administration will continue to monitor internal and local data pertaining to COVID-19, as well as collaborating with local, county and medical experts.
The district shared its updated reconnecting plans with the Marinette School District families on March 30, 2021, and will continue to communicate any updates with parents and families.
