Dear Marshfield Families and Community,
Hopefully, everyone has been enjoying a well-deserved summer vacation. I would like to be the first to welcome you all to the 2021-2022 school year. I know many of you have questions about what the upcoming school year will look like, but let me first introduce myself. If you are a junior or senior, you might know me from when I was the Dean of Students or as the Assistant Principal/Middle School Athletic Director from 2015-2019 here at Marshfield. During the last two years, I have been the principal at Madison Elementary on the west side of town. I am excited to be back at Marshfield High School and continue to build positive relationships with so many of the community members, families, and students. I pride myself on being approachable and accessible, so please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns (as I know there are many).
As far as the school year goes, we have a normal calendar and school day prepared for all our students. If you do not plan on attending in-person school, we will continue to have an online option available for all our students. If you did not forecast for online-only, please reach out to the school at your earliest convenience. For all in-person students, we have some slight alterations to our schedule, but we are planning on a normal modified block schedule similar to what we had prior to COVID. I know many have questions about the mask debate and we will continue to follow these guidelines as the summer progresses. Right now, I am not comfortable saying what we will or won’t do. I also know many have questions about how we will support students' recovery from any academic losses over the past year. Summer school was very successful and the administrative team will be working on providing support opportunities during the upcoming school year.
The first day of school, September 7, will be here before you know it. I will do my best to communicate with you all about what to expect on that day and every day thereafter during the upcoming school year. Continue to enjoy the beautiful weather and I look forward to seeing our campus full of students in a little over a month.
