2021-22 school year off to a successful start

Bobcat students returned to classes Tuesday morning, greeted by teachers and other school staff excited to reunite with their pupils after summer break.

The 2021-22 school year is off to a great start, with students attending classes in-person at all school buildings and virtually through the new Marshalltown Virtual Academy (MVA).

Regardless of learning mode, the students enjoyed fun, educational activities to help them settle in for the upcoming school year and get to know their fellow classmates.

As with the 2020-21 school year, ensuring a safe, enriching learning environment is the top priority of the Marshalltown CSD. 

Several important safety guidelines remain in place as the coronavirus pandemic continues, including highly recommended (not required) face coverings, social distancing where and when possible, frequent hand washing, easy-access hand sanitizer stations, enhanced cleaning throughout District facilities, school schedules which minimize student and staff crossover, and much more.
