What is the Weekly COVID-19 Case Update?
The Marshalltown Community School District believes it is crucial to keep our community informed regarding COVID-19 cases, while also maintaining the privacy of individual students and employees. A report on the number of COVID-19 cases within the District will be shared weekly on Fridays beginning on Sept. 18, 2020; each report will share the total number of new, confirmed cases among both students and staff members District-wide since the time of the previous report.
Important notes about MCSD’s weekly COVID-19 case reports
The weekly COVID-19 reports will focus exclusively on new, confirmed cases of COVID-19 since the time of the previous report.
The weekly reports will not include information regarding any individual person, position/title, classroom/activity, age group, grade level, or school building. This is in order to maintain the privacy of our students and employees.
Information about student/staff absences due to unconfirmed cases or symptoms, other illnesses, or any other circumstances will not be included in these weekly reports.
Marshalltown Schools has developed a process of communicating COVID-19 and contact tracing information to students, their families, and MCSD employees who may be directly impacted if a case is confirmed. Read more about that process here.
Reports from previous weeks will be listed in this section.
