I hope everyone had a restful spring break! We are back in full swing here at Marshall and we need your help. STAAR testing is fast approaching and daily student attendance is imperative. Your children must be at school every day in order to benefit from the lessons and activities our teachers have planned. We want all of our students to be successful on STAAR and that can only be achieved if they are in attendance daily.
Thank you in advance.

The transportation maps show which students will be designated as walkers, riders due to hazardous traffic conditions and riders due to the two-mile limit.
