Dear Marshall MAFA Parent:
As we embark on the return to face-to-face instruction, I wanted to provide a safety update as our school opens its doors for the first day of in-person learning on Monday, October 19.
Our school is committed to providing quality education for every student we serve — whether our families choose to have instruction delivered virtually or in person. All campus-based employees and students must follow infection and high-touch area protocols. We are following all district protocols for health screenings, personal protective equipment, and physical distancing measures.
Should we receive a report of a presumed or confirmed COVID-19 case or exposure for any student or staff member on our campus, you will be notified immediately. Out of an abundance of caution, we would then transition to virtual learning for all students while a thorough cleaning and disinfection of the campus is conducted, and exposed individuals are identified.
The district is following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines regarding the cleaning, sanitation, and disinfection of district facilities. Once cleaning is complete, you will receive notification of the scheduled return to in-person operations.
For a complete outline of safety policies and procedures, please refer to HISD’s Communicable Disease Plan.
Dr. Queinnise Miller

It's Hispanic Heritage Month at Marshall!
October is College & Career Readiness Month!
The Office of Strategy & Innovation is excited to announce HISD’s third annual College & Career Readiness Month (CCR Month) in October.
CCR Month is a fun and creative way to engage students and introduce them to a variety of college and career options. This year’s theme is “Take Control: Explore. Design. Launch Your Future!” Each week of the month will highlight a specific CCR theme, including:
- Week 1: IGNITE – Paying for college and selecting the right program of study.
- Week 2: LAUNCH – Choosing the right college that will develop future skills.
- Week 3: SOAR – An insider’s guide to college and learning to soar with the military.
- Week 4: NAVIGATE – The more you know will help navigate the real world.
Throughout the month, HISD will be sharing information on a variety of college and career programs and activities for all grades. All HISD high school campuses will have a chance to compete for prizes (scholarships, college swag, college tours) by showcasing their college and career knowledge on social media.
October is the month we celebrate Principals! We appreciate you Dr. Miller!!
October is National Principals Month and the Houston Independent School District is encouraging all students, parents, staff, and community members to honor and thank district principals.
The American Federation of School Administrators (AFSA), the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) have partnered to celebrate these education leaders.
HISD students, parents, staff, and community members can download the district’s custom e-cards at HoustonISD.org/PrincipalsMonth to post them on social media and show their appreciation.

It's time to register to vote!
Dear Marshall parents-
I am sending along a beautiful spoken word poem by artist MarlonLizama about the importance of voting. Sharing with you all as I would love to see all the families at Clemente registered before October 5th deadline. Our VOTES matter.
Why do I vote?
Because I have a voice and they’re going to hear me
For my family
And my students who don’t have a voice
For my mothers sacrifice,
for workers, And for flags from foreign lands
I vote from my home,
my dreams and to get ahead
Why do I vote?
For my faith and
to stop in justices to my brothers and sisters
I vote because I have a voice and
they have to hear me
