Marysville Memo

October 2022

Student Illness & Masking

A reminder for staff, students, and visitors in our schools to continue to self-screen every day before attending school using the COVID-19 school and childcare screening tool. Staff and students should stay home when sick. In addition, for a total of 10-days after the start of any illness symptom or positive Rapid Antigen Test (RAT), students and staff are expected to wear a well-fitted mask in all public settings (including schools and childcare, unless under two years old) and avoid non-essential activities where mask removal is necessary. Public Health continues to encourage people to mask in indoor, congregate settings like schools. We continue to work very closely with KFL&A Public Health as it relates to health and safety, and absences due to illness. KFL&A Public Health has created a helpful resource for school and childcare screening for families to use. If COVID-19 protocols change, they will be communicated directly with families and updated on Limestone’s COVID-19 Protocol Update webpage.

Terry Fox Run Update

September 23rd was definitely a cool morning for a run or walk, but as in true Terry fashion, Marysville students persevered and continued to make our school so very proud.

Our little school has managed to surpass our fundraising goal of $500 and has reached the $835 mark! Well done, MPS!

Congratulations to the recipients of this year's Terry Fox t-shirt draw; Ethan and Autumn. A bonus draw this year allowed us to present an additional Terry t-shirt to Raelynn! Wear your shirts with pride!

Relections on National Day for Truth and Reconciliation


I think Truth and Reconciliation means to tell the truth and respect Indigenous Peoples. - Sé


Truth and Reconciliation means alot. I know we can't go back in time to help so we need to help now. We need to fix the future cause we were mean to Indigenous people we put in residential schools. - Kiana


Truth and Reconciliation is to make things right and to remember those kids who passed away at Residential schools. At the service I noticed no one was smiling or joking around. It was all very serious. - Eli
