MARSHFIELD – Three more Marshfield elementary classrooms will go to a virtual learning model, as several high school football players and multiple middle school students go into quarantine, after the Marshfield School District reported three more students and two staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
In an email sent to parents on Sept. 25, the district said it has “learned of three new student COVID-19 cases; a student at Madison Elementary School, a student at Marshfield Middle School, and a student at Marshfield High School. Also, there are two additional cases amongst staff at Lincoln and Washington Elementary Schools.”
The high hchool student did not have close contact with other students during the regular school day, according to the district. However, several students from the football team will quarantine after having close contact with the individual at practice Sept. 17-18. Marshfield’s football season is on hold for at least two weeks.
The Marshfield School District now has six elementary school classrooms under the virtual learning model.
