Marathon Schools Offer “Test To Stay” Option


In Marathon, non-vaccinated students and staff can “test to stay” beginning next Monday, February 28.

If someone is asymptomatic and exposed to a person who is positive, the school nurse will test them before allowing them to go to class.

Superintendent Rebecva Stone told parents: This is for non-vaccinated students and adults or people 12 and older who have not been fully boosted who are ASYMPTOMATIC and have been exposed to someone who is positive. These individuals will report to the nurse’s office prior to reporting to class. They will complete a rapid test with the school nurse. If the test is negative, they go to class and continue their day as usual. If they are positive, they go home. If negative, they can do all school functions, with the exception of competing against other school districts. This program is not for individuals who are asymptomatic and fully vaccinated or symptomatic individuals.

Written parent permission is required to participate in this program for anyone under 18 years of age.

Permission slips were sent home with students on Friday, February 18.
