The Marysville School District In-District Transfer Process opens on February 1, 2024. Go to https://www.msd25.org/page/student-transfer-information for details. While it is always recommended to enroll your child in your resident area (neighborhood/boundary) school, we do understand that, at times, circumstances exist that create the need to enroll in a school outside of your resident area school. Following this process is a request for a change in your student's school placement. Transfers are primarily based on space availability. The request is not a guarantee of placement.

Statement from the Marysville School District regarding Halloween School districts in our state and around the country have been moving away from allowing Halloween celebrations. The Marysville School District followed suit. The District believes that school should be academically and socially enriching, and feedback from the community and staff affirmed this. The decision was reversed to allow students and staff to experience a day of fun and joy in school. The decision to allow school-appropriate costumes in no way diminishes the school district's commitment to inclusion. We ask students and families to adhere to the following the wearing of costumes during school hours: Halloween Costume Guidelines Marysville School District reminds students, staff, and families to keep it fun, not risky or offensive. Halloween is just around the corner, and we want all of our staff and students to have the opportunity to enjoy it safely and respectfully. The following guidelines help to avoid costumes that may make people feel scared, exploited, insulted, or humiliated. Sometimes, even with good intent or without fully realizing it, people wear costumes that may be offensive to others. To that end, we have established guidelines for costumes that may be brought or worn to school: - Costumes should not be offensive or discriminatory - this includes costumes that may be based on or portray a particular race, color, sex, gender, disability, or national origin. - Face paint or wigs should not be worn to portray different races or skin colors. - Costumes should not include weapons, simulated weapons, or props that could be dangerous to others. - Masks, face coverings, or make-up that results in staff being unable to identify students should not be worn. - Costumes should be school-appropriate and conform to dress code standards. - Anything that would be placed in the mouth is not allowed, such as pacifiers or false teeth. - Costumes that depict violence, gore, alcohol, or drugs are not appropriate. Everyone is responsible for creating a safe and welcoming environment for all. Thank you for adhering to these guidelines. If you have questions about whether a particular costume is appropriate for school, please contact your child’s school. Thank you, and have fun and stay safe if you plan to celebrate!
