As the Marysville/Tulalip community comes together to respond to the COVID-19 virus threat and physical restrictions to help limit the spread of the virus, we are encouraged by the resilience of our residents and many examples of community partnerships to help those most in need. 

Marysville School District

These unprecedented times provide opportunities for our district staff to connect with our students, families, community, and staff in different ways.

During this time, we want to make certain that our families and community members are able to connect with us. We have a variety of ways to receive information and learn about the school district and our schools.

Website — Go to www.msd25.org. Stay updated on current news and events, access departments, school sites, and important notices. 

Social Media — Like and follow to receive updates.

MSD App — Download and sign up to receive notifications for the district and individual schools using the App. Instructions are available on the district website at bit.ly/MSD25App

Let’s Talk ­­— share a question, comment, suggestion, concern, or compliment for the district departments or schools. Let’s Talk is accessible on the district website at www.msd25.org. The App can also be accessed by searching the App Store for Let’s Talk, use ID: MS2045.

Robocalls and Text Messages — The school district and schools use robocalls and text messages to reach out to families and staff to share information, send reminders of upcoming events, and notify them in the event of an emergency. 

Key Communicators — If you are a community member and do not have children enrolled in school but would like to receive information from our school district, please call (360) 965-0000 to sign up with your name, phone number, and email to get connected.

We look forward to connecting with our families and the community! We love our students and cannot wait for the time for all of us to be together again. 

City of Marysville

While city buildings are now closed to the public, we continue to operate all essential services including public safety, clean drinking water, garbage pickup, sewer services, road maintenance and more. City playgrounds, Cedarcrest Golf Course and the Skate Park are closed. City parks and trails remain open to enjoy as long as you remember to avoid crowds and stay at least 6 feet away from others to maintain physical distancing. 

We are working with the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce to help support local businesses at this time. You can find a list of restaurants offering takeout and delivery meals at https://www.marysvillewa.gov/1047/Supporting-Local-Businesses and also by joining the chamber’s “Marysville Tulalip Take-out & Delivery Options” Facebook page. That city web page also has information about special grocery shopping hours for seniors and other vulnerable populations along with information about other local service and retail businesses. 

Finally, while we are all asked to practice physical distancing at this time, it’s so important to nurture social connections. Check-in on your neighbors by phone or from a safe distance. Offer assistance with errands or grocery shopping to older folks and people with special needs. Keep in touch with family and friends, and take care of yourself too. This remarkable community has come through tough times in the past and we will do so again. 

This monthly column is jointly prepared by the City of Marysville, Marysville School District and Tulalip Tribes about topics of interest to the Marysville Tulalip community.
