Editor’s Note 12/07/21: We apologize for the delay in processing and publishing this request on our site. Sunshine Request is a project built and run by a small team at PRC Applications. We run the site in addition to our primary business. While we will always do our best to process and follow up on requests as quickly as possible, there may be occasional delays, depending on our availability in a given week or month.

Thank you for using www.sunshinerequest.com!


Please Note: Currently, we have 9 types of request statuses, indicated by various colorful “face icons” on the View all Requests page, as well as in the overall “Fulfilled Status” listed at the top of each request.

The overall “Fulfilled Status” of a request may not always match the individual statuses of a request’s various activities / updates listed below the request. For example:

If the same request was made to both Marietta City Schools and the Health Department within one request, this is treated as two requests, and it’s possible that one entity’s request statuses could get marked as “Completed,” while the Overall Status of the request is still marked as “Government Processing Request.”

This just means that Sunshine Request is waiting on the rest of the results before we can mark the request as fully “Completed” overall.

If at any time you would like to track the status of your request, please search for your request via the “Search box” or list of requests on this page. Any updates we receive will be posted on our site as soon as we are able.

    To Whom It May Concern:

     

    For the school period of 9/1/2020 to 10/31/2021 there were 119 positive Covid-19 cases reported for Marietta City Schools.

     

    Marietta City Schools kept track of any and/or all of the quarantining that was needed based on exposure in the classroom. We have no record of that information. Please contact them for that information.

     

    It is my understanding that the website coronavirus.ohio.gov dashboard may have additional information.

     

    Thank you,

    Becky Jones, RN

    Public Health Nurse
