  • Wednesday, July 22nd Deadline!  


    The Marion County School Board approved our “Responsibly Reopening” plan for the next school year with options for parents and families, as many of you requested.

    Now, you may choose between a traditional, face-to-face classroom setting with safety and health protocols in place ***OR*** an online option with curriculum led by teachers from your child’s school.

    To learn more about these choices, visit our home page – – and click the link in the message box that automatically pops up.

    We encourage you to carefully consider which option is best for each child in your household and complete the “I Am Ready to Choose” process for each child.

    You have through Wednesday, July 15th, to make your choice.

    Our reopening plan is fluid and subject to updates.  It also directs the steps we’re taking to provide a safe school environment and online option to meet the needs of our students and families.
