MARION SCHOOLS CLOSE THURSDAY

 

 MARION COUNTY – Out of an abundance of caution, and based on the latest weather predictions, school for tomorrow, November 12, is cancelled in Marion County.

 

This is due to predicted high winds that could make it unsafe for buses to be on the roads.  At this time, because no shelters are expected to open, Marion schools plan to reopen Friday on normal schedules. 

 

After-school activities today should not be impacted but families can contact their child’s school as any changes there will be made at the school level.

 

Regarding the storm, the Citizens Information Hotline at the Marion County Emergency Operations Center is active until midnight tonight for questions from the public.  The number to call is 352.369.7500.
