SCHOOL ORIENTATIONS FOR

NEW YEAR SET FOR THIS WEEK

 

MARION COUNTY – Every school year offers new information about everything school-related.  This information is often shared at school orientations, giving students and parents opportunities to become accustomed to their new or returning school before the school year starts.

 

These special “meet and greets” also offer advance notice of class schedules, bell times, teacher assignments, bus routes and stop times, extra-curricular activities, and other school-related events.

 

Here is a listing of orientation dates and times alphabetically by school and school level.  New students, especially kindergarten-aged children, should register now for school to avoid long lines on Monday, August 12, the first day of class for students in Marion County Public Schools.
