Marion County Schools has confirmed a change for meal service as of today. On Friday, May 1st the Marion County Office of Child Nutrition was made aware of an instate meal opportunity to assist during the COVID-19 pandemic. The proof of concept was implemented on May 5th in one other county with great success. Starting on Wednesday, May 20th, Marion County Schools will be delivering student meals purchased from Multitude Foods, a West Virginia company. We appreciate the input and support from our community and hope volunteers continue to help with the delivery in the future.
We are also excited to announce a summer partnership with Marion County Parks and Recreation (MCPARC), to provide for the distribution of the meals as we transition to the summer program. Starting on Wednesday, June 3rd through Wednesday, August 12th, MCPARC will distribute the meals for Marion County Schools. Thank you to Mr. Tony Michalski and the MCPARC employees for assisting us with this partnership. An update will come on this later naming distribution sites and times for pick-up for the summer meal service.
The plans for celebrating our seniors are coming along. We have had a nice response so far, to the donations for senior signs. We have reached 75% of our goal. We just need a little more help. Thank you to those who have already donated. The graduation videos are nearing completion and should be available by our original graduation date of May 22.
We are encouraging students to continue with remote learning provided by their teachers. We hope they are also reading for fun, enjoying learning games, helping with chores, getting some fresh air and taking every opportunity to learn from all of their experiences.
Schools are making the arrangements to complete the normal tasks for ending the school year. Students and parents are or will be receiving messaging from their schools, to alert them to their part in necessary tasks for ending the school year.
Be well, stay safe.
Marion County Schools will post relevant news, updates, and guidance for parents, students, teachers, and staff on this page to keep you informed.
