Marion County Schools (MCS) has worked closely with the Marion County Health Department (MCHD) to provide COVID vaccine opportunities for your child. MCS will not be offering clinics. If you wish for your student, age 5 and over, to receive the COVID vaccine the MCHD has opened a link for you to schedule a time that is best for you. You are not obligated to use this clinic option, as there are many local physicians and pharmacies offering the vaccine as well. You may register your child using the following link: https://wvumedicine.org/info/marion-vaccine

The MC BOE recently accepted a resolution to recognize MCS as a Purple Heart District. Many WVs are veterans of the Unites States armed forces and have families with children attending school. During times when these families relocate to meet duty requirements or experience the absence of a loved one while on deployment, MCS has an opportunity to meet the unique needs of these children. The Purple Star Award is designed to recognize schools that create a military-friendly environment and make a special commitment to supporting the resilience of military connected children. For more information, contact L.D. Skarzinski, Administrative Assistant of C&I, at lskarzin@k12.wv.us or visit https://wvde.us/commonground/.
