Marion Community Schools was informed Monday, Nov. 16, that two students who were last at Allen Elementary School on Wednesday, Nov. 12, have been diagnosed as COVID-19 positive.  

At the elementary level, with the difficulty of enforcing consistent social distancing, Marion Community Schools utilizes cohorting (keeping groups of students together and avoiding cross contact as much as possible). Because of this, our plans have included quarantining entire classrooms in the event of a positive COVID diagnosis.
