Marion High School has moved up its plans for an in-person graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 to July 12, 2020.

MHS administrators have been working with student officers of the Class of 2020 to make this decision. While the school had initially planned to have an in-person graduation ceremony during Homecoming Week in September 2020, many students who are heading to college have concerns that they will not be able to leave their college campus at that time. Many colleges are putting restrictions in place to help limit the spread of COVID-19.
