In light of COVID-19, the IHSAA has modified the physical exam requirement for participation in school athletics. All athletic physicals completed and submitted for the 2019-20 school year will continue to be valid for the 2020-21 school year. 

Specific details of school athletics are still being discussed and planned for, in line with guidance from local, state, and national health officials. Once athletics resume, we know there will be some students who don't have an athletic physical on file, even with the extension allowed this year by IHSAA.

Every year, Marion High School hosts the 3.5 Banquet, which honors students who have ended their high school years with a GPA of 3.5 or above.

In addition, each student honoree is able to invite adults who have encouraged them along the way, such as a special teacher.
