Packets will be available for students in preschool through grade 8. (Packets will also be available digitally from the links below and on our Technology Resources page, but for those who prefer hard copies, we are making them available.)
Marion Community Schools social workers are collecting information and resources to help you during this difficult time! We are all working together to stay connected while we are apart.

Due to continued uncertainty and concern surrounding coronavirus / COVID-19, Marion Community Schools has decided to cancel our annual Kindness Rally that had been set for April 3.
