The graduation ceremony will be live-streamed and available for viewing on the district’s FaceBook page.

A mandatory graduation practice will be held on Friday, July 17, at 10:00 a.m.in the arena. Seniors must attend the graduation practice to participate in the graduation ceremony. No practice, No ceremony, No exceptions! No one other than the graduate will be allowed at the practice.

Graduates are not required to have guests, however, each graduate will be allowed to have a maximum of two guests. The guests must be at least 21 years of age and are asked to dress in business, casual attire. The two guests will escort the graduate as he/she moves along in a line, towards the stage as names are announced. The entire junior high facility will be utilized to allow for social distancing.

Attention Patriot Graduates of 2020,
Last evening our MSD School Board approved the following:

On Monday, July 6, the Marion School District will submit a request for approval from the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education for a proposed 2020 Marion Patriot Graduation Ceremony.
The proposed date for the event is Saturday, July 18, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. in the Marion School District Arena. We hope to have confirmation of approval for the event within a few days.
This is intended to be a brief diploma ceremony- not a full-scale traditional graduation. However, we will be releasing the first-ever MSD Virtual Ceremony video at noon on the same date that will contain many of the elements of a traditional ceremony.
To adhere to the guidelines for social distancing and face coverings as prescribed by the Arkansas Department of Health and DESE, the graduation will be closed to the general public.
However, each graduate will be allowed to have two escorts to accompany him/her during the ceremony.
Graduates and escorts will line up on the lower and upper hallways of the Marion Junior High School, maintaining a distance of 6 feet between each graduate and their escorts.
Escorts will stand in the hallways with the graduates and proceed with the graduates into the arena for recognition. Graduates will walk across the stage to receive their diplomas, while their escorts will walk along the base of the stage. After the recognition, the graduates and their escorts will exit the arena.
All graduates and escorts will be required to wear masks for the duration of the ceremony. Escorts are NOT required, but up to two are allowed per graduate. Escorts must be at least 21 years of age and submitted to Principal Paul Johnston for prior approval. Escorts should arrive in dress casual attire and be comfortable standing and/or walking for as much as an hour.
Lifetouch Photography will be on hand to provide photographs of the graduates. Graduates will be allowed to remove their masks briefly for the Lifetouch photograph. No other photographs will be allowed in the Arena. The ceremony will be live-streamed for the benefit of family and friends. Details for viewing will be released shortly.
More details to come. Please remember this proposed event is still subject to approval from the Division of Elementary and Secondary Education.
