Virtual Day set for Friday, March 5 for staff vaccinations

The Marion School District will pivot to a virtual learning day on Friday, March 5, to accommodate a second Covid-19 vaccination clinic for faculty and staff.

The clinic will allow staff members who received their first shot on February 5 to receive their second dose. This is part of our continuing efforts to provide the safest possible learning environment for our students.

Because of the challenges associated with the large number of doses of the vaccine, securing the appropriate personnel to administer the vaccine, and other logistical issues connected with a vaccination event of this scale, the Marion School District again opted to pivot to virtual learning for the day. 

Meals for Friday will be sent home with students on Thursday afternoon, along with the regular weekend meal distribution. Regular school schedules will resume on Monday, March 8.

This process is a vital step in protecting the health and safety of both our staff and students. As always, we thank you for your patience and support as we continue to navigate this ongoing health crisis and this unprecedented school year.
