News Blog Category - News Late in the afternoon on Monday, May 20, 2019, Marion High School administrators received information alleging a student was in possession of a firearm. Staff and administrators took action immediately, in cooperation with local law enforcement, and the student was arrested without incident. 

Safety of students and staff is top priority at MCS. We would like to take this opportunity to urge anyone who notices anything suspicious while at one of our schools or at a school event to contact the nearest MCS employee immediately. In addition, we ask anyone who knows anything that threatens the safety of our students or schools to contact school or district administrators at any time. Contact information for all of our buildings is available at our website. Our anonymous student/school safety hotline is also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Call or text 765-997-8585 or email hotline@marion.k12.in.us.

Due to the cancellation of classes on January 30 and 31 because of dangerous wind chill temperatures, the last day for students will now be on Tuesday, May 28. Please make a note on your calendars!

(Monday, May 27, is Memorial Day, so there will be no classes that day.)

These are the second and third make-up days added to the year due to weather-related closures. (MCS was closed on Nov. 15, 3018, due to icy roads.) Any more cancellations will result in more days being added to the end of the school year. We will continue to advise families if more make-up days are needed.
