Mask Mandate Continues Until Supreme Court Hears Case

The PA Supreme Court issued an order on November 30, 2021 extending the duration of the mask mandate to December 8, 2021.

COVID RECOVERY GRANT SURVEY

The Marion Center Area School District is applying to receive Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER) to address learning recovery and the impact of COVID-19. These funds are designated for ONE TIME OR SHORT TERM EXPENDITURES to address the ongoing impact of the pandemic. The grant awards must be spent prior to September of 2024. We are seeking feedback from all district and community stakeholders to help determine how the district should best utilize these resources to address learning gaps, social-emotional concerns, barriers in technology, continued mitigation strategies, and other impacts of COVID-19. Please take time to let us know your opinion by completing the brief survey below on or before November 19, 2021. Thank you for your feedback!

Stay Put Order on Masking Mandate

Earlier this week, the Commonwealth Court issued a ruling voiding Acting Secretary Beam’s school mask order. The state filed an appeal immediately, which could trigger a stay of the Court’s ruling and keep the order in effect.  Secretary of Education Noe Ortega advised that schools should continue to observe the school masking order throughout the duration of the court’s proceedings. Until we have a clearer direction from the PA Supreme Court, we will continue to implement the mask mandate within the school building until we have a clearer direction on the matter. It is important to note that the current ruling does not overturn the CDC's federal mandate of wearing masks on school buses. Students are required to wear masks on buses, regardless of the PA Court ruling.
