Final Quarantine Guidance

This information is based upon the most recent CDC Guidelines for COVID-19, updated January 7, 2022.

Board Revises Health & Safety Plan

Monday evening the Marion Center Area School Board voted to revise the District's current Health & Safety plan to allow students who are identified as close contacts to a COVID positive person to remain in school as long as they are not demonstrating any symptoms. Any staff or students who are currently quarantined and not exhibiting any COVID 19 symptoms may return to school. The district will continue to contact trace and notify parents of children considered close contacts. We continue to ask parents to be diligent and monitor their child's health. Please keep your child at home if they are not feeling well. Masks continue to be required on school buses based on the federal mandate. They are optional in the building for those that choose to wear them. Please click "Read full story" to view the current Health and Safety Plan.

Troubling Posts on TikTok

Dear Families, The Marion Center Area School District has become aware of a troubling post that has been shared widely this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17. The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district. It has been reported that these posts are circulating across the nation. Although we are not aware of any credible threats to specific schools in Pennsylvania, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it seriously. Additionally, the district has been in contact with the Pennsylvania State Police and our security team regarding the post. We may have an increased police presence on our campus and will have security in all buildings on Friday as an added precaution. This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else specifically toward schools in our area, please report the information immediately to the Pennsylvania State Police. As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students. Sincerely, Clint Weimer Superintendent
