Marion County back to school information

By on August 2nd, 2012

In Marion County , with new students and new schedules this year, officials say  parents may wish to visit their child’s school during orientation sessions.

These events give parents and students the opportunity to become accustomed to their new or returning school outside normal class hours.  They also offer advance notice of class schedules, bus routes and stop times, extra-curricular activities, and other school-related opportunities.

Here’s a listing of orientation dates and times by school.  New students, especially kindergarten-aged children, may register for school now.
