ATHLETIC EVENTS CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19 Two Marion County High School athletics events have been postponed due to the COVID-19 situation in a neighboring county. Tonight’s girls soccer match versus Taylor County High School and tomorrow night’s volleyball match, also against TCHS, have been cancelled. According to information from the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, Taylor County is experiencing a critical level of COVID-19 community spread. According to Marion County High School Athletics Director Michael Holt, both contests will be rescheduled.
Lebanon Elementary School has a job opening available for a custodian. Please share this information with anyone who may be interested. You can view all MCPS job openings here: https://www.applitrack.com/marionky/onlineapp/

MCPS families: With students returning to In-Person learning this week, we wanted to share with you how we'll communicate information about positive cases of COVID-19 among our students and staff. First, when we learn of a confirmed positive, we'll send an email to the families at the affected school with the appropriate information. We'll also keep a record of all communications on our district website here: https://www.marion.kyschools.us/Content2/covid19 We won't identify students, staff members, or particular classes. Only those considered close contacts will receive a follow-up from the regional health department's contact tracers. Also, keep in mind that our email database is based on information entered into Infinite Campus during online registration. Contact your child's school if you need to update your contact information.
For those interested in applying for GSP we’ll start sharing important resources next week!

As many of you have noticed, MCPS is using new communication tools. We’re still sending out voice messages, but we’ve added the ability to send out text messages as well. If you receive a text message from the school district or from your child’s school and would prefer to opt-out, simply reply to the text with ‘STOP’. You can always opt back in by replying with ‘START’. You can help us with our communication efforts by completing the annual online registration to make sure your contact information is accurate in Infinite Campus -- this is where our call list information comes from. If you haven’t completed online registration for the 2020-2021 school year, start by visiting this site: https://www.marion.kyschools.us/Content2/20654 Also, with our new voice messaging system, when you receive a call, say “Hello” which will trigger the message. Otherwise, you might notice a short delay before the message begins. We also encourage parents to include an up-to-date email address in Infinite Campus as well. There may be times throughout the year when MCPS or an individual school provides updates or information via mass email. If you’re having problems with our new communication tools, please complete our Communication Issues form here: https://forms.gle/v6HZNPRT4DB6cebGA Later this year, we’ll also move to a new redesigned website that will make finding information and school-related news much easier. Along with our new website, there will also be a mobile app available for download, which will make accessing that information even more convenient. And as always, we’ll continue to provide information on our social media pages as well as news releases sent to local media outlets.
