News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools takes all reports of threats seriously. Safety of our students is top priority. We would not put students or staff into a situation we believed to be unsafe.

All reports of threats are investigated, and we cooperate with local law enforcement.

In addition, we are constantly evaluating our safety and security measures, including our prevention and response procedures, and we make changes when needed. We are committed to a safe and healthy learning environment.

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 here. 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.

News Blog Category - News Marion Community Schools invites you to attend an upcoming community event that helps some of our families in need.

Help the Hopeful assists local children with medical challenges and their families, and has raised nearly $2.4 million to help about 220 children over the past 26 years. Many of the children helped are students of Marion Community Schools, and we are grateful to the continuing efforts of Help the Hopeful, and its leader Jay Yeakle, MHS alum and local businessman, who was recognized as February Champion of the Month by the City of Marion for his work with Help the Hopeful.

The help provided to these families enables them to travel with their children as they receive medical treatment at specialized pediatric units elsewhere in the state, such as Riley Children’s Hospital and Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital, and helps them with other expenses related to the demands of getting their children appropriate care and services.

Now, you have the chance to contribute to this effort that changes the lives of families in our community. Help the Hopeful’s annual fundraising auction is coming up at 1 p.m. March 3 at the gymnasium at St. Paul Catholic School, 1031 Kem Road, Marion. Help the Hopeful distributes 100 percent of the proceeds to families in need.
