Preparing for Upcoming Weather Conditions

Marion County Public Schools would like to offer this friendly reminder that forecasted temperatures this week will be dipping into the negative degrees. While our buses and schools will be warm, students waiting for buses should remember to dress for the cold. The best approach is layering clothing (coat or jacket, sweatshirt or sweater, etc.), plus head and hand coverings. Please do not allow children to leave the house with exposed skin (ears, hands, legs, etc.), as this increases the chance of frostbite in cold weather. Working together we can beat the cold this winter season!
