Marion County School Orientations for upcoming year set

Marion County school orientations for the upcoming school year have been set for next week. All orientation dates and times are included below, sorted alphabetically by school and school level.

New students, especially those that are kindergarten-aged, should register now for school to avoid long lines on Monday, August 12, the first day of class for students in Marion County Public Schools.

New information is often shared at school orientations, giving students and parents opportunities to become accustomed to their new or returning school before the school year starts.

These special “meet and greets” also offer advance notice of class schedules, bell times, teacher assignments, bus routes and stop times, extra-curricular activities, and other school-related events.
