Marion County Public Schools employees are beginning a “hybrid” model of work this week.
The employees will choose home or a regular work location as their worksite. Teachers will input and finalize grades, then on Tuesday, participate in training for online instruction.
On Wednesday, students will participate in online learning – many for the first time. Teachers will make their assignments and activities available via their web pages found on each school’s homepage.
All schools can be accessed via www.marionschools.net. Students will find their assignments and activities on these teacher webpages. This “hybrid” model of work and instruction continues until April 16, when schools are set to reopen.
For students without computers at home, the district will work with families on a case-by-case basis. Contact your child’s school directly to make this request.
“Grab & Go” meal service is continuing this week. On Friday, lunches were delivered to 4,167 children. Last week, the district handed out 29,697 meals to students districtwide.
Currently, 22 schools prepare and distribute food at nearly 100 different locations. To suggest additional sites, call (352) 671-7050 (Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., wait times could be lengthy). Families can call 211, text “FoodFL” to 877-7877 or visit www.SummerBreakSpot.org for their nearest serving location. This program serves all children 18 and under regardless of whether they walk or ride a bicycle, bus or car to school and continues Monday-Friday until classes resume.
