First Day of School - Wednesday, September 9, 2020

August 19, 2020


To the Entire Black Knight Learning Community,


At the Marion Board of Education meeting on August 17, 2020, the board voted to alter our school calendar.  The Superintendent’s Conference Day on March 12th, 2021 is now a student attendance day, and the first day of school for students’ attendance this fall was moved from September 8th to September 9th.  Part of the reason for this change was to align our calendar with that of the recently changed WF-L BOCES calendar.  A more significant reason for this change was to have an additional conference day with our staff at the beginning of the year to complete the training and protocol reviews for all of the health and safety mitigation requirements related to the COVID-19 virus. 


We apologize for any inconveniences this might have caused for your families.
