September 7, 2020:  A message from Superintendent Ginger Redlinger

Dear North Marion Families, In March of this year our world was turned upside down.  Since that time many things have changed except our resolve to bring students back to school as soon as it is safe to do so.  In the meantime, we will work as hard as we can to give every child the best education possible. We will continue to provide food, and to support families. Staff will be available everyday to help you.

The State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Colt Gill, published the following letter in the Oregonian yesterday and I wanted to share it with you.  The link to it is here:

En marzo de este año nuestro mundo se puso patas arriba. Desde entonces, muchas cosas han cambiado, excepto nuestra determinación de traer a los estudiantes de regreso a clases (en persona) en la escuela tan pronto como sea seguro hacerlo. Mientras tanto, trabajamos tan duro como podamos para brindar a cada niño la mejor educación posible. Continuaremos proporcionando alimentos y, para apoyar a las familias. El personal estará disponible todos los días para ayudarlo.
