January 23, 2018: Lockdown Drill CANCELLED for January 24th. Check back for re-scheduled date.
January 18, 2018: Ensuring the safety and security of the students and staff in NMSD is a very high priority to us. As a component of our ICS structure and Standard Response Protocol, it is necessary that we practice our emergency and crisis response plans by conducting drills designed to exercise our procedures. We will be conducting various drills throughout the school year. Students and Staff will practice three primary emergency drills each year. They are FIREDRILLS, LOCKDOWN DRILLS, AND SHELTER-IN-PLACE DRILLS. This coming January 24th, we will practice our first Lockdown Drill. Hubbard Police Department and Marion County Sheriff's Office will be on site to observe and evaluate how well we execute our Standard Response Protocol procedures.

Dear North Marion Community,
We are thrilled to begin work on the newly approved school bond and are wasting no time getting started! We will be gathering folks and convening the Bond Oversight Committee and have started preparations for selling the bonds early next year.
We're currently contracting with consultants for the design work. This will include architects, mechanical, electrical, civil & structural engineers, landscape architect and others on board. There will be traffic studies, land surveys and soils tests to schedule, and we'll be assembling the Design Advisory Committee to shepherd the process along. The RFP for our Project Management firm will go out in the coming weeks and we expect to kick off the design team and process for the High School and CTE remodel immediately after the first of the year.
Additionally, we will be organizing Community Information Nights in late spring to present renderings of the high school new academic wing as we progress with the building design.
Stay tuned for further updates as we develop the schedule for all the exciting improvements to your school district!
We are very THANKFUL for the community’s support .

Dear Community Members,
Thank you for passing the North Marion Bond and investing in our community. The North Marion School Board, parent leaders, staff, students, local media, and citizens all contributed to the bond’s successful passage. While the first phase is now complete, the next phase involves a great deal of planning, input and the creation of an oversite committee. I will begin to develop a draft timeline of the key steps in the process and post it on the website in the next week or two as details begin to emerge.
The North Marion School District is four generations strong and planning for the future. Our community values education and has chosen to invest in a new building for our high school students and a range of safety and climate improvements designed to provide all North Marion School District children a great campus. Your investment will help us build strong future community members who will pay forward your investment as stewards of the next generation of Huskies.
