We have been made aware of concerns regarding water usage at the schools. The following is in hopes of addressing those concerns. On Tuesday afternoon, MCMHS experienced an interruption of water for an extended time. Today, L. K. Moss Elementary School experienced low pressure due to the county's preventative maintenance of flushing hydrants. Situations such as these call for the school district to implement its water safety plan in accordance with the Department of Public Health guidance. Faculty and staff took all precautions and provided commercially bottled water for hand washing along with alcohol-based hand sanitizer (at MCMHS). Only commercially bottled water was used for drinking water (provided to students by the school) as well as food preparation. When necessary, commercially manufactured ice was also used. These efforts were only part of our safety plan so as to have time to flush lines over a 24-hour period. Toilets were operable the entire time, and no student went without proper handwashing, food, drinking water or restroom use. As always, Marion County School District puts the safety and best interest of its students first!
If your child was enrolled in Marion County Schools for the 2022-2023 school year, he or she was granted $120 for summer P-EBT. If the child already receives EBT, you have already received your funds. If the child does not regularly receive EBT, funds have been added to the P-EBT this week. If you have lost your P-EBT card, call 888-421-3281 (if asked, enter 000-00-0000 for social security number). All questions can be directed to DFCS at Customer Contact Center (toll-free): 877-423-4746
