Due to the potential inclement weather and COVID-related staffing issues, Marked Tree School District is utilizing an AMI day for Thursday, January 6th. The forecast is not clear and there could be weather coming around the time that our buses run. We would rather err on the side of caution and student safety.
Parents, There is a possibility of inclement weather tomorrow. Moving forward, we will notify you about school closings on our website (markedtreeschools.com), through text and a phone call, and through social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram).
