News Blog Category - News Any family with a student new to MCS should attend onsite registration, which is set from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 23 and 24 at Marion High School. (Registration for all grades will be at that location. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Families can come at their convenience any time during those hours.

Please enter at Door 4 on the 26th Street side of the building. Parking is available in the parking lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the circle off 26th Street. 

Those with students who are new to MCS (including kindergartners) should plan to attend our onsite registration days to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Any MCS family is also welcome to attend onsite registration, but is encouraged to use the online registration option if possible. Online registration is already open; click here for instructions.

Any family with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year, including Little Giants Preschool students who will be in kindergarten this year, as well as any families who attended Kindergarten Roundup in the spring, can use the online registration system.
 
(Computer access and assistance with passwords or other issues will be available at Marion High School during onsite registration days.)
 
Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid online as part of the registration process, or at the onsite registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).
