Very Important Information for the Upcoming Year!
Great news! We have eliminated school fees for the “core subject” classes, (English, Math, Science, Social Studies) with exception to AP courses due to the college end of the year testing fee. Some fees will remain for elective courses. We are requesting that you not pay your child’s School Fees until November 4. School Fee payments may be mailed, brought in by student, or paid online with a credit card on our homepage “Payforit” tab.
Requirements For Laptop Pick Up
A parent/guardian must have completed their child’s online forms, both "Marlington EMA(Emergency Medical Authorization) and "Marlington Other Forms"(laptop insurance agreement, parking permit release, media release and prescription approval) in order to receive their child’s laptop on the dates listed below. Our Free and Reduced Lunch Link is provided above as well. For your convenience we will have a few laptops available for your use at our mandatory meetings for those of you that are unable to complete your child’s online forms from home. Please be sure to bring the necessary information needed to complete all forms. (log-in, password, student ID number, physician contacts etc.) All forms must be completed by a parent/guardian.
