We are aware of inaccurate and unfair accusations being spread on social media regarding an incident on Friday, Sept. 14, at McCulloch Junior High School. Our professional educators who witnessed this incident have the facts. We have faith in them and are confident that they acted responsibly and appropriately, and with care for our student.

We are of course saddened that this student was injured; however, no adult touched this student. This was an unfortunate accident.

Every single day the well being and safety of all of our students, our staff, and all stakeholders of Marion Community Schools is our top priority.
