The PA Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the appeal on that date and may or may not decide to keep the mandate in place during the appeal process.

Mask Mandate Continues Until Supreme Court Hears Case

The PA Supreme Court issued an order on November 30, 2021 extending the duration of the mask mandate to December 8, 2021. The PA Supreme Court is scheduled to hear the appeal on that date and may or may not decide to keep the mandate in place during the appeal process. The District will continue to keep you updated on the situation.

Stay Put Order on Masking Mandate

Earlier this week, the Commonwealth Court issued a ruling voiding Acting Secretary Beam’s school mask order. The state filed an appeal immediately, which could trigger a stay of the Court’s ruling and keep the order in effect.  Secretary of Education Noe Ortega advised that schools should continue to observe the school masking order throughout the duration of the court’s proceedings. Until we have a clearer direction from the PA Supreme Court, we will continue to implement the mask mandate within the school building until we have a clearer direction on the matter. It is important to note that the current ruling does not overturn the CDC's federal mandate of wearing masks on school buses. Students are required to wear masks on buses, regardless of the PA Court ruling.

For this reason, we practice safety drills throughout the year to help our staff and students know what to do in an emergency. On Tuesday, October 26, 2021, the Marion Center Area School District conducted a lockdown drill in our buildings.
