COVID Information

As we begin the 2023-24 school year, it is our hope that our students’ education at Marist High School will not be disrupted by COVID-19. During the 2020-21 school year, our school building remained open due to the vigilance of our students, parents, faculty and staff. During the 2021-22 school year, we stayed open and returned to a normal school schedule.
