If school is delayed or cancelled, staff and parents of our students will be notified via SchoolMessenger, the school district's automated notification system.  Please take the time, if you have not already done so, to create a "contact manager account" so we can be sure to send any voice, e-mail, or text message to the appropriate numbers and/or e-mail addresses.  Directions to set up a SchoolMessenger "contact manager account" are listed on multiple pages on the School District website.  

School cancellations and delays will also be prominently listed on the main page of the district's website.


This list of TV stations will also be notified in case of school cancellations and delays.  Each station is responsible for the manner in which and speed that they are able to relay the information on to their listeners and viewers.  It is our intent to release accurate information as quickly as possible.

Senior Citizen Golden Age Passes are available at the Superintendent's Office for those citizens who are 65 years of age or older and live in the Orion School District.  These passes are honored at all home athletic events (except IHSA and conference tournaments), music programs, and plays (except those requiring royalty expenses).  If you are interested in obtaining a Golden Age Pass and meet the above-mentioned qualifications, please stop by the Superintendent's Office (1002 11th Avenue, Orion) to pick up a pass.  You do not need to renew your pass each year.  Once you obtain one, they are good indefinitely!
