The Marion County Board of Education approved several amendments to the school calendar Tuesday evening, including the dismissal of school this Friday as the Lady Knights continue their quest to win the state championship.

The Lady Knights won in the first round of the state tournament against Bowling Green Wednesday, 64-43. They will play again at 1 p.m., Friday, at Diddle Arena in Bowling Green.

Marion County Public Schools will be closed on Friday, March 15, and that day will be added to the end of the school year.

In addition, the board approved using May 20-22 as three make-up days for when school was dismissed for weather and poor road conditions. If no other days are missed, the last day of school for students would be Thursday, May 23.
