Дарагая Сям'я гарадскіх школ Мейсана,

З першым днём вясны!

Watch this encouraging відэазварот from Superintendent Jonathan Cooper as he shares what our new COVID-19 reality looks like for the Cooper Family, and how we can all stay connected and support each other during this time.

Па стане на ўчора а 14 гадзіне, няма ніякіх пацверджаных выпадкаў COVID-19 у школах Мэйсана, і 88 пацверджаныя выпадкі ў Агаё. Below are common questions from our families and the public, and our responses.
Are students and staff working next week during the previously scheduled spring break?

Mason City Schools will continue with our scheduled spring break from Monday, Сакавік 23, 2020 through Friday, Сакавік 27, 2020. All buildings, including the Central Office, will be closed to staff and the public. Families and students may continue to use the Learning Momentum site to maintain learning momentum as we begin the transition to a more formal Remote Learning Experience.

Here is the Ohio Department of Health’s recommendations and guidance for Spring Break and Student Travel.

I borrowed a Chromebook from the district. How do I register it?

If you picked up a Chromebook from the district recently due to the COVID-19 event and have not yet registered your device, please fill out гэтая форма. This helps us with our inventory, and to support you if you have technology issues in the future.

My child wants to be with friends. Should we have play dates?

Public health officials are urging parents to avoid having anyone from outside the family in their own home. And although the government’s recommendation allows for gatherings of fewer than 10 people, it’s simply not a viable option for most children to conform to the CDC’s six-foot rule for social distancing. Consider other ways to connect by having virtual playdates.

Do try to have your children go outside every day. They need to avoid getting too close to other people, but that doesn’t mean families can’t visit parks or take a walk in the neighborhood. Avoid playground equipment since the virus can remain on surfaces for many hours, but kicking around a ball or playing with their own toys outside is fine.

My high school student is very concerned about potentially missing Prom or graduation. Will we try to come up with something creative?

Yes. We recognize how important these milestones are for our Mason High School students. While we don’t yet have the answers for how these events will take place, we are committed to doing our best to come up with creative solutions.

How can we support our community?
#CometCarryOut: Гэта вельмі адказны час для нашага мясцовага бізнесу, асабліва ў гасціннасці. Падумайце пра падтрымку нашага мясцовага бізнесу у гэтым спісе.

Прыміце ўдзел у Палаце, каб з'есці бліц і паглядзець, колькі мясцовых рэстаранаў вы можаце падтрымаць.
