Dear Teaghlach Sgoiltean Cathair Mason,

A ’chiad latha sona den earrach!

Watch this encouraging video message 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.

Mar an-dè aig 2f, chan eil cùisean dearbhte de COVID-19 ann an Sgoiltean Cathair Mason, agus 88 cùisean dearbhte ann an Ohio. Gu h-ìosal tha ceistean cumanta bho ar teaghlaichean agus bhon mhòr-shluagh, agus na freagairtean againn.
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, Am Màrt 23, 2020 through Friday, Am Màrt 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 an fhoirm seo. 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.
