3.20.20 MCS-19 COVID actualización

Estimado Mason City Escuelas de la Familia,

We are excited to share a new MCS Covid-19 mcshub specifically dedicated to Mason City Schools’ COVID-19 response, recursos, and updates. During Spring Break, we will not be providing daily communication, so feel encouraged to explore this site if you are missing our regular connections. As of yesterday at 3:30 pm, no hay casos confirmados de COVID-19 en las escuelas de Mason City, y 119 casos confirmados en Ohio. Below are responses to common questions from our families and community.

Reloj este video of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing how the Cooper Family will be trying to unplug over Spring Break.

What should families be expecting after Spring Break (3.23.20-3.27.20) is over?

Here’s what our Remote Learning Plan looks like over the next few weeks.

marzo 23-27Spring Break. No school is expected. You may use resources from the Sitio de MCS Learning Momentum to add extended learning opportunities for your children.

marzo 30 – abril 3 Teachers continue planning and begin testing Remote Learning Experiences. Beginning Thursday, April 2nd, students will access remote learning tools by engaging with ungraded lessons that review or enrich previously taught content. This will help ensure everything is running smoothly before fully implementing new lessons.

abril 6 and beyondBased on information from state leaders and public health experts, we believe Ohio’s emergency order to close schools may be extended beyond April 5. Durante este tiempo, teachers and students will engage in new learning using our Remote Learning Experience model, with families offering support at home. This new learning is assessed and graded.

Have we heard any more about AP testing?

The College Board’s AP Program is finalizing streamlined AP Exam options that would allow students to test at home, depending on the situation in May. They are working to give every AP student the opportunity to claim the college credit they’ve earned. The AP Program will communicate the details of these additional solutions to educators and students by March 20. View more information about AP from the College Board.

I wanted to vote at the polls on March 17th. What should I do now?

Todos los votos emitidos hasta ahora serán contados. You may still vote absentee. If you haven’t yet voted, request an absentee ballot, y envíelo por correo a 520 Justice Dr., Líbano, OH 45036.

How can we support our community?
Donate blood: Help save lives by giving blood. We are in the midst of a national blood shortage brought on by the outbreak of COVID19. Hoxworth Blood Center needs all eligible blood donors to schedule a donation at your earliest convenience. As a reminder, blood donation is a safe, sterile process and there is no risk of contracting the virus by donating blood.

Families in Need: If you would like to help support families in need, consider donating to Joshua’s Place or to Comet Cupboard. Mason parents can financially contribute at www.spsezpay.com/Mason/login.aspx. Mire debajo de Actividades para el Cometa Armario ME / MI.
