We are excited to share a new MCS Covid-19 mcshub specifically dedicated to Mason City Schools’ COVID-19 response, 资源, 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 下午, 梅森城的学校中没有确诊的COVID-19病例, 和 119 俄亥俄州确诊病例. Below are responses to common questions from our families and community.
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.
游行 23-27 – Spring Break. No school is expected. You may use resources from the MCS学习动力网站 to add extended learning opportunities for your children.
游行 30 – 四月 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.
四月 6 and beyond – Based on information from state leaders and public health experts, we believe Ohio’s emergency order to close schools may be extended beyond April 5. 在这段时间, 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?
All votes cast so far will be counted. You may still vote absentee. If you haven’t yet voted, request an absentee ballot, and mail it to 520 Justice Dr., 黎巴嫩, OH 45036.
