3.29.20 Ενημέρωση COVID-19

Αγαπητή οικογένεια σχολείων Mason City,

Ελπίζουμε ότι η οικογένειά σας μπόρεσε να βρει μερικές ασημένιες επενδύσεις κατά τη διάρκεια αυτού του Spring Break COVID-19. Please give yourself grace, and know that your schools are here for you and we will get through thistogether.

Watch this video message from Superintendent Jonathan Cooper as he shares what our district’s transition to ongoing, remote learning experiences will look like this week.


Από χθες στις 2 μ.μ., Δεν υπάρχουν επιβεβαιωμένες περιπτώσεις COVID-19 στα σχολεία του Mason City, και 1,406 επιβεβαιωμένες περιπτώσεις στο Οχάιο. Ακολουθούν απαντήσεις σε κοινές ερωτήσεις από τις οικογένειές μας και το κοινό.

Why did the district initially focus on meeting students’ basic needs and supplemental learning?

Our first priority was to ensure that we had plans to feed the children in our schools facing food insecurity. We are grateful to our child nutrition staff and transportation staff who worked with community partners like Joshua’s Place and the Comet Cupboard to create seven student meal sites, including food support during Spring Break. Click here to find out how to get meals for your family if you are facing food insecurity.

It was also important to give our educators time to build meaningful Remote Learning Experiences and learn how to use new tools to support remote learning. Many teachers have previous experience with remote learning tools and some teachers will be trying out new techniques and technology solutions for the very first time. There will be some initial bumps, but remote instruction and supports will improve over time. Please be patient and remember that many teachers are also parents so they understand what you’re going through

What can my child and I do to prepare for remote learning?

Now is a great time to ensure that your child has access to a device such as a Chromebook or laptop and that your family has internet access. If you need assistance getting connected to either of these resources, παρακαλώ στείλτε email [email protected]

Επιπλέον, taking the following steps will help to ensure your child can access resources when they are shared:

  • If your child is in grades PK-4, you will receive a daily email from your child’s teacher(μικρό) at the address this email came to. Please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher if you prefer the email be sent to a different email address.
  • Εάν το παιδί σας είναι σε βαθμούς 5-12, please verify that he/she can log into Schoology.

Πότε και πώς το παιδί μου θα αρχίσει να λαμβάνει απομακρυσμένες εργασίες εκμάθησης?

Αυτή την εβδομάδα, MCS learners will engage in Remote Learning Experience Orientation assignments on Thursday and Friday. Assignments will be emailed or posted to Schoology the evening prior (Τετάρτη) to allow families time to plan (για παράδειγμα, εάν μεταφέρουν τα παιδιά σε έναν φροντιστή). 

As a result, MCS learners should be able to access their first assignment by this Wednesday, Απρίλιος 1 at 8pm. For students in PK-4, this assignment will be emailed to their parent/guardian. For students in grades 5-12, the assignment will be posted to Schoology.

Σημείωση: Εάν το παιδί σας λάβει βασική ακαδημαϊκή διδασκαλία σε μια εξειδικευμένη τάξη από έναν ειδικό παρέμβασης, ο ειδικός παρέμβασης θα επικοινωνήσει μαζί σας άμεσα για να αναπτύξει μεμονωμένα σχέδια για την παράδοση μαθήματος. Επιπροσθέτως, intervention specialists have been and will continue to contact families to discuss plans for supporting content area instruction.

What are Remote Learning Experience Orientation assignments?

RLE Orientation assignments will engage students in content related to digital safety and etiquette while also reviewing key content and allowing time to practice new technologies. They are designed to test our systems and allow time to troubleshoot if students have trouble accessing them.

What should my child be doing between now and Thursday?

The MCS Learning Momentum site provides many quality educational resources curated by Mason educators. We encourage our students to explore these resources to maintain their learning momentum as we transition to a Remote Learning Experience. The site also includes a calendar of many live virtual events that your family may wish to explore! And, of course, spending time reading, writing and being active is always a good idea!

Πώς μπορούμε να υποστηρίξουμε την κοινότητά μας?
#CometCarryout: Αυτή είναι μια πολύ κρίσιμη στιγμή για τις τοπικές επιχειρήσεις μας, ειδικά εκείνοι που φιλοξενούνται. Εξετάστε το ενδεχόμενο να υποστηρίξετε τις τοπικές επιχειρήσεις μας σε αυτήν τη λίστα.

Συμμετέχετε στο MADE to Eat Takeout Blitz του Επιμελητηρίου και δείτε πόσα τοπικά εστιατόρια μπορείτε να υποστηρίξετε. Επιπλέον, δωρίστε στο Joshua's Place και επιλέξτε "Comet Carryout" και μπορείτε να ευλογήσετε μια οικογένεια που έχει ανάγκη με ένα γεύμα από μια από τις τοπικές επιχειρήσεις μας.

Make Homemade Facemasks: Warren County is asking crafty citizens to consider making homemade fabric face masks for a commUNITY-wide effort to stock our hospitals, long-term care facilities and first responders with this alternative face protection. We’ve already seen several Comets getting in on the #CraftersAgainstCOVID19 action, and would love to see your pictures!
