3.29.20 COVID-19更新


We hope that your family was able to find some silver linings during this COVID-19 Spring Break. 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.

截至昨天下午2點, 梅森城的學校中沒有確診的COVID-19病例, 和 1,406 俄亥俄州確診病例. 以下是我們家庭和公眾對常見問題的回答。

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, 請發電子郵件 [email protected]

此外, 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(s) 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.
  • 如果您的孩子成績良好 5-12, please verify that he/she can log into Schoology.


本星期, 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 (星期三) to allow families time to plan (例如, 如果他們要帶孩子去看護). 

As a result, MCS learners should be able to access their first assignment by this Wednesday, 四月 1 at 8pm. For students in PK-4, this assignment will be emailed to their parent/guardian. 對於年級的學生 5-12, the assignment will be posted to Schoology.

注意: 如果您的孩子在干預專家的專門教室中接受了核心的學術指導, 干預專家將直接與您聯繫以製定個別的課程計劃. 另外, 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, 當然, spending time reading, writing and being active is always a good idea!
