3.30.20 MCS-19 COVID actualización

Estimado Mason City Escuelas de la Familia,

Muchos de nosotros estamos trabajando para dar sentido a nuestra nueva normalidad.. Como descubres (o redescubrir!) ways to establish routines and connections, please consider sharing pictures or videos with us on Facebook and Twitter. We know our students are missing their teachers and classmates, and we love seeing you all!

Reloj este video of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing what our staff is doing during this time of Remote Learning, and watch to the end for a very important question posed by Mr. Cooper’s oldest son.

As of today at 2pm, no hay casos confirmados de COVID-19 en las escuelas de Mason City, y 1,933 casos confirmados en Ohio. A continuación se encuentran las respuestas a preguntas comunes de nuestras familias y el público.

When will we get to go back to school in person?

Hoy, El gobernador Mike DeWine anunció que todos los edificios escolares de Ohio K-12 estarán cerrados al menos hasta el 1 de mayo. Durante este tiempo, los administradores de las escuelas de Mason City, los educadores y el personal continuarán brindando servicios esenciales a nuestros estudiantes y familias – incluida la distribución de alimentos, aprendizaje a distancia, and mental wellness support.

Si bien el aprendizaje remoto no puede reemplazar las experiencias de los estudiantes en las escuelas con sus maestros, administradores y personal de apoyo, haremos todo lo posible para preparar a los alumnos para los próximos pasos en su viaje educativo.

What’s happening to events and field trips scheduled for April?

All April events and field trips have been cancelled. Mason High School’s Prom, which was to be held on April 25th, is postponed for the time being. If a decision is made at a later date to cancel prom, students will be able to receive a refund for their prom ticket.

Are school counselors available during Remote Learning?

si – our School Counselors are available to students in need during regular school hours on regularly scheduled school days. Families or students may call or email school counselors and will have the option to set up a virtual counseling session. If you have trouble getting in touch with a counselor or if you need more immediate assistance, you may also reach out to Mental Wellness Supervisor Nicole Pfirman at [email protected] or by phone at 513-315-6775.

My child missed picking up a Chromebook or it isn’t working. Can I still get one?

Beginning Tuesday, every day from 8:00AM-10AM and 12:00PM-2:00PM you may pick up or swap a Chromebook at the Mason Elementary entrance, 6307 Mason Montgomery Road. Only one person may enter the vestibule at a time, and we ask that everyone maintains social distancing.

We are running low on devices, so please only pick up a Chromebook if your family doesn’t have access to a computer in your home. Please remember, all of our resources are cloud-based and can be accessed from a personally owned device.

What is happening with state testing?

Last week, the Ohio legislature approved House Bill 197 que eliminó las pruebas estatales como las pruebas AIR y los exámenes de fin de curso de la escuela secundaria para 2019-2020 school year. This coronavirus relief bill also allows members of the Class of 2020 graduarse si están en camino de hacerlo, and eliminates the Third Grade Reading Guarantee for this year’s third graders.

¿Cómo podemos apoyar a nuestra comunidad??

: Este es un momento crucial para nuestras empresas locales., especialmente los de hospitalidad. Considere apoyar a nuestros negocios locales en esta lista.

Participe en el MADE to Eat Takeout Blitz de la Cámara y vea cuántos restaurantes locales puede apoyar. Adicionalmente, donar a Joshua’s Place y elija "Comet Carryout" y puede bendecir a una familia necesitada con una comida de uno de nuestros negocios locales.

School Supplies for Families in Need: Retired Mason teacher Gayle Ertel is the steward of three Little Libraries in Mason. Instead of books, for now the one on Tylersville Road (across from the Middle School) is filled with school supplies for anyone who needs them. Please use the same precautions you would use when picking up groceries or food through a drive-through if you are willing to drop off supplies, or when picking them up.

Thanks for all that you are doing to support each other!
