3.30.20 Aġġornament tal-MCS COVID-19

Għeżież Familja Mason City Schools,

Ħafna minna qed naħdmu biex nagħmlu sens lin-normal il-ġdid tagħna. Kif tiskopri (jew terġa 'tiskopri!) 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!

Ara dan il-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, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Mason City Schools, u 1,933 confirmed cases in Ohio. Hawn taħt jinsabu tweġibiet għal mistoqsijiet komuni mill-familji tagħna u mill-pubbliku.

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

Illum, Governor Mike DeWine announced that all Ohio K-12 school buildings will be closed through at least May 1st. During this time, your Mason City Schools administrators, educators and staff will continue to provide essential services to our students and familiesincluding food distribution, remote learning, and mental wellness support.

While remote learning cannot replace students’ experiences in schools with their teachers, administrators and support staff, we will do our best to prepare learners for the next steps in their educational journey.

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?

Yesour 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 Triq Mason Montgomery. 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 which eliminated state tests like the AIR tests and high school end-of-course exams for the 2019-2020 school year. This coronavirus relief bill also allows members of the Class of 2020 to graduate if they are on track to do so, and eliminates the Third Grade Reading Guarantee for this year’s third graders.

Kif nistgħu nappoġġjaw il-KOMUNITÀ tagħna?

: Dan huwa żmien kruċjali ħafna għan-negozji lokali tagħna, speċjalment dawk li jinsabu fl-ospitalità. Ikkunsidra li tappoġġja n-negozji lokali tagħna on this list.

Ipparteċipa fil-MADE tal-Awla biex Tiekol Takeout Blitz u tara kemm hemm ristoranti lokali li tista 'tappoġġja. Barra minn hekk, jagħti lil Joshua’s Place and choose “Comet Carryout” and you can bless a family in need with a meal from one of our local businesses.

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.
