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

今天, 州长Mike DeWine宣布,俄亥俄州所有K-12学校建筑将关闭至至少5月1日. 在这段时间, 您的梅森市学校管理员, 教育工作者和教职员工将继续为我们的学生和家庭提供基本服务 – 包括食物分配, 远程学习, and mental wellness support.

虽然远程学习无法用老师代替学生在学校的经历, 管理员和支持人员, 我们将尽最大努力为学习者的下一步学习做好准备.

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?

是 – 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 消除了国家考试,例如AIR考试和高中课程结束时的考试 2019-2020 school year. This coronavirus relief bill also allows members of the Class of 2020 如果他们按计划毕业的话, and eliminates the Third Grade Reading Guarantee for this year’s third graders.


: 对于我们的当地企业来说,这是非常关键的时刻, 尤其是那些待客的人. 考虑支持我们的本地业务 在这个清单上.

参加商会的“ MADE吃外卖突击”,看看您可以支持多少家当地餐馆. 此外, 捐赠给约书亚的地方 并选择“ Comet Carryout”,您可以从我们一家当地企业的餐点中祝福一个有需要的家庭.

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!
