Léif Mason City Schoulen Famill,

Mir sinn all sou vill Stierm duerchstoen – figurativ a wuertwiertlech.

Kuckt dëse Video of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing his appreciation for how Comet Culture values shape our actions and decisions.

We’ve started the phase of remote learning where students are learning new material, and assignments are graded. How are you taking into account all the unique situations and circumstances of this time?

MCS is committed to living out our Culture Guide through this time and to reflect a Comet Cares approach to teaching and learning. Our Comet Cares approach will allow us to be compassionate, responsive, and equitable to our students’ and families’ unique situations and circumstances. Students and their families are having a wide range of experiences during this worldwide crisis. Recognizing the challenges they may be facing, and that they are out of their control, our grading policies must do no harm to any child. During this time of remote learning, our focus is first and foremost on student learning and ensuring our students’ well being.

Graded RLE learning assignments/activities during remote learning can only maintain or raise a K-5 student’s final standards-based score or a 6-12 student’s final semester grade.

In grades 6-12, students who do not engage in Remote Learning Experiences, or who do not show basic levels of understanding, will receive an “Incomplete.” Our school teams will make every effort to support each student. If students are unable to engage in remote learning even with those supports from the school team, the school team will collaborate with students and/or family to determine future steps for the student’s learning.

Learn more about our approach to grading on the MCScovid19.com website.

My child is having conflicts with the teachers’ Office Hours. What should we do?

We have tried to schedule office hours to avoid conflicts as much as we can. If you are having a consistent conflict, please reach out to your child’s teachers or principal.

Where do we take fabric masks that we are making for Mason staff?

We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from our crafty Comet commUNITY! Your generosity is making it possible for our staff to assist with item reunification, food support, and other essential work during this time when our buildings are closed.

If you have completed masks to donate, simply email [email protected] and she will schedule a time for a member of our team to pick up the masks from your porch.
