4.21.20 MCS COVID-19 Family Update

Minahal nga Pamilya sa Mga Eskwelahan sa Mason City,

Sa Lunes, Abril 20, 2020, Gipaabut sa Gobernador DeWine ang pagsira sa tanan nga mga eskuylahan sa katapusan sa 2019-2020 tuig sa eskuylahan. While our school buildings are closed, our staff are working hard to ensure students are supported and learning continues. Your family’s well being is at the forefront of our mind. We know hearing the official word that school isn’t reopening this school year is difficult for a lot of us. We are grappling with the loss of special moments, and normalcy. Please reach out if you need help. Because while we may not be physically together, we are still here for you.

Pagtan-aw sa kini nga video of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing our district’s response to Governor DeWine’s closure order, and addressing a gathering by some members of the MHS Class of 2020.

Sa ubus ang mga tubag sa kasagarang mga pangutana gikan sa among pamilya ug publiko.

Why are you no longer reporting if there are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Mason City Schools community?
In our early communications, we were following the same public health guidelines that we do for communicable diseases. School buildings have now been closed long past the 14 days of transmission, so our students are no longer at risk of contracting the virus from a classmate or staff member while at school. Dugang pa, in order to protect people’s privacy, our public health and state education partners have now advised us to not share information specific to our school district. The state of Ohio does share the numbers of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ohio, as well as the number of confirmed cases by county. As of today, there are 116 confirmed cases in Warren County. You can regularly check this information for updates on the state’s COVID-19 website

Some MHS seniors went to the high school parking lot last night and didn’t practice social distancing. What is the district doing?
Last night, Mason City Schools joined school districts around the country in turning on the stadium lights, and asked the community to turn on porch lights to honor the Class of 2020 at 8:20pm. We appreciate that many students remained home. Bisan pa, we learned a lesson after seeing pictures and videos that showed some seniors gathering without physical distancing. As soon as reports came in, police were notified and responded. Our students were very respectful to law enforcement officers, and several apologized. We recognize that our students are craving connection. There is no doubt that social distancing is hard for many of our teens and children. We also now better understand how even events that are intended to honor students from afar could unintentionally tempt them to violate the state’s orders that protect Ohioans. We will apply lessons from this situation as we consider other ways to honor students. We ask for your support in helping our children and teens socialize safely.

Karon nga nahibal-an namon nga dili kami mobalik sa eskuylahan sa Mayo, mahimo ba namong kuhaon ang mga butang nga nahabilin sa mga eskuylahan ug mga bilding?
Kung ang imong anak nanginahanglan mga butang nga gikinahanglan alang sa hilit nga pagkat-on, palihug i-email ang punoan sa imong anak ug siya makigtambayayong kanimo aron mahatagan ang butang kanimo, o paghatag usa ka luwas nga paagi aron makuha nimo kini. Sunod semana, ipahibalo namon ang mga plano alang sa mga pamilya nga makuha ang nahabilin nga mga butang nga nahabilin sa eskuylahan. Aron mapadayon ang mga kinahanglanon sa pagpalayo sa sosyal, hangyoon ang mga pamilya nga magpabilin sa mga awto, and your child’s items will be placed in your vehicle’s trunk.

I love seeing the Comet Connector bus going through town. How can I sign up my child, and does it have to be for a birthday?
During this time when buildings are closed, we know that some Comets are missing seeing their bus drivers and riding the bus. Also we have Comets marking special birthday milestones without their friends or extended family. To help make our Comets days a little more special during this time of social distancing, our Mason City Schools Transportation Department will be glad to pay your Comet a special visit with the Comet Connector Bus! This does not have to be for a birthdayyou can sign up just to celebrate YOUR Comet!

Use kini nga porma to request the Comet Connector Bus come to your home.

Giunsa naton pagsuporta ang atong pagdayeg?
#CometCarryout: Kini hinungdanon kaayo nga panahon alang sa among lokal nga mga negosyo, labi na kadtong naa sa pagkamaabiabihon. Hunahunaa pagsuporta sa among lokal nga mga negosyo sa kini nga lista.

Pag-apil sa Chamber's MADE to Eat Takeout Blitz ug tan-awa kung pila ang mga lokal nga restawran nga imong masuportahan. Dugang pa, modonar sa Dapit ni Joshua ug pagpili “Comet Carryout” ug mapanalanginan nimo ang usa ka pamilya nga nanginahanglan og pagkaon gikan sa usa sa among lokal nga negosyo.
