Beste famylje fan Mason City Schools,

Wy wurdearje jo geduld en perspektyf as wy ús yn ús realiteit op ôfstân learje. As jo ​​ús tawiide net ferkend hawwe COVID-19 website, we encourage you to do so.

Horloazje dizze fideo of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing ways our Comet CommUNITY is coming together!

Mei yngong fan juster om 2 oere, D'r binne gjin befêstige gefallen fan COVID-19 yn Mason City Schools, en 2,902 befêstige gefallen yn Ohio. Hjirûnder binne antwurden op mienskiplike fragen fan ús famyljes en it publyk.

What types of learning assignments should I expect as we enter the next phase of Remote Learning on Monday?

The majority of our learning will be asynchronous so that students can engage at a time that is convenient to the family’s schedule.

If your child is in grades PK-6:

Learkrêften sille learje fan alle ynhâldsgebieten. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.

Studinten hoege net foar al har leartiid foar in apparaat te wêzen. Learplannen sille in kombinaasje befetsje fan ûnderfiningen dy't technology nedich binne en gjin technology nedich binne. Studinten sille tiid lêze trochbringe, skriuwerij, of it oplossen fan wiskundeproblemen fuort fan in skerm.

Spesjale gebietsdosinten (lykas gym, muzyk, en keunst) will each share one lesson a week for students to engage in.

As jo ​​bern yn graden is 7-12:

Studinten sille wyklikse learplannen ûntfange fan har learkrêften foar alle kursussen dêr't se op it stuit ynskreaun binne by MMS as MHS. De wyklikse learplannen sille wurde organisearre sadat studinten mei learen kinne omgean op in manier dy't it bêste past by har skema en learfoarkarren. Guon studinten kinne it leafst deistige dagen mei elke kursus dwaande hâlde en guon kinne har leaver rjochtsje op 1-2 kursussen per dei.

Learplannen sille in ferskaat oan ferskillende metoaden brûke om studinten te belûken by it learen fan nije ynhâld en feardigens. Learplannen sille in kombinaasje befetsje fan ûnderfiningen dy't technology nedich binne en gjin technology nedich binne.

Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. As in studint ekstra stipe of begelieding nedich is mei elk aspekt fan in learplan, they are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the Comet Connect Time (see below) and/or email their teacher.

If your student receives core academic instruction in a specialized classroom

Jo yntervinsjespesjalist sil kontakt mei jo opnimme om yndividuele plannen te ûntwikkeljen foar lessenôflevering.

How long will my child be expected to spend focused on learning activities each day?

Begripe dat in protte famyljes thús mei meardere ferantwurdlikheden jongleare en dat studinten tidens in reguliere skoaldei wat tiid hawwe (bygelyks, by it middeisiten, oergong tusken klassen, of útsparring), ús ferwachting is dat studinten minder dan in folsleine skoaldei sille trochbringe aktyf oan learaktiviteiten. Krekt hoe lang studinten har dwaande hâlde mei learaktiviteiten, sil ferskille ôfhinklik fan har lear tempo.

As jo ​​fine dat jo studint oerweldige is en learaktiviteiten te lang duorje of dat jo studint ree is foar útwreide learaktiviteiten, please reach out to your teacher.

How do I get refunds for activities, events or trips that have now been cancelled?

We are issuing refunds for activities and field trips that were scheduled in April but have now been cancelled. If you have questions about an activity or trip, please reach out to your school principal.

Hoe kinne wy ​​ús GEMEENSKAP stypje?
Shop for Senior Citizens: The Coronavirus crisis is affecting almost everyone’s routines, transportation, and way of life. This means that the usual social support and contacts older adults have with others may be diminished. For homebound seniors without support networks, this can be devastating. For some, the ability to even get to the grocery store for basic food items has been completely disrupted. In response, United Way of Warren County Volunteer Resource Center in partnership with Warren County Community Services, Inc. is recruiting volunteers willing to shop for 60 identified low-income and at-risk senior citizens in our community for the most basic and sustainable items. Sign Up to Help!

Unite with Light for Healthcare Professionals: On Sunday, April 5th at 8PM, place a luminary or a simple candle outside your home as we unite with light. Let this offer support to the many doctors, nurses and medical professionals working to aid others through the COVID-19 outbreak. Let this allow our community to shine bright despite the circumstances!

Wy wurdearje alles dat jo jonglerje. Jou josels genede!
