4.3.20 Ùrachadh MCS COVID-19

Dear Teaghlach Sgoiltean Cathair Mason,

Tha sinn a ’cur luach air d’ fhoighidinn agus do shealladh mar a bhios sinn a ’socrachadh nar fìrinn Ionnsachadh Iomallach. Mura h-eil thu air ar coisrigte a sgrùdadh COVID-19 website, we encourage you to do so.

Coimhead a ’bhidio seo of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing ways our Comet CommUNITY is coming together!

Mar an-dè aig 2f, chan eil cùisean dearbhte de COVID-19 ann an Sgoiltean Cathair Mason, agus 2,902 cùisean dearbhte ann an Ohio. Gu h-ìosal tha freagairtean do cheistean cumanta bho ar teaghlaichean agus am poball.

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:

Bidh tidsearan a ’toirt a-steach ionnsachadh bho gach raon susbaint. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.

Cha bhith feum aig oileanaich a bhith air beulaibh inneal airson an ùine ionnsachaidh aca. Bidh planaichean ionnsachaidh a ’toirt a-steach measgachadh de eòlasan a dh’ fheumas teicneòlas agus nach eil feumach air teicneòlas. Cuiridh oileanaich seachad ùine a ’leughadh, sgrìobhadh, no a ’fuasgladh dhuilgheadasan matamataigeach air falbh bho scrion.

Tidsearan sgìre sònraichte (leithid gym, ceòl, agus ealain) will each share one lesson a week for students to engage in.

Ma tha do phàiste aig ìrean 7-12:

Gheibh oileanaich planaichean ionnsachaidh seachdaineil bhon luchd-teagaisg aca airson a h-uile cùrsa a tha iad clàraichte aig MMS no MHS an-dràsta. Thèid na planaichean ionnsachaidh seachdaineil a chuir air dòigh gus an urrainn dha oileanaich a dhol an sàs ann an ionnsachadh anns an dòigh as fheàrr a fhreagras air a ’chlàr-ama agus na roghainnean ionnsachaidh aca. Is dòcha gum b ’fheàrr le cuid de na h-oileanaich a dhol an sàs anns gach cùrsa gach latha agus is dòcha gum b’ fheàrr le cuid a bhith ag amas air 1-2 cùrsaichean gach latha.

Bidh planaichean ionnsachaidh a ’cleachdadh grunn dhòighean eadar-dhealaichte gus oileanaich a thoirt a-steach gu bhith ag ionnsachadh susbaint agus sgilean ùra. Bidh planaichean ionnsachaidh a ’toirt a-steach measgachadh de eòlasan a dh’ fheumas teicneòlas agus nach eil feumach air teicneòlas.

Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. Ma tha feum aig oileanach air taic no stiùireadh a bharrachd le taobh sam bith de phlana ionnsachaidh, 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

Bidh an t-eòlaiche eadar-theachd agad ann an conaltradh riut gus planaichean fa leth a leasachadh airson lìbhrigeadh leasanan.

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

A ’tuigsinn gu bheil mòran theaghlaichean a’ magadh iomadh uallach aig an taigh agus gu bheil ùine neo-ionnsachaidh aig oileanaich rè latha sgoile cunbhalach (mar eisimpleir, aig àm lòn, a ’gluasad eadar clasaichean, no fosadh), tha sinn an dùil gum bi oileanaich a ’caitheamh nas lugha na latha sgoile gu gnìomhach an sàs ann an gnìomhan ionnsachaidh. Bidh an ùine a bhios oileanaich a ’caitheamh air gnìomhachd ionnsachaidh ag atharrachadh a rèir an astar ionnsachaidh.

Ma lorgas tu gu bheil an oileanach agad seachad agus gu bheil gnìomhan ionnsachaidh a ’toirt ro fhada no gu bheil an oileanach agad deiseil airson gnìomhan ionnsachaidh leudaichte, 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.

Ciamar as urrainn dhuinn taic a thoirt don chomannachd againn?
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!
