4.3.20 Actualización de MCS COVID-19

Querida familia das escolas Mason City,

Agradecemos a súa paciencia e perspectiva mentres nos situamos na nosa realidade de Aprendizaxe Remota. Se non explorou o noso dedicado COVID-19 website, we encourage you to do so.

Vixía este vídeo of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing ways our Comet CommUNITY is coming together!

A partir de onte ás 14:00 horas, non hai casos confirmados de COVID-19 en Mason City Schools, e 2,902 casos confirmados en Ohio. A continuación móstranse as respostas a preguntas comúns das nosas familias e do público.

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:

Os profesores incluirán a aprendizaxe de todas as áreas de contido. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.

Os estudantes non terán que estar diante dun dispositivo durante todo o tempo de aprendizaxe. Os plans de aprendizaxe incluirán unha combinación de experiencias que requiren tecnoloxía e non requiren tecnoloxía. Os estudantes pasarán o tempo lendo, escribindo, ou resolvendo problemas matemáticos lonxe dunha pantalla.

Profesores de área especial (como o ximnasio, música, e arte) will each share one lesson a week for students to engage in.

Se o teu fillo está nas notas 7-12:

Os estudantes recibirán plans de aprendizaxe semanais dos seus profesores para todos os cursos nos que están matriculados actualmente en MMS ou MHS. Os plans de aprendizaxe semanais organizaranse para que os estudantes poidan participar na aprendizaxe do xeito que mellor se adapte ao seu horario e preferencias de aprendizaxe. Algúns estudantes poden preferir participar todos os días a diario e algúns prefiren centrarse en eles 1-2 cursos ao día.

Os plans de aprendizaxe utilizarán unha variedade de métodos diferentes para involucrar aos estudantes na aprendizaxe de novos contidos e habilidades. Os plans de aprendizaxe incluirán unha combinación de experiencias que requiren tecnoloxía e non requiren tecnoloxía.

Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. Se un alumno precisa apoio ou orientación adicional con algún aspecto dun plan de aprendizaxe, 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

Your intervention specialist will be in touch with you to develop individual plans for lesson delivery.

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

Entendendo que moitas familias están facendo malabares con varias responsabilidades na casa e que durante un día escolar normal os alumnos teñen algún tempo sen aprender (por exemplo, no xantar, transición entre clases, ou recreo), a nosa expectativa é que os estudantes pasen menos dun día escolar completo participando activamente en actividades de aprendizaxe. Exactamente o tempo que pasan os alumnos dedicados ás actividades de aprendizaxe variará segundo o seu ritmo de aprendizaxe.

Se descubres que o teu alumno está abrumado e as actividades de aprendizaxe tardan demasiado ou que o teu alumno está preparado para actividades de aprendizaxe prolongadas, 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.

What is Mason’s ongoing plan to support families facing food insecurity?

Please remain in your cars and meals will be distributed in adrive-upmanner. Student name and/or ID will be needed and you will be provided a display tag for your car to record that information. To limit contact, meals will be placed in the trunk of each vehicle.

Como podemos apoiar a nosa COMUNIDADE?
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!
