E like me ka lā 2pm, ʻaʻohe mau hihia i hōʻoia ʻia o COVID-19 ma nā Kula Kula ʻo Mason, a 2,902 ua hōʻoia ʻia i nā hihia ma Ohio. Below are responses to common questions from our families and the public.
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:
E hoʻopili nā kumu i ke aʻo ʻana mai nā ʻike a pau. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.
ʻAʻole pono nā haumāna i mua o kahi hāmeʻa no kā lākou manawa aʻo a pau. E hoʻopili nā hoʻolālā aʻo i kahi hui o nā ʻike e koi ai i ka ʻenehana ʻaʻole koi i ka ʻenehana. E hoʻolōʻihi ka manawa o nā haumāna i ka heluhelu ʻana, kākau, a i ʻole ka hoʻoponopono ʻana i nā pilikia makemakika mai kahi pale.
Kumu āpana kūikawā (e like me ka hale hoʻoikaika kino, mele, a me nā mea noʻeau) will each share one lesson a week for students to engage in.
Aia kāu keiki i nā helu 7-12:
E loaʻa i nā haumāna nā hoʻolālā aʻo hebedoma mai kā lākou mau kumu no nā papa āpau a lākou i hoʻopaʻa inoa ʻia ai ma MMS a i ʻole MHS. E hoʻonohonoho ʻia nā hoʻolālā aʻo i kēlā me kēia pule i hiki i nā haumāna ke hana me ke aʻo ʻana i ke ʻano e kūpono loa i kā lākou papa kuhikuhi a me nā makemake aʻo. Makemake paha kekahi mau haumāna e hui pū me kēlā me kēia papa i kēlā me kēia lā a makemake paha kekahi i ka nānā ʻana 1-2 papa ma ka lā.
E hoʻohana nā hoʻolālā aʻo i nā ʻano hana like ʻole e hoʻokomo i nā haumāna i ke aʻo ʻana i nā ʻike hou a me nā mākau. E hoʻopili nā hoʻolālā aʻo i kahi hui o nā ʻike e koi ai i ka ʻenehana ʻaʻole koi i ka ʻenehana.
Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. Inā makemake kahi haumāna i ke kākoʻo hou a i ʻole ke alakaʻi me kekahi ʻano o ka hoʻolālā aʻo, 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:
E hoʻopili aku kāu loea loiloi iā ʻoe e hoʻomohala i nā hoʻolālā pākahi no ka hāʻawi haʻawina.
How long will my child be expected to spend focused on learning activities each day?

Inā ʻike ʻoe ua kaumaha loa kāu haumāna a lohi loa nā hana aʻo a i mākaukau paha kāu haumāna no nā hana aʻo lōʻihi, please reach out to your teacher.
Pehea wau e loaʻa ai ka hoʻihoʻi kālā no nā hana, nā hanana a i ʻole nā huakaʻi i hoʻopau ʻia i kēia manawa?

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!
Nānā i nā ʻōmua mua.
Mahalo nui mākou i nā mea āpau a pau. Hāʻawi iā ʻoe iho i ka lokomaikaʻi!
