4.3.20 MCS COVID-19 Vaovao

Ry fianakaviana Mason City malala,

Ankasitrahantsika ny faharetanareo sy ny fomba fijerinao rehefa miaina ao anatin'ny zava-misy iainana. Raha tsy nandinika ny fanokananay izahay COVID-19 website, we encourage you to do so.

Watch ity video ity of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing ways our Comet CommUNITY is coming together!

Hatramin'ny omaly amin'ny 2 ora tolakandro, tsy misy tranga voamarina momba ny COVID-19 ao amin'ny Sekolin'ny tanànan'i Mason, ary 2,902 raharaha voamarina tany Ohio. Ity ambany ity ny valin'ny fanontaniana iraisan'ny fianakaviantsika sy ny vahoaka.

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:

Ny mpampianatra dia hampiditra ny fianarana amin'ny sehatra atiny rehetra. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.

Ireo mpianatra dia tsy mila eo alohan'ny fitaovana amin'ny fotoana ianarany rehetra. Ny drafi-pianarana dia ahitana fitambarana traikefa mitaky teknolojia ary tsy mila teknolojia. Mandany fotoana amin'ny famakiana ny mpianatra, soratra, na famahana olana matematika lavitra ny efijery.

Mpampianatra faritra manokana (toy ny gym, mozika, ary ny kanto) will each share one lesson a week for students to engage in.

Raha zanaka ao amin'ny naoty ny zanakao 7-12:

Ny mpianatra dia handray drafitra fianarana isan-kerinandro amin'ny mpampianatra azy ho an'ny taranja rehetra izay ampidirina ao amin'ny MMS na MHS. Ny drafitra fianarana isan-kerinandro dia haorina mba hahafahan'ny mpianatra mandray anjara amin'ny fianarana amin'ny fomba mifanaraka indrindra amin'ny fandaharam-potoanany sy ny safidiny amin'ny fianarana. Ny mpianatra sasany dia mety maniry ny hirotsaka amin'ny taranja tsirairay isan'andro ary ny sasany mety aleony mifantoka 1-2 taranja isan'andro.

Learning plans will utilize a variety of different methods to engage students in learning new content and skills. Ny drafi-pianarana dia ahitana fitambarana traikefa mitaky teknolojia ary tsy mila teknolojia.

Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. If a student needs additional support or guidance with any aspect of a learning plan, 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

Ny manam-pahaizana momba ny fidirana an-tsehatra aminao dia hifandray aminao mba hamolavola drafitra tsirairay amin'ny fizarana lesona.

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

Fahatakarana fa fianakaviana maro no manakorontana andraikitra maro ao an-trano ary mandritra ny andro fianaran-tsekoly dia manana fotoana tsy ianarana ny mpianatra (ohatra, amin'ny sakafo atoandro, tetezamita eo anelanelan'ny kilasy, na fitsaharana), ny antenainay dia ny mpianatra handany latsaky ny iray andro fianarany amin'ny fandraisana anjara mavitrika amin'ny hetsika fampianarana. Ny halavan'ny fotoana lanjan'ireo mpianatra amin'ny fanaovana hetsika dia miovaova arakaraka ny halehiben'ny fianarany.

Raha hitanao fa be loatra ny mpianatrao ary ela loatra ny hetsika ianaranao na vonona ny hanao zavatra ampianariny maharitra ny mpianatrao, 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.

Ahoana no ahafahantsika manohana ny volontsika?
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!

Jereo ny fanavaozana teo aloha.

Mankasitraka ny zavatra rehetra ataonareo amin'ny juggling. Omeo fahasoavana ny tenanao!
