4.3.20 Atualização MCS COVID-19

Família Dear Mason City Schools,

Agradecemos sua paciência e perspectiva ao nos estabelecermos em nossa realidade de Aprendizado Remoto. Se você não explorou a nossa dedicada COVID-19 website, we encourage you to do so.

Ontem às 14h, não há casos confirmados de COVID-19 em Mason City Schools, e 2,902 casos confirmados em 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:

Os professores incluirão o aprendizado de todas as áreas de conteúdo. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.

Os alunos não precisarão estar na frente de um dispositivo durante todo o tempo de aprendizagem. Os planos de aprendizagem incluirão uma combinação de experiências que requerem tecnologia e não requerem tecnologia. Os alunos passarão o tempo lendo, escrita, ou resolvendo problemas matemáticos longe de uma tela.

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

Se seu filho está na série 7-12:

Os alunos receberão planos de aprendizagem semanais de seus professores para todos os cursos em que estão matriculados no MMS ou MHS. Os planos de aprendizagem semanais serão organizados para que os alunos possam se envolver com a aprendizagem da maneira que melhor se adapte a sua programação e preferências de aprendizagem. Alguns alunos podem preferir se envolver com cada curso diariamente e alguns podem preferir se concentrar em 1-2 cursos por dia.

Os planos de aprendizagem utilizarão uma variedade de métodos diferentes para envolver os alunos na aprendizagem de novos conteúdos e habilidades. Os planos de aprendizagem incluirão uma combinação de experiências que requerem tecnologia e não requerem tecnologia.

Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. Se um aluno precisar de suporte ou orientação adicional com qualquer aspecto de um plano de aprendizagem, 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

Seu especialista em intervenção entrará em contato com você para desenvolver planos individuais para a entrega das aulas.

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

Entender que muitas famílias estão lidando com múltiplas responsabilidades em casa e que durante um dia normal de aula os alunos têm algum tempo sem aprendizagem (por exemplo, no almoço, transição entre classes, ou recesso), nossa expectativa é que os alunos gastem menos do que um dia escolar inteiro se engajando ativamente em atividades de aprendizagem. Exatamente quanto tempo os alunos passam envolvidos em atividades de aprendizagem irá variar dependendo do seu ritmo de aprendizagem.

Se você achar que seu aluno está sobrecarregado e as atividades de aprendizagem estão demorando muito ou que ele está pronto para atividades de aprendizagem estendidas, 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?

Mason City Schools Child Nutrition Department serves meals on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:30AM-1:00 PM at Mason Intermediate School, 6307 Mason-Montgomery Road, e 11:30AM-12:30PM at St. Vincent DePaul, 1065 Reading Rd, and Western Row Elementary, 755 Western Row Road.

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 nossa 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!
