截至昨天下午2點, 梅森城的學校中沒有確診的COVID-19病例, 和 2,902 俄亥俄州確診病例. 以下是我們家庭和公眾對常見問題的回答。
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:
教師將包括所有內容領域的學習. Learning plans will include a mix of introducing new content and allowing students time to practice and reinforce what has been introduced.
在整個學習時間中，學生都無需在設備前. 學習計劃將包括需要技術和不需要技術的經驗的組合. 學生將花時間閱讀, 寫作, 或解決屏幕之外的數學問題.
特殊地區教師 (如體育館, 音樂, 和藝術) will each share one lesson a week for students to engage in.
學生將收到老師每週針對他們目前在MMS或MHS上註冊的所有課程的學習計劃. 將組織每週的學習計劃，以便學生以最適合自己的日程安排和學習偏好的方式參與學習. 有些學生可能更喜歡每天參加每門課程，有些則可能更喜歡專注於 1-2 每天的課程。
Learning plans will primarily ask students to utilize tools and resources they are familiar with and have used throughout this year. 如果學生在學習計劃的任何方面需要額外的支持或指導, 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:
How long will my child be expected to spend focused on learning activities each day?
了解到許多家庭在家中要承擔多種責任，並且在正常的上課期間，學生有一些非學習時間 (例如, 在午餐時, 類之間的過渡, 或休息), 我們的期望是學生將花費少於一整天的時間積極參與學習活動. 學生參加學習活動的確切時間會因學習進度而異.
如果您發現您的學生不堪重負，學習活動時間過長，或者您已經準備好繼續學習活動, 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.

Can I still vote in the Primary Election?
Last week, the Ohio General Assembly approved a plan that allows all Ohioans to continue voting by mail until April 28. Don’t lose your vote and voice!
Any registered voter who has not already cast a ballot in the Primary Election can request an application to vote by mail by calling the Warren County Board of Elections at 513-695-1358. Voters can also vote by mail by downloading, filling out, printing, signing, and mailing their application to their county Board of Elections. Your completed ballot must be postmarked by Monday, 四月 27.
When you receive your ballot by mail from the Board of Elections, it will include prepaid return postage. Your completed ballot can also be delivered to the Warren County Board of Elections (520 Justice Drive, 黎巴嫩, 哦 45036) and placed in the available receptacle located outside the office no later than 7:30pm on April 28.
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!
