Chè Mason City Lekòl Fanmi,
Nou vle pran yon moman ak rekonèt kijan defi sa a evènman COVID-19 se kounye a. There are a lot of unknowns, and every day brings new information.
Gade videyo sa a of our staff and families sharing that while we may not be together physically, we are still in this together. And we are still Mason.
As of today at 2pm, pa gen okenn ka konfime COVID-19 nan Mason City Lekòl, ak 4,450 konfime ka nan Ohio. Anba a gen repons pou kesyon komen nan men fanmi nou yo ak piblik la.
I’ve read some concerning things about some of the online platforms like Zoom. How is Mason protecting students while they are online?
Mason City Schools takes the safety and privacy of our staff and students seriously. Lately, numerous Zoom meetings have been hijacked by inappropriate content. We’ve chosen not to use Zoom with our students. Pwofesè yo ka ofri opòtinite pou konekte atravè apèl videyo ap viv la (pa egzanp, through Google Meet) men yo pap egzije yo. Pwofesè yo kapab itilize teknoloji videyokratik asenkron yo tou, such as FlipGrid and SeeSaw, kominike avèk elèv yo. Our staff and students use Google on a daily basis, and during this period of time we’re leaning heavily on frequently used tools and software versus adding new tools. We know there’s no perfect tool for video conferencing, and as adults we have strong preferences.
How can parents keep children safe online?
Our Innovative Systems Department has developed an online parent course for keeping your child safe online. The course includes strategies for keeping your child safe while they’re connected to the internet, sharing available hardware options to set time limits and prevent specific sites, and offering software options to protect your child.
I thought we were off school on Friday for a Personal Learning Day. What’s happening now?
Because we have had quite a bit of disruption and about a week of Personal Learning Days before and after Spring Break while we transitioned to Remote Learning, we determined it would be best for staff and families to not have another day of students missing some of their newly established routines. That being said, our Remote Learning Experience plan is asynchronous learning, and does not require students to complete given assignments on a specific day or time. If your family requires more flexibility, please reach out to your child’s teacher(s).
