4.6.20 Pag-update ng MCS COVID-19

Mahal na Pamilya Mga Paaralang Lungsod ng Mason,

Nais naming maglaan sandali at kilalanin kung gaano hinahamon ang kaganapan ng COVID-19 na ngayon. There are a lot of unknowns, and every day brings new information.

Panoorin ang video na ito 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, walang mga kumpirmadong kaso ng COVID-19 sa Mason City Schools, at 4,450 nakumpirma ang mga kaso sa Ohio. Nasa ibaba ang mga sagot sa mga karaniwang katanungan mula sa aming pamilya at sa publiko.

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. Maaaring mag-alok ang mga guro ng pagkakataon upang kumonekta sa pamamagitan ng live na tawag sa video (Halimbawa, through Google Meet) ngunit hindi sila hihilingin. Ang mga guro ay maaari ring gumamit ng mga teknolohiyang nakabatay sa video na hindi naka-sync, such as FlipGrid and SeeSaw, upang makipag-usap sa mga mag-aaral. 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).

Paano natin masusuportahan ang ating kagalingan?
#CometCarryout: Ito ay isang napakahalagang oras para sa aming mga lokal na negosyo, lalo na sa mga mabuting pakikitungo. Isaalang-alang ang pagsuporta sa aming lokal na mga negosyo sa listahan na ito.

Makilahok sa Chamber's MADE to Eat Takeout Blitz at tingnan kung gaano karaming mga lokal na restawran na maaari mong suportahan. At saka, mag-donate sa Lugar ni Joshua at piliin ang "Comet Carryout" at maaari mong pagpalain ang isang pamilya na nangangailangan ng pagkain mula sa isa sa aming lokal na negosyo.

Making Masks for MCS Workers: The CDC is now advising Americans to voluntarily wear a basic cloth or fabric face mask when they go out to help curb the spread of the new coronavirus. If you are a crafty person and willing to help make cloth masks for Mason City Schools workers, we would love to take them! Learn how to make masks here.

Thank you for all that you are doing to support our Comets!

Taos-puso,
