4.8.20 MCS COVID-19 Update

Mahal naming Mason City Schools Family,

Remote learning is new to all of us. As we all adjust and adapt to our new way of “doing school”, your teachers and principals welcome your feedback about ways that we can support your child.

Panoorin ang video na ito of Superintendent Jonathan Cooper sharing ways families can access mental health support while buildings are closed.

Bilang ng ngayon sa 2pm, walang kumpirmadong kaso ng COVID-19 sa Mason City Schools, at 5,148 nakumpirma kaso sa Ohio. Nasa ibaba ang mga sagot sa mga karaniwang tanong mula sa ating pamilya at sa publiko.

Now that we know we won’t be back in school until at least May, what is Mason’s plan to let students pick up items from their lockers?

During the weeks of April 13 and April 20, Mason High School, Mason Middle School and Mason Intermediate School will have opportunities for families to retrieve items that have been left in lockers that are needed for remote learning experiences. In order to maintain social distancing requirements, families will be asked to remain in cars, and your child’s items will be placed in your vehicle’s trunk. MHS Principal Bobby Dodd, MMS Principal Lauren Gentene and MI Principal Eric Messer will share your school’s specific plans by Friday.

We understand that some of our MECC and Mason Elementary School students may have left items in their classrooms, or in other parts of the building. At this time, we are not able to reunite students with items from their classes. We will continue to work with our public health partners, and will let you know when we have determined a plan that allows for a more wide-spread pick up of items.

My child’s Chromebook isn’t working. What do we do?

First, email [email protected] and we’ll try to fix it virtually.

If we aren’t able to fix it:

  • Print out this sheet or hand write a description of the issue on a sheet of paper.
  • Slide this sheet inside of the Chromebook (between screen and keyboard)
  • Come to Mason Elementary (6307 Mason Montgomery Rd) between 8AM-10AM or 12PM-2PM (M-F) to swap it out.

My child misses getting to ride the bus. Anyway a school bus can come by?

During this time when buildings are closed, we know that some Comets are missing seeing their bus drivers and riding the bus. Also we have Comets marking special birthday milestones without their friends or extended family. To help make our Comets days a little more special during this time of social distancing, our Mason City Schools Transportation Department will be glad to pay your Comet a special visit with the Comet Connector Bus

Use this form to sign up to have the Comet Connector Bus come to your home and celebrate YOUR Comet!

Paano namin masusuportahan ang aming komunidad?
#CometCarryout: Ito ay isang napakahalagang oras para sa aming mga lokal na negosyo, lalo na ang mga sa ospital. Isiping suportahan ang ating mga lokal na negosyo sa listahang ito.

Lumahok sa Ginawa ng Chamber sa Kumain Blitz at tingnan kung gaano karaming mga lokal na restoran maaari mong suportahan. Sa karagdagan, magbigay ng donasyon sa Lugar ni Josue and choose “Comet Carryout” and you can bless a family in need with a meal from one of our local businesses.

Comets Chalk Your Walk: As families are coming up with things to do that are free or budget friendly while maintaining safe social distancing, we’re sponsoring a Comets Chalk Your Walk Challenge. We invite you to create bright, positive messages in driveways and on sidewalks throughout our commUNITY. Submit your pictures on this Facebook Event or by emailing [email protected].


Tumanaw ng nakaraang mga pagsunod-sa-panahon.


Thank you for all you are doing to be #CometStrong!

Taos-puso,
