MCS is committed to living out our Culture Guide through this time and to reflect a Comet Cares approach to teaching and learning, including our grading practices. Our Comet Cares approach will allow us to be compassionate, responsive, and equitable to our students’ and families’ unique situations and circumstances. Students and their families are having a wide range of experiences during this worldwide crisis. Recognizing the challenges they may be facing, and that they are out of their control, our grading policies must do no harm to any child. During this time of remote learning, our focus is first and foremost on student learning and ensuring our students’ well being. The link below offers greater detail about our approach to grading during remote learning.

Teachers may offer opportunities to connect via live video call (muab ua piv txwv, through Google Meet) but they will not be required. Teachers may also use asynchronous video-based technologies, such as FlipGrid thiab SeeSaw, to communicate with students.

At MMS and MHS, teachers will follow a schedule for when they offer opportunities, called Comet Connect Time, to connect via live video calls to help avoid students having overlapping meeting times.

All teachers will offer support during “Comet Connect Time.” This is a regularly scheduled time when teachers are available in real-time for questions or extra help. Teachers will choose from a variety of tools to connect with students, including Google Meet, Google Docs, and email. Each teacher will communicate his or her specific time and tool for Comet Connect Time.

Students and parents are, of course, also welcome to contact their teacher(s) anytime for help. Teachers will reply within 24 hours to all questions.

Our Learning Support Team continues to be committed to providing services and support to the greatest extent possible during this time, including meeting the individualized needs of our English language learners, students receiving reading support, and gifted learners. Below you will find additional information about each of these services. As always, feel free to call or email your child’s intervention specialist or teacher should you have questions. We are here to help!

English learners will continue to be supported by the ESL staff who will work in close collaboration with classroom/content teachers and parents.

Gifted Specialists will share activities with the students they typically interact with to provide enrichment and extension options. In grades 1-4, Gifted Specialists will email initial information on how to access gifted work. In grades 5 thiab 6, Gifted Specialists will post learning activities in Schoology.

Intervention and related services staff are contacting individual families via phone and virtual meetings to discuss services and to develop Remote Learning Plans that support both core and specially designed instruction. Based on each student’s Learning Plan, intervention specialists and related services staff will post or email weekly intervention work. Txuas ntxiv, team members (intervention specialists, related services staff and/or paraprofessionals) will schedule times to interact with students remotely.

Support for your student may take many different forms, depending on their needs. What we have learned from school districts in states that have launched remote learning before Ohio is that it can take a couple of weeks to settle into a new learning routine. Allow yourself and your child time to adjust, knowing that our team of educators is here to support you as we figure this out together.

Additionally, a few strategies you may wish to consider:

  • Encourage your student to take breaks throughout the learning process, rather than trying to complete everything in one chunk
  • Check out www.GoNoodle.com for elementary age students (a variety short videos to calm and energize)
  • Middle and high school students can access online resources here that include deep breathing and guided relaxation exercises, mindfulness and meditation exercises, and progressive muscle relaxation exercises.
  • Listen to relaxing music
  • Access MCS Mindful Music at: citysilence.org/learn, Password: mindfulmason
  • Look at your student’s learning activities for the day or week and work together to create a daily schedule and individual goals
  • Celebrate your student’s accomplishments, large and small
  • Have daily check-ins with your student about what is going well and where they may need help

Please start with your student’s teachers. If you have questions that your student’s teacher is not able to answer or you are seeking more support, building administrators will also be available to support you.

Email [email protected] and Mason’s technology team will assist you.
