In an effort to make sure that every child in the Mason Public School District has an opportunity to receive a free and appropriate education, we are encouraging community members within Mason to help us identify homeless families that have children ages 3-18 that may not be attending school.
The Mason Public School District is attempting to reach out to these families in order to assist them in obtaining food and shelter, and to facilitate the process to enroll their children in school.
If you know of such a family, please call the Mason Public Schools Homeless Liaison, Jodi Somerville at 517-676-6490.
Thank you for your assistance in helping homeless families in our community.
