On February 1, the Board of Education approved an instructional plan for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year. The Board voted to continue following the current hybrid instructional model. This means general education students will either be participating in full-time distance learning or Blue Team/Red Team in-person hybrid instruction until June 9, 2021. Students in Learning Labs and special education basic classrooms will continue on their current plan for the remainder of the year.
If you would like to make a change to your current selection for your elementary student beginning on March 15, please contact your school’s office by February 19. You do not need to contact us if your choice will remain the same.
Please fill out the form you will receive from your principal which will be sent later today by February 5 to make your selection for the third trimester which begins on March 15.
We want to remind families and staff to be prepared for the potential shift back to full-time distance learning on short notice. This shift could be at the direction of the Ingham County Health Department or Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. In this case, students would resume their instruction through distance learning for the required amount of time.
This decision was not an easy one and we understand that this may not be the best scenario for everyone. The District and the Board of Education must make decisions to balance safety and education for all 3,400 students and families in Mason and our staff. We hope this will help all families and staff plan for the remainder of the school year and we appreciate your continued support.
