LEA Plan on the Safe Return to in Person Instruction and Continuity of Services

Hello MES Families and Community Members,

In the past Mason Elementary has hosted a Photos with Santa event. Due to COVID last year and this year we are not able to do this in our traditional format. The amazing Alyssa Havens has come up with an alternative option for families.   Please see the attached flyer to learn more about this opportunity.  Alyssa will donate 50% of the sales to the school.  The donation will go into the student activities fund where we can purchase fun things for the students or bring in presenters/entertainment for the students to enjoy.  Please see flyer attached.
Happy Holidays!

Dear Families,

Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than a week away?!  The weeks go by so quickly.   Just a reminder we only have school on Monday next week as Tuesday is parent-teacher conferences.   

With the Christmas season just around the corner we have planned 13 Days of Christmas (see attached) with different themes for the 13 school days before Christmas Vacation.  Please see the attached schedule of events.  There is no pressure to participate but we did this last year and it was really fun!  We also want families to know that if they need any assistance this holiday season with gifts or food please reach out to me so we will help support your family.

The School Club is busy preparing for the Holiday Fair (see attached) where children can buy gifts for their families.   Shopping will be broken up over 2 days, December 8th and 9th.  The students will wrap their gifts at school and we will send them home before the Christmas break.  We are so happy to have this amazing tradition back as we were unable to do  it last year.  

Nurse Carrier also wanted me to let you know that we are seeing illness pop up over the last week.  We are seeing the stomach bug as well as kids with colds.  Please remember everything is COVID until we test and find out it isn’t.  COVID numbers have increased dramatically in town as well so please don’t let your guard down.  Sick children and staff should not come to school until they have a negative COVID test and are 24 hours free of fever and vomiting.  We have plenty of rapid COVID tests so feel free to reach out if you need your child tested as it’s much easier than dealing with Dr. offices and clinics!   

It is getting cold out.  Please remember to send children in with warm jackets, hats, and mittens.  PLEASE write your childrens’ name on their gear as we frequently find gear left behind and it’s difficult to find the owner.  While at parent-teacher conferences please check our lost and found to see if anything belongs to your family.  

 I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving as we sure have a lot to be thankful for this year!
