Dear Families,

Happy New Year!   I hope you all had a wonderful break.  Please remember to send your children in with warm clothes!  We go outside everyday unless it’s raining, extremely cold, or the playground is unsafe.  Fresh air and an opportunity to run around are very important. The children are allowed to bring in plastic sleds with the expectation that they will share their sleds with the other children.  The sledding hill is monitored closely and the paraeducators have strict rules to keep the children safe. On occasion we will need to close the sledding hill when it becomes too icy and unsafe.   We are also in need of spare boots in smaller sizes for kids in grades Pk-2 if you have any winter boots that your children have outgrown we would love to have them!  

The Mason School Board will meet  Monday, January 6th at 6:30.   The first part of the meeting will be a budget hearing where we will discuss the 2020-21 school budget and warrant articles that will be voted on in March.   This is your first opportunity to see the budget and ask questions. The deliberative session is on Saturday, February 1st at 9:00 am where the final budget amounts that will appear on the March ballot will be discussed and voted on by the Mason Residents.  Please join us at these meetings to learn more about the budget process.
