Mason County 4-H is partnering with Montcalm County 4-H to offer kids an Alternative Spring Break Experience by providing them with some virtual activities they can do at home if their families aren’t going on vacation. They are going to be hosting a cooking workshop for kids where they learn how to make homemade Baked Mozzarella Sticks and learn a little about the science behind them. See the attached flyer for more information!

Dear MCC School Family, This morning we were made aware of a suspicious vehicle and interaction with one of our Upper Elementary Students while walking home from school yesterday, March 4th. We are working with local law enforcement to investigate this matter and are asking that you help us keep a watchful eye out for our community's children. It truly takes a village to raise our children and it is all of our responsibility to help keep them safe. If you should see any suspicious activity, do not hesitate to report it to law enforcement and/or the school. We will work together to check into it. Thank you for your help. Stay Strong and Healthy Spartans!!

Good afternoon! Because life/accidents happen, we are in need of some clothing donations, boys athletic pants and girls leggings sizes 8 through 14! Please no jeans, corduroys or fleece lined pants! If you would like to donate drop them off at the Upper Elementary, call us at 757-5720 when you get here and one of us will run out and grab them! Thank you!
Through the hard work of our food service staff, Mason County Central Schools get 4 more weeks of USDA Farmers to Families food boxes. Upcoming dates are March 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd!
An important reminder for safety purposes, please do not drop off or have your children walk to school before 8:15, as we do not have adult supervision before 8:15. We have had students playing in the road and misbehaving which at times can transfer over to an unhealthy learning environment and potentially dangerous situations. Your help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

December 21, 2020 Dear School Community, As noted on our COVID-19 Dashboard, today, January 9, 2021 we learned about 2 School Associated Cases of COVID-19 in the Upper Elementary. Both are students. We are working closely with District Health Department #10 to identify Close Contacts of these School Associated Cases. Any students or staff that have been identified as a close contact will be notified by the health department and/or Mason County Central Schools as a part of the COVID-19 investigation process. Please answer the phone if the health department or MCC Schools calls you, as a contact tracer may be trying to reach you with important information. Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release the name of the individual with COVID-19. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you. With your help, we believe we can maintain a safe environment while also providing quality education. If you have any questions, contact District Health Department #10 at 231-845-7381. For answers to your COVID-19 questions, please call the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 or visit Michigan.gov/coronavirus. Sincerely, Jeff Mount Superintendent
Dear Upper Elementary Family, Reflecting on where we started and where we finished today, I am filled with nothing but gratitude. Gratitude towards our students, parents and staff in giving the very best they have. Most importantly, the level of grace you continue to display towards one another, sets us above any impassioned group of stakeholders I’ve worked with. This patience, kindness, and understanding is what our world needs most, and I’m Spartan proud to witness these values from each of you on a daily basis. This inspires me, thank you. I wish you the best of seasons, although a bit different, and nothing but love, hope, peace and joy in 2021! Love Big, Mr. Kimes
