How Does the District Come Up With Some of Those Fees?
Have you ever wondered what criteria or guidelines the school district uses to come up with some of the fees they charge? Iowa Code dictates many of the fees that are charged and those that cannot be charged. Click here for a list of allowable fees and the rationale for those fees. If you ever have a question about fees being charged, please contact your student's building office or the Administration Building Business Office at 641-421-4404.
Early Dismissals/Cancellations/Late Starts
The Mason City Community School District currently provides an automated notification service through PowerSchool/AlertSolutions2. This notification provides families with automated phone calls, emails and text messages for notifications from the school district when school is being cancelled, dismissing early or having a late start. These notifications are sent to the numbers and email addresses parents have provided to the school district through PowerSchool (the student management software). If at any time you would like to update your preferences, parents may do so by logging into PowerSchool.
These notifications are also sent to local radio stations and are typically found on their websites and are broadcast on their stations.
Television stations KIMT, KTTC and KAAL list the school closings, early dismissals and cancellations on their respective websites.
For any additional questions about school cancellations/early dismissals/late starts, contact the administrative Offices at 641-421-4401.
