It is that time of the year to start thinking about preparations for possible inclement weather.  The Mason City Community School District currently provides an automated notification service.  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 provided to local radio stations and television stations KIMT, KTTC and KAAL and are typically found on their websites and are broadcast on their stations.

These announcements can also be found on the district's website ( and social media pages ( or Mason City Community School District) (and on Twitter @MasonCityMCSD).

For any additional questions about school cancellations/early dismissals/late starts, contact the Administrative Offices at 641-421-4401.
