The Mason City Community School District is offering a new feature on their website – “The Virtual Backpack.”  The school district is a part of the larger community in which it carries out its education mission.  The school district has been a conduit for providing information by permitting distribution of non-school materials to inform students and their families of youth-related programs or activities, and of events that intend to improve the health, education or welfare of students according to Board policy.

Mason City Community School district has implemented a “green” approach for distributing information from school sponsored activities and flyers from non-school community organizations to which approval is granted.


To learn more about this new feature, click on the backpack icon in the upper right hand section of the website or on the Vitrual BackPack link in the menu on the left of the district’s web page.  You will find on the Virtual BackPack web page information about “What is the Virtual BackPack,” how to submit materials for the BackPack, and a folder that you can access all of the current flyers, such as the Royal Wentworth Memorial 5K Run & Walk, Mohawk Danzers Dance Clinic, North Iowa Youth Center events, and Roller City Fall Kickoff Skates.
