Week of September 14 -18
Mason Dixon Elementary
Thank you to all of our parents and students along with our teachers and staff that made this a successful first week of remote learning. While we can't wait for the day when we can be together learning in person I want to commend our families on how hard they have worked to provide their children with the necessary internet access and routines to make at home learning successful for their children. The support you provide for your children in this difficult time will be remembered by them for the rest of their lives.
