Week of September 14 -18

Mason Dixon Elementary

Thank You!

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.

Internet Resources

Wifi is available in each school parking lot through the Kids Connect program provided by the state and WVDE. To log in, your child will need to log in using their email which is their Chromebook login followed by @boe.mono.k12.wv.us and then use their chromebook password. At Mason Dixon you must be in the front parking area to connect, it is not available past the end of the gym on the side of the building.


School bus wifi locations available in the community can be logged into by putting in your child's Chromebook login and password...once you click on the internet browser they simply put in the user name and password again when prompted for a user name and password.

Bus Locations in our area:

Core - Mason Dixon Park

Jakes Run - Olive Church

Daybrook - Daybrook School

Wadestown - Blue Mountain Realty


If your child does not have daily access to internet service at home, you can go to one of the above locations, pull up the weekly at home learning agenda and make a copy or screenshot of their activities for the week so they can complete at home, they can also upload assignments at the end of the week. Students must be completing and turning in assignments from each day to be considered present and attending school.

At Home Learning Agenda

To assist parents each week there will be an At Home Learning Agenda linked on the school website to help you quickly see what your children should be working on. Students will link to this information and submit their work through their Google Classroom. This is posted on the school's website but is available at this link.
