INFORMATION FOR NEW FAMILIES regarding: The Mason-Rice Directory

Hello and welcome to Mason-Rice School!  The Mason-Rice directory, an initiative of the Mason-Rice PTO, is a key way that parents connect with each other throughout the school year. Mason-Rice has an online directory as well as a printed directory that is created during the fall.  

If you are a new family or a returning family whose previous child has graduated, please have one parent complete your directory information. He/she will enter the information for both parents -- even if they are in different households. More directions for completing the directory infrormation can be found after the link below.  

Just click or copy/paste the following link to get started:

join.myschoolanywhere.com

Enter the school code: masonrice2016

IMPORTANT: New Dismissal Routine

Effective September 19, We are asking that ALL parents, guardians, babysitters, and relatives picking up from the main door wait for students on the grass across from the front door. They may also wait by the right side of the door AFTER the second air conditioner.  

Please no longer wait on the sidewalk in front of the door for students.  Students, who use the front door, will be crossing to the grassy area via of the walkway.   To make this work and be safer for all, we need EVERYONE'S cooperation -- so please tell any caregivers who may be picking up your child. Thank you in advance

IMPORTANT: Blue Zone & Parking Info 
Also, we all need to work together to get children to and from school safely every day.  With that goal in mind we ask all parents, grandparents and caregivers to read and abide by our Blue Zone & Parking guidelines.

Here is a link to the Blue Zone & Parking Map.  

Here is a link to the Blue Zone & Parking document.

It is a quick read so please take the time to do it.  Your safety and your child's safety is worth it.
