New District-Wide Automated Phone Answering System
In an effort to more effectively respond to families and community, the Mason City Community School District will be implementing an automated phone answering system. Conversion to this system will begin on Friday, February 27 and is planned to be fully implemented by March 2, 2015. This system will assist callers to directly connect with the appropriate person and/or department to whom they wish to speak when dialing a building or district number. Callers will receive an automated greeting providing options that are available to reach within each building. If the party you are trying to reach is unavailable, there is the opportunity to leave a voice message. The voice message will also be automatically forwarded to the party via email. Please contact the office of Communications and Community Relations at 641-421-4401 if you have any questions. Thank you!
