MASON CITY – Highway 122 is under construction in front of the high school. The new entrance/exit for the high school needs to be marked but this cannot be done until the paving is completed on Highway 122.
Therefore, in order to maintain optimal safety, the MCHS entrance/exit off of Highway 122 will be closed until the construction work has been completed. The drive in front of Mason City High School (Mohawk Blvd.) will be open and will remain open along with all campus parking. The drive behind John Adams Middle School/Mason City High School which begins at the Alternative High School will be closed to traffic.

Friday Night MCHS Football game traffic should plan to enter the MCHS Campus from Illinois Avenue. After the MCHS varsity football game, with the help of Mason City Police Department, fans parking in the south lot will exit the campus by the Highway 122 entrance/exit exiting to the west. Those fans parking in the east lot will exit onto Illinois Avenue. Once the south lot is clear, the Highway 122 exit and the Illinois exit will be available for those fans in the east parking lot. If you are planning to drop off your student, you should plan to pick them up at the Alternative School parking lot (this is northeast of John Adams Middle School) after the game. Parents are reminded that students kindergarten through sixth grade should be accompanied by an adult while at the football game.
Additional parking will be available north of the East Practice Field (grass east of the East Parking Lot). There will be parking attendants available to direct fans where to park Friday night.
