This year we are taking a break from many of our standard procedures, including this year's veteran's day assembly. We feel to ensure our students' safety and our veterans, that is best not to have an in-person program this year. We will be celebrating veterans and those that served our nation in our classrooms and by joining a live stream of the wreath-laying ceremony at the Arlington National Cemetery on November 11th at 10:00 AM.

Attention Parents: We regret to inform you that we have a positive case of COVID-19 in our first-grade classroom. Due to this fact, the first grade will be on a 14-day quarantine. THIS QUARANTINE IS FOR FIRST GRADE STUDENTS ONLY. This quarantine will carry us into the Thanksgiving break, and students will return to school on November 30th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. These actions must be taken to ensure our students' safety. We have notified all parents who have quarantined students. If you have not been notified, your student is not affected. Instruction for this class will consist of packets. These packets will be available on Tuesday, November 10th, and again on Monday, November 16th. If students have a sibling, we can send the packet home with them, or you can pick it up at your convenience these days. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this situation. If you have any questions, please call the office.

Attention Parents: By now, traditional students should have received and brought home report cards. Virtual Students received a progress report in their school email today. Remember that grades are assigned at the end of the semester. The nine weeks grade is a snapshot of the scores at that time. There is plenty of time to bring them up if necessary.

https://5il.co/l3ts Attention parents: Today we were notified of our first COVID-19 positive cases here at Shady Point Schools. As per our school policies and procedures we initiated contact tracing and identified the students who were possibly exposed. Students’ parents were then notified, and they were sent home where they will remain in quarantine for 14 days. Their 14-day window started on Tuesday and will end on September 29th. September 29th will be the first day they can return to school. There was some confusion about testing and returning to school. We had originally hoped that students who received a negative test be released from quarantine early. Upon receiving further guidance from the health Department students must remain in quarantine for 14 days even if they have received a negative COVID-19 test. I apologize for the confusion our earlier message may have caused. We will continue to monitor our students and our staff for any COVID-19 related symptoms. Also, we will continue to thoroughly clean and disinfect all campus facilities throughout the day ensuring that our students have a safe environment here at school. All schoolwork for students who have been sent home for quarantine will be as follows. • Students in grades PK-2 were sent home with their work for the next week. • Students in grades 3-8 will have a packet ready for pickup on Friday afternoon. These students will be • Additional packets will be available next Thursday (9/24) for the following week. Thank you for your patience and diligence with this issue. If you have any questions, please call the office at 918-963-2595

Well, the first week in over, and your children were amazing. We were not sure how this week would go, but it went great. We had runners, cryers, and a few sad faces as they got here. But most of them were smiling by the time the day was over. A big thanks go out to the faculty and staff for making this week as smooth as it was. Everybody is tired and need a rest before we do it again next week.
