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.

Here is the complete announcement: https://5il.co/e6zw Attention Parents: Yesterday, the Oklahoma State Board of Education unanimously approved an order that implements a continuous learning model to complete the 2019-20 school year for Oklahoma students. This brings up an important question, “What does this mean and what do I do with my children for the next eight weeks?”. The school campus will be closed to students. Instruction will continue just not in the traditional sense we are accustomed to. School as we know it is changing and we are working on how it will look. Rest assured we will be working with your children and teaching them. We are not going to close the doors and lay all the burden of instruction on the parents. However, we will need your help in this process. We have programs and equipment in place to accomplish learning at a distance on a smaller scale. We will be working on expanding this to all our students over the next couple of weeks. We are prepared to make these changes and we will do it the correct way with our individual student's needs in mind. As we work through all the details over the next week, we expect to narrow down all the things that are changing and give more guidance on how this process will work. The classroom teachers and the sponsors will be your primary contact through all this. They should have already reached out to you and provided their contact info. If you have questions about this, call the office. The child nutrition program will continue until May. We will be providing grab and go/delivery services Monday through Wednesday. Wednesday’s lunch will contain food and snacks for Thursday and Friday as well. This will allow a mixture of hot and packaged lunches for the students. If you need to change your lunch status and receive or choose to no longer receive, let your classroom teacher or sponsor know. How can you as a parent help? • Fill out the survey that will be posted tomorrow. It will assess your material and technological needs. • Be prepared to spend a little time each day helping our teachers. • Be patient I am looking at this as an opportunity to develop a new learning model that is direct, focused, and individually tailored to each child. As an educator, this is both an exciting and terrifying time. Thank you for being a member of the Warrior family. With patience, communication, and hard work, we will overcome any obstacles you may have and together we will teach our students.
Attention Parents: Change in food delivery As an ongoing process to make this delivery/pickup system more effective, today we will be providing food for the remainder of the week. The two bags will contain three meals, three breakfasts, three juices, and three milks. Thank you for working with us on this.
A big thanks goes out to all the staff and volunteers that helped today. It takes a lot of people to feed and deliver that many meals. Because of you all, a lot of students had a good meal today.
For today all pickup meals will be at the office door. Please do not get out of the vehicle. A staff member will come to greet you and bring your meals out.
Attention Parents: Shady Point Schools will be providing meals for its students during the shutdown. We are currently working out the logistics of what to serve and how/when to serve it. All meals must be picked up, but we are looking at ways to deliver them also. I need parents to complete the following survey to determine what is the best delivery method for your children. We will follow up if more information is needed, but this will give us an idea of how many meals to plan for and deliver. https://forms.gle/QUcj8YGK9SWzV5af8
