Dear Red Oak Family, Yesterday we learned that Oklahoma students will not return to the classroom for the remainder of the current school year, following a vote by the State Board of Education. Instead, districts, including Red Oak, will implement continuous learning plans that will allow students to complete the school year at home. State education and health officials believe this move will help our state fight the spread of COVID-19. We are sharing this information with you now so you can prepare accordingly for your family. We understand this change is in the best interest of everyone’s health, which is our greatest priority as a district. The state board’s vote also means that all extracurricular and special events will be canceled or postponed as well. Making these difficult decisions, we believe, is simply the right thing to do for our students, staff, and our community. That being said, we WILL have some form of senior graduation! We have been discussing ways to break it up numbers wise to comply with guidelines set forth. We will be meeting with senior officers next week in small groups or via teleconference to discuss ideas such as parking lot graduation, senior videos/DVD’s, live streaming, and/or parade style graduation. Prom can be postponed indefinitely…our current prom rules allow for “dates” to attend until they reach the age of 21, so a post graduate is able to attend a prom at a later date. Do to travel restrictions, senior trip looks as if it may not happen. We will be in discussion with our auditor on how to proceed with the funds that were raised. There is good news: Red Oak is developing a plan to ensure your child will continue to have opportunities to learn and grow academically, especially with parental support. Because we are unable to safely gather together, these lessons will be delivered and communicated via several ways to fit your needs. Teachers will meet next week to choose the best delivery method based on their students. Forms of this may be through Google classroom, YouTube, Zoom, emails, and packets. We have a great staff that has already been working to contribute to this continuous learning plan. We appreciate their hard work, as well as our support staff who has cleaned, scrubbed, sanitized, etc. Our food service has worked hard to get everything in place for meal service which has already begun. Many state mandates have been waived such as testing, attendance, and certain curriculum mandates. We are still waiting on clarification if our last day will be May 5, or May 8. Please continue to follow the CDC guidelines to protect yourself and your family. We will continue to communicate through our website, school Facebook page, Twitter, Remind, and via telephone. We are a community that sticks together in challenging times. As soon as we identify our next steps or gain more information we will share them with you. Let’s maintain our EAGLE pride in this unprecedented time! Sincerely, Bryan Deatherage Superintendent
REMINDER: A combination breakfast/lunch for children 18 and under will be available for pickup at the north door of the cafeteria beginning tomorrow from 11:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Dear Parents and Families, You have likely seen a lot of recent media attention on the coronavirus. Please know that Red Oak Public Schools is monitoring the situation daily and installing additional measures to maintain a clean and healthy environment for our students and staff. There are things you can do at home as well. The following information is provided to help prevent the transmission and spread of coronavirus. The virus, like many other illnesses including the flu, is spread between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet) via coughing or sneezing. The same good health habits that prevent other viruses like the flu, also prevent the spread of coronavirus and decrease the risk of getting sick: Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, with 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available. Cough into a tissue or your elbow (not your hand), then throw tissue away and wash your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid contact with people who are sick and stay home when you are sick. Keep students home if they are running a temperature, they report not feeling well, or appear weak or ill. Consult your healthcare provider if you or your child has health conditions that put you at increased risk. Additional guidance provided to districts from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on prevention, planning, and how to respond to coronavirus can be found on the CDC website. If you have a trip planned for spring break out of the country, please see the following guidance issued by the State Department of Education: Individuals returning from travel in any Level 2 or 3 country as determined by the CDC should self-quarantine for a period of two weeks. This includes students and employees. If you are planning a spring break trip out of the country, please notify your principal or supervisor so a discussion can take place on whether returning to school immediately is the right course of action. We all have a role to play in keeping students, staff, and families healthy and safe. You can help by staying informed, practicing good hygiene, and staying home or keeping children home if they have been running a fever or are exhibiting signs of a fever. We are committed to keeping you informed and working with you to keep our school community safe. Sincerely, Red Oak Public Schools Administration
