This is Superintendent Bryan Frazier. There has been much legislative activity over the past week. As we approach the deadline to the teacher walkout I want to give our patrons updated information and also let you know the plans for the week ahead. There was historic legislation passed this week, however, there are still some details that are yet to be worked out and questions regarding some of the revenue funding that was repealed after the passage of the bills. Due to these uncertainties the teacher walkout is still in effect.
In order for our parents and community members to plan for the week ahead the decision was made to suspend classes for all of next week. Schools will be closed Monday April 2nd – Friday April 6th. Our hope is that by notifying you now it will allow you to time to make the arrangements needed due to the school closure. If there are legislative measures that address the areas of uncertainty we could resume class prior to the week’s end. If this happens, we will notify you within 24 hours of school reconvening.
Since school will be closed Monday – Friday next week we have been working diligently with the Ministerial Alliance to ensure our students are fed during that time. Operation Lunchbox will provide a lunch and a take home snack. You may pick them up at the following locations: Cedar Point, Claremore Nazarene, Destiny Life, Faith Baptist, First Baptist, First Christian, First United Methodist, Memorial Heights Baptist, St. Andrews United Methodist, and The Vessel from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM daily.
Addresses and contact information for these locations will be sent to the emails we have on file and posted on our web-site.
We appreciate the support you have shown public education. We will keep you updated as progress is made and information is available.
