Waukomis Public Schools has a Board Meeting scheduled for this evening. We ask that all patrons please stay home and join the meeting via teleconference per CDC regulations. The following message will have the information to join the meeting.
Distance Learning Plan for Waukomis Middle and Elementary School Waukomis Middle and Elementary School will begin our Distance Learning Plan on Monday, April 6. We will offer two different plans: an online curriculum plan or a curriculum packet. Students and parents will be contacted by a teacher to inform you about each teachers online learning education to be offered. We understand that online education is not an option for all students so we have created an option that would accommodate for all Middle School and Elementary students. Every student from Pre-K to 8th grades will be offered a curriculum packet that can be picked up in front of the elementary on Monday, April 6 from 8:00-12:00. All you have to do is drive up and tell a staff member what grade your child is in and they will bring the packet to your car. Curriculum packets will contain two weeks of work. On April 20, from 8:00-12:00, you would bring back the packet and pick up a new one. You can have another party pick up your packet just call the school. We realize this is a very stressful time, and distance learning is not an ideal situation for our students. However, I feel the parental support from our parents will overcome these circumstances. We love and miss your children very much. If you have any questions please feel free to call me. Thank You Allen Hicks 580-541-4866 580-758-3264
Waukomis Public Schools has a Special Board Meeting scheduled for this evening. We ask that all patrons please stay home and join the meeting via teleconference per CDC regulations. The following message will have the information to join the meeting.
Dear Parent: Our community, state, and nation are facing unprecedented challenges due to COVID-19. Life has changed for everyone and we are all working together to deal with these changes. Disruption and change are hard for everyone but can be especially difficult for children. It is Waukomis Public Schools’ goal to not only provide essential learning opportunities for your children, but also provide structure and routine surrounding those learning moments. We know there will be challenges to overcome, but we are looking forward to working alongside you in overcoming these challenges and provide your child/children a loving and caring continuous learning experience. You may be wondering how we will do it? First of all, we will find out what technology and support you have at home. Then, we will provide whatever support we can add. If technology is not available, we will provide learning packets and guidance over the phone. Your child’s teacher is working hard to meet not only your child’s educational needs, but all of the children under his/her care. It is very important to us that every child receives the same learning opportunities, so whether the instruction is given through the internet, through textbook instruction, paper packets, or by phone, it is our desire to keep students safe while providing learning opportunities that are both equal and worthwhile. This is new for all of us, so we sincerely ask for your feedback and help as we complete these final weeks of school. If you have questions at any time about our plans, please email myself, Matt Cue, or Allen Hicks at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com. Sincerely, Shawn Tennyson Superintendent Waukomis Public Schools
We will still offer the delivery service during the free breakfast and lunch program.
Great news! We will start serving hot lunches on Monday 30th. We will have to adjust our lunch and breakfast pickup time to 10-11:30 starting on Monday. Thank you
Senior Ads for Yearbook: We still want your senior ads in our yearbook. If you wish to purchase a senior ad, we can accept photos and text through e-mail. E-mail scanned photos and senior photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment will have to be mailed to the school at P.O. Box 729, Waukomis, OK 73773. With the uncertainty of our current situation, we prefer that content be delivered to us digitally. We don't know how we can return photos in paper form to their rightful owners.
YEARBOOK UPDATE: As we all adapt to change, one thing that remains constant is the yearbook tradition of documenting the history of our students and capturing their school year forever. We are pleased to announce that the Waukomis High School yearbook adviser and staff are working hard to complete the yearbook and make sure it is printed. Since copies of the yearbook are limited and school buildings have closed, we ask that you please order your yearbook online as soon as possible at https://www.jostens.com/apps/store/productBrowse/1046701/Waukomis-High-School/2020-Yearbook/2020011604153758351/CATALOG_SHOP/ If ordering online is not an option, please refer to the WAUKOMIS YEARBOOK Facebook page for info.
WAUKOMIS YEARBOOK NEEDS PHOTOS: We need your help gathering photos to complete our yearbook. We are asking you to send us your printable photos to document what your kids are doing while we all shelter for safety, photos from the school year, photos from field trips, or photos from activities. We NEED pictures from spring activities that had games prior to spring break. Specifically, we need baseball, high school slow pitch, and middle school slow pitch photos. We have NO action photos of these sports, nor group photos of the teams. PLEASE, submit your photos from phones or cameras online at https://www.replayit.com/#/mosaic or on the ReplayIt app, which can be downloaded from the app store. You can also e-mail photos in "actual size" format to email@example.com. Please share this with whoever you know who may have photos so that we can make sure that these sports are represented in our book.
If you have not completed the survey yet, please put all your children's names (all in your household) under student name. If you have already completed, do not worry about it. Thank you!
Please fill out the following survey in reference to our future distant learning/internet availability. Thank you! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdmC0oP41okFu1nMepxFM3wTdgnX_ET8oqr6xIyf36iui1V7w/viewform?usp=sf_link
March 25 Dear Waukomis family: Today, 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 Waukomis, 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 activities 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, our staff and our community. We do have good news: Waukomis is developing a plan to ensure your child will continue to have opportunities to learn and to grow academically, especially with parental support. Because we are unable to safely gather together, these lessons and activities will primarily be delivered and communicated in the best possible ways. As you can imagine, this is a significant transition for our students and our teachers. Waukomis will spend the next week planning for this effort and will share details with your family as soon as they are available. Thank you to all the teachers that have already began preparing unique and creative opportunities to communicate with their students. Teachers will be meeting with their building principals in the near future to discuss further possibilities and create a continuous education plan for the students of Waukomis. For students, it likely will be sad and disappointing to receive confirmation that school as they know it will not resume this year. Please give them a safe place to express their feelings and to vent about the changes in their life. For our seniors and their parents, we know it is an especially difficult time. We will do everything possible to ensure their efforts are recognized and celebrated in special and unique ways. This is an unfair situation, but please reassure them that it does not diminish their achievements. In fact, it will become one more example of how they demonstrated their strength as Chiefs. We have posted numerous resources on our website, including information about free breakfasts and lunches for students under the age of 18, which will continue, as well as answers to frequently asked questions regarding the school closure. You can find these details and more by visiting www.waukomis.k12.ok.us. The site also includes recommendations from the CDC about protecting your health and the health of your loved ones. We ask you to please follow their advice by: (1) washing your hands regularly; (2) staying at home, if you can; and (3) practicing social distancing of at least six feet from others. This is an unprecedented situation, and it has required an unprecedented response. We can still take care of Waukomis students, though. This is a community that sticks together in challenging times, and we know this experience will be no different. As soon as we identify our next steps, we will share them with you. Please stay safe. As always, we appreciate your support of Waukomis Public Schools. Sincerely, Shawn Tennyson Superintendent

Good evening. This is an important message for Waukomis families. This afternoon, the state Board of Education voted to close all Oklahoma schools, effective immediately, until at least April 6 in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19. This means, following spring break, Waukomis students will not return to school for at least two weeks, and possibly longer, if health officials deem it necessary. Employees will receive information about their responsibilities during the school closure over the next few days. For more information about COVID-19 and for answers to questions about the school closure, please visit our website at www.waukomis.k12.ok.us. Again, there will be no school for Waukomis students until at least April 6. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. Please be safe and have a wonderful evening.

Waukomis Yearbook would like to thank those who contributed the remaining funds to our Donors Choose project, which will provide students with a new Canon - EOS Rebel T7 DSLR Camera with EF-S 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm Lenses, valued at $594. Thank you so much to Mandy Robinson, Jill Helmer, Jenny Jones, and anonymous donors who tripled donations for your generosity.
Hello friends of Waukomis Yearbook, I want to make sure my students have what they need to succeed, so I've created a classroom project request through DonorsChoose.org. Right now, any contribution you make to my project will be tripled by an anonymous donor. This will turn a $10 donation into a $30 donation. Your donation will brighten my students' school year, and you'll get heartfelt thank-yous from my class and photos of your gift in action. $118 is all we have left to make this happen. Here's my classroom request: DSLR Camera for Desktop Publishing, Yearbook, and Journalism at https://www.donorschoose.org/project/dslr-camera-for-desktop-publishing-year/4448941/ To have your donation matched 3x, just make a contribution on that project page -- donations will be matched automatically, but only while funding lasts. If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. My students and I greatly appreciate your support. Jason Dykstra

Dear parents, Unfortunately the budget has not been passed yet by the state. Waukomis will not have school Monday April 2nd. The staff is taking an advocacy day to the capitol. After Monday we will be playing it by ear for day to day happenings. If there is no school Tuesday the 3rd, the Waukomis School Board has passed a resolution for the school to continue certain school activities, one such activity is the ACT test. The juniors will need to report to school on Tuesday the 3rd at 8:00 am to take the ACT even if school is still not in session. Please keep your phone, the app, and social media on to be able to stay up to date with the latest information from the school. We will continue to update as soon as we learn new information.
