Good Morning, Folks! I am all but certain that school will be in session tomorrow. Next week doesn't look as certain, but Oklahoma weather can turn on a dime, so we'll wait and see what it looks like on Sunday going in to Monday. We will be making sure that our students are going home with their devices tomorrow. If we have to miss school, the days we miss will be virtual learning days. I just want to give you a chance to think about child care if we have to be out for a couple days or more. Even when we are out, if you call and leave a message, the voice recording will be sent to our email inboxes, and we'll be able to get back to you and address the problem. If you find yourself in need of any winter clothing such as coats, hats, gloves, etc. for your kids, please send me (Tim Simpson), your building principal, or your child's teacher a text message, an email, or a voice message so that we can help. It's going to get very cold very soon. Please let us know if there is anything else that we might be able to help you with if needed. I hope the rest of your day goes well.

Get you chore lists ready, moms and dads. There are always things to pickup, floors to sweep and mop, dishes to be done and laundry to be folded and put away! Wynnewood Schools will be closed again tomorrow because of the potentially hazardous driving conditions. Make use of the free labor before they move out. Y'all stay warm and safe.

Because of very hazardous road conditions in town as well as our rural roads, Wynnewood Public Schools will be closed today and all school activities are canceled. This is NOT a virtual day. No assignments will be given. It is just considered an inclement weather day. Stay safe.

Good morning, Folks, There seems to be a rumor going around that we are closing the elementary school down due to COVID-19 related issues. That is not true. We have some students and staff that have tested positive over the past few weeks, and we have quarantined some students due to contact tracing. Building and district wide we have had many more students out either in isolation or quarantine than we currently do right now. I don't have our current numbers available right now, but I will post them tomorrow. We are seeing some of the effects from Thanksgiving break, but as of now, we see no reason to shut down any of our buildings or facilities. Have a great day!

Good Morning! I apologize for not communicating much lately. My wife and I both tested positive for COVID-19 a few weeks ago, and I didn't do a very good job of keeping up with everything. My girls in the office and our District staff, however, did a wonderful job with the day-to-day operations. It's humbling to realize just how expendable I really am. Lol. It's also very comforting and gratifying to know that we have such capable and trustworthy people working in our District. Here are our latest COVID-19 numbers: ES - 2 positive cases (4th graders) and 29 in quarantine as a result of contact tracing for various reasons. MS - 1 positive case (6th grader) and 30 in quarantine as a result of contact tracing for various reasons. HS - 1 positive case (11th grader) and 2 in quarantine as a result of contact tracing for various reasons. I'd like to close this message by taking a moment to brag on our parents. I made 32 phone calls yesterday afternoon to inform parents in each of our buildings that their son or daughter would have to begin quarantining based on investigations performed by the health department. Not a single parent responded negatively or argued the mandate. Everyone was kind and understanding. I really cannot begin to describe how grateful we are to work with parents and a community who work so hard to show us patience and grace. We know the stress and inconvenience that these issues cause you. We love you guys and our kids. Thank you for working with us and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Tim Simpson, Supt.

We have no new COVID-19 cases to report today. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Although I have not received official notification from the health department, I have been informed that we have an elementary school aide currently in isolation from testing positive for COVID-19. From the information I have received, contact tracing will be limited to individuals she had close contact with last weekend. I have been told that contact tracing will not involve the school district. I have also received notification (not from the health dept.) that an elementary school custodian tested positive. With regard to our student population, we currently have no active cases in any school.

Good Afternoon, Folks, As of the end of the school day today, we have no new cases to report. I hope everyone has a great evening!

As far as confirmed positive cases are concerned, last week was a much better week. We only had one reported case--one 7th grade boy. We do, however, have some information coming to you soon regarding changes to our quarantining policy in order to comply with state statute and state and local health department guidelines.

I had a very nice parent call me today and ask me if we have had any new cases of COVID-19 show up this week because she hadn't seen an update since last week. We haven't (knock wood), but I think I will update everyone at the end of each day either way, at least for a while anyway. Have a great night, folks.

Good Morning, I want to update you on a few more positive cases that have been reported to us today: One 11th grade female who is also a softball player (she's actually been in quarantine since last Sunday). One 12th grade male who is also a football player. One 7th grade male who is also a football player. One elementary school teacher's aide who has not worked with any children this year and has worn a mask since day one of school starting. I know these updates can cause anxiety for people. In my opinion, we will see cases every week for the indefinite future. I don't believe it's any different, though, in school districts throughout the country that are offering a traditional learning option. Hang in there. We'll get through this together.
