Wynnewood High School Summer Drivers Ed Info!
Community engagement and input is an important resource regarding the implementation of the District's ARP/ESSER III plan and budget. We are holding a community engagement meeting in the high school library at 6:30pm or immediately following the regular school board meeting on Thursday, April 14, 2022 to discuss and receive input regarding the District’s ARP/ESSER III plan and budget for the 2022-2023 school year.
Due to the high probability of hazardous road conditions tomorrow morning, Wynnewood Public Schools will be closed and will remain in distance/virtual learning Friday, February 24th.
Good afternoon, folks,
After watching the local weather maps and models predict the effect of the upcoming weather systems and receiving information from the National Weather Center in Norman, Wynnewood Public Schools will be closed Wednesday through Friday. All school related activities and practices are canceled through Friday. These will be virtual/distance learning days, which means our students have been sent home with assignments from each of their teachers. Students will have instructions and information on how to reach their teachers if they need any help with any of their work over the next three days. If you need to reach a principal or someone at the central office, please call and leave a message, and it will be forwarded to that individual’s cell phone. Your phone call will be returned as soon as possible. With the windchill, it is going to get bitterly cold over the next few days. If you need warm clothing for anyone in your household, please call a principal or me, and we will do our best to provide what you need. Check on your neighbors, especially if they are elderly. Be safe, folks.
Superintendent, Wynnewood Public Schools
Basketball Homecoming! 🏀🏀🏀
No excuses not to send that Valentine something sweet! ❤
Please vote yes for this important NON-TAX RAISING bond issue on Tuesday, February 8th. Your support of our students and our school district is ALWAYS appreciated!
It might be cold outside, but around our school district things start heating up this time of year. Our basketball teams are making their push toward playoffs; spring sports are working hard behind the scenes preparing for the upcoming season; our Ag students are busy taking care of and showing their livestock; band and academic meets are in full swing; and our teachers and students are working hard in their classrooms! The COVID Omicron variant is trying to take us down, but by each of us practicing some common-sense safety measures sprinkled with some good old-fashioned grit and resilience, we’ll come through this challenge stronger than ever. Life has a way of knocking us to our knees every now and then, but it never stops moving forward and neither should we. Five years ago, our Wynnewood citizens voted for the safety and welfare of our communities’ children by passing a $560,000 transportation bond issue that allowed the school district to replace all of its route buses. A renewal of that bond will be on the ballot and up for approval on the February 8th election. An important piece to this election is that THERE IS NO PROJECTED TAX INCREASE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS BOND ISSUE. We have worked hard to be transparent and good stewards of tax payer money, and we hope that you have been able to see all the improvements to our programs, buildings, and facilities. We also hope you see how hard we are working to take care of all the equipment and resources that we already have.
Since this is a renewal of the bond issue passed five years ago, this current bond issue is also for $560,000. With this particular bond, the money it generates can only be spent in two different areas:
1. Technology for students and teachers.
2. Vehicles used to transport students.
When you go to the polls on Tuesday, February 8th, the $560,000 bond issue will be separated into two different propositions. Proposition 1 is for technology totaling $210,000. These funds will be used to replace outdated and unusable computers in the elementary school computer lab and in our secondary computer lab at the high school. Both of those labs are critically needed for student use. Those funds will also be used to replace broken or unrepairable student Chromebooks as well as outdated Smartboard technology across the district. The old Smartboard projectors and screens will be replaced with single monitor SmartTV technology.
Proposition 2 is for student transportation totaling $350,000. These funds will be used to replace two activity buses that are over 13 years old with over 100,000 miles. These buses are on the road almost every day of the week throughout the entire year, including summer. Those funds are also desperately needed to replace our two 14 passenger student activity vans that are both over 14 years old with over 140,000 miles.
The equipment and vehicles that we need to purchase with the money from this bond issue are used almost every single day that school is in session. The technology will help keep us up to speed with the digital demands that come with educating students in the 21st century, and the vehicles will allow us to continue to transport our students safely. We need a 60% majority to pass this bond issue, so on February 8, 2022, please come out and VOTE YES to both propositions. Also remember that voting yes and passing both propositions will not raise your taxes a single penny. As a city, we might argue politics and fuss about the price of gas and electricity, but this community never fails to support its children and school district, and that is not something that every community can say. If you have any questions about the bond issue or the propositions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
or call me at 405-665-2004 or just stop by the office. #OneTownOneTribe
Good eveining, Wynnewood Public Schools' Families:

Thank you.

Wynnewood schools is strongly considering dividing the overflow parking area south of the middle school into two separate garden areas. One to be used as a district garden and the other to be used as a community garden. We would assign garden plots to residents who would like to grow their own vegetables, berries, and/or flowers. There would be a water supply and tools available. There are many, many details to work out, but before we move forward, we need to make sure there is enough community interest and support to justify the project. As a Wynnewood resident, is this something you would like to see in our community?
Just a reminder that we are out of school Monday for a Professional Day!
