From our Wynnewood School family to yours, Merry Christmas and Happy Festivus, and don't forget rule #4, kids: Festivus isn't over until the head of the household gets pinned.
Let's bring out those Ugly Sweaters!
Due to COVID-19 related issues, there will be no high school girls basketball game tonight. JV Boys will play at 5:00 pm and Varsity boys at 6:30 pm.
Savage & Lady Savage Basketball!
Tuesday Night Basketball!
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!
Basketball tonight in Wynnewood!! Come out and support your Savages and Lady Savages!
Come out and support your Lady Savages and Savages tonight!!
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.
Good evening, Due to the chance of hazardous driving conditions tomorrow morning, Tuesday will be a virtual learning day. Staff and students will not report to school/work. We will still have our regularly scheduled virtual day on Wednesday, Coaches will be reach out to their players regarding practices/events scheduled for tomorrow and Wednesday. Have a great night and stay safe.
If you have a few extra minutes this afternoon at 4:30pm, please give us a look as we are proud to offer live streaming of today's varsity academic meet vs Elmore City. This is a great opportunity for friends, family, and community members to watch an event they might not normally get to see in person.

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.
