**IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR OUR INCOMING PRESCHOOLERS** Wynnewood Public Schools has been afforded a wonderful opportunity for our incoming preschoolers. At no charge to our district or our families, we are able to offer our preschool students the chance to participate in the Waterford Upstart school readiness program. Those who register for the program will receive a laptop computer, the Upstart software, internet service (if necessary), and a personal Upstart program coach. Not only does the program build academic skills, but on average, students who complete the program enter kindergarten reading at almost a first grade level!. Please visit our website for much more information. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Superintendent Tim Simpson at 405-665-2004. Visit waterfordupstart.org/register to reserve your child’s spot or call 888-982-9898. Please take advantage of this great opportunity! Have a great day!
Good morning! 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?
Reminder- Due to the extreme weather in February, we have lost 2 snow days. School will be in session this Friday, April 23rd and Friday, May 7th. May 14th is still a snow day.

Good Afternoon! Wynnewood schools will continue with virtual learning for the remainder of the week and will start back in person on Monday, February 22nd. Please do not hesitate to reach out to a teacher, your building principal, or me if you have any questions or needs. Please be careful and stay safe.
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.
Reminder- Wednesday, January 27th is a late start day!
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.
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.
