Health department flu vaccine clinics begin 10/2/2017

posted Sep 21, 2017, 10:37 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Sep 21, 2017, 10:46 AM ]


The Washington County Health Department's seasonal influenza vaccination clinics will begin Oct. 2, 2017. The department recommends flu vaccination each year for everyone 6 months of age and older.

Vaccinations will be scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays — by appointment only — at the health department offices at 5121 S.E. Jacquelyn Lane in Bartlesville. Their phone number is 918-335-3005.

Flu season usually starts in September or October and runs through April or May. 

“It takes about two weeks after vaccination to become fully protected so it is important for everyone in your family to be vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Larry Bergner, administrative director for the Washington County Health Department. “Protection from the flu vaccine lasts about six months, so people vaccinated in October should be protected through April of next year.”

The county health department will provide flu vaccine using the following fee schedule:
  • All individuals with health insurance should bring their card. Their insurance company will be billed for the vaccine and an administration fee.
  • Individuals who have no health insurance, whose health insurance does not cover flu vaccine, who are eligible for SoonerCare, or children 18 years of age and younger who are Native American or Alaskan natives may receive their vaccine at no charge.
  • All others will be charged a fee of $25 to cover the cost of the flu vaccine and the cost of administering the vaccine.
SoonerCare, Medicare, all private health insurance, cash, checks, or credit cards as payment for flu vaccine will be accepted.

For more information, call 918-335-3005.

Olsen, Cochran, Linzy, and Covell named National Merit Semifinalists

posted Sep 14, 2017, 10:23 AM by Granger Meador   [ updated Sep 14, 2017, 10:23 AM ]

The National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced that four Bartlesville High School seniors have been named Semifinalists in the 63rd annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Greta Olsen, Lukas Cochran, Hannah Linzy, and Sarah Covell are among the approximately 16,000 Semifinalists nationwide who have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million that will be offered next spring.

Commended Students will be announced later this month. About 50,000 of the 1.6 million entrants in the program are chosen for recognition as either a Commended Student or as a Semifinalist. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship® award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. About 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar® title.

BHS Junior Cassie Harding Crowned Miss Delaware County's Outstanding Teen

posted Sep 7, 2017, 11:32 AM by Tina Steele   [ updated Sep 7, 2017, 11:33 AM ]

Cassie Harding, a junior at Bartlesville High School, was crowned Miss Delaware County's Outstanding Teen on September 2, 2017. In early June 2018 Cassie will compete at the Miss Oklahoma Outstanding Teen pageant. This will be Cassie's second year to compete at the state level. She will be focusing on her platform "Fill Their Plate," to educate others about childhood hunger. Cassie is the daughter of David and Melinda Harding.

The Delaware County event is part of the Miss America competition series. Each local, state and national event includes competition in talent, evening wear, interview and physical fitness in a swimsuit. Every Miss America state/local titleholder selects a platform issue of importance to her and to society, and spends her year of service advocating the issue before media, business people, public officials, civic and charitable groups, and others.

Students benefit at Bartlesville High School summer camps

posted Aug 31, 2017, 5:01 PM by Tina Steele   [ updated Aug 31, 2017, 5:01 PM ]

Several different camps were held in the summer of 2017 for students at Bartlesville High School. One of the camps was funded by the local group Bartlesville Education Promise, offering several Summer Institute courses for almost fifty students. The school's Parent Support Group funded an afternoon camp for incoming freshmen.


Over two hundred incoming freshmen attended Bruin Camp on the afternoon of August 4, 2017 at Bartlesville High School’s Freshman Academy.  The event featured a scavenger hunt, school spirit session, and panel discussion with former BHS students to help the students with the transition from middle school to high school. The students were treated to Jared Frozen Custard after the event. Many parents chose to stay so that their student could check out a Chromebook to use at school and at home. That flood of students for the new checkout process dragged it out for some time, but in the end over 100 very patient parents and students left the building with a Chromebook in a nice Bruin case in an early start for the district's bond-funded Student Computing Initiative.


Another program was the BHS Summer Institute, with several different courses offered for only a $10 registration fee. The program was made possible by the support of Bartlesville Education Promise, a nonprofit group of concerned citizens who want to see Bartlesville schoolchildren continue to succeed. Donations to the group are accepted through the Bartlesville Community Foundation. Superintendent of Schools Chuck McCauley has said Bartlesville Education Promise offers represents the spirit of the community in helping students succeed.


High School Fundamentals served 18 incoming freshmen from July 10-28. Freshman Academy teachers Amanda Hancock, Diana Johnson, Theresa Keller, and Bill McQueen taught foundation skills for successful organization and communication to the incoming high schoolers.


ACT Test Prep was offered June 5-8 by BHS faculty members Warren Neff and Jen Ward. It helped two dozen students prepare for the ACT assessment. There were two days focusing on English/Reading and two days focusing on Math. Students who attended were encouraged to register for the ACT given that week.


From July 10-21 BHS teacher Mandy Lumbley offered Prep for Accelerated English - Path to AP, guiding seven students through their summer reading project via class discussion, notes, and independent work time. In addition, the course provided a foundation in the skills for successful analysis, argument, annotation, and synthesis of text in all major genres.


The district appreciates the support of its staff members, parents, and community partners in providing students with these summer learning opportunities.
