SCHOOL REOPENING PLANS UPDATE 2020-21

DISTANCE LEARNING STUDENTS
Those parents that have selected distance learning for their children will be receiving a phone call from the building principal this week to set up a phone interview to discuss the distance learning model and framework for 2020-21.

The Quapaw Board of Education has changed the start date for staff professional development and the start of school to the following dates:
Staff Development: August 17-21 (5 Days)
First Day of School for Students: Monday, August 24
We will keep you posted on further developments. 
 School activities will proceed as planned with the official start for school on Monday, August 24.





For the past 8 weeks Quapaw Public Schools have been working on plans and procedures for the 2020-21 school year. We want to provide you with a glimpse of how learning will look different at Quapaw Public Schools during the 2020-21 school year. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PcQwcMN5cW4Fpp3B3qyeilkyTIvA3QTy/view?usp=sharing



Survey for Virtual-Distance Learning 2020-21.
The goal of Quapaw Public Schools is to offer two types of programs for students during the 2020-21 school year.  One is a traditional schedule. Classes will take place on campus. The second program we will offer is a virtual learning environment outside the school facilities to help our students and families who may be dealing with health issues and other concerns. If you are interested in the virtual learning program for your child, please fill out the survey that can be found on the school Facebook page. 
Information on the program can be found on the Reopening Plan.

Here are a few reminders as we deal with the possibility of the COVID-19 virus.

Healthy Habits for Dealing with COVID-19
Clean your hands often.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing, or having been in a public place.
If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
To the extent possible, avoid touching high-touch surfaces in public places – elevator buttons, door handles, handrails, handshaking with people, etc. 
Use a tissue or your sleeve to cover your hand or finger if you must touch something.
Wash your hands after touching surfaces in public places.
Avoid touching your face, nose, eyes, etc.
Clean and disinfect your home to remove germs: practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces (for example: tables, doorknobs, light switches, handles, desks, toilets, faucets, sinks & cell phones).
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
