New Activity Travel Policy


QUAPAW PUBLIC SCHOOLS TRAVEL TO ACTIVITIES

January 14, 2019

Adopted by Board of Education

 

All team members and managers traveling under the supervision of the coach and/or sponsor are to go and return from out of town games/activities by transportation supplied by the school. Players (students) shall not drive to any activity they are participating in.

 

Students involved in supporting the team in an organized group will travel under the supervision of the sponsor when transported in school vehicles.

 

Regardless of how students travel to a game, their actions and conduct are the business of the school and proper discipline will be taken when conduct is improper. It is not the intention of the school to restrict the freedom or privileges of students, but the school feels a duty for the safety of its students and the reputation of the school.

 

Students riding the bus to an activity are expected to return on the bus, except when personally requested by the parent or legal guardian to return with them and sign the sign out sheet provided by the coach or sponsor. If the student is to ride home with anyone else such as grandparent or any other responsible adult, the parent or legal guardian must submit to the principal a written request prior to the activity and that person must sign the sign out sheet provided by the coach or sponsor.  The principal will notify the coach or sponsor of the approval.

 

For school activities, the participating students must ride school-arranged transportation only. If a student participates in the activity, he/she must travel to and from the activity with the group. Release from this will be only to parents or legal guardian and only with prior approval of sponsor and/or the principal. 



Parents, please be sure to check your child’s book bag. Report cards went home on Friday . Thank you for being a great part of our school!


High School Parents:

We are pleased to announce that all high school students will be assigned a Chromebook for the 2019 Spring Semester.  A policy we are adding for high school Chromebook use is the ability for students to take their Chromebooks home with them.  Students will have to pay a $25 usage fee each year to be able to take their Chromebook home with them at the end of the day.  The fee can be paid at the high school office.  

If you have questions regarding the Chromebooks, please contact Mrs. Bacon at 918-674-2474.



A big thank you to the Quapaw Nation for the new gym scoreboards and installation.
Four Quapaw High School Band students were selected to participate in the Mid America All Star Marching Band. The MAASMB is a group made up of students selected from high schools in SE Kansas, SW Missouri, and NE Oklahoma who are brought together to form a marching band. They will rehearse three times together before traveling over spring break to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in downtown Chicago.   From left to right, Rachel Clonts, Abby Rogers, Madison Barnett, and Jenni Jennings.

Quapaw Elementary School AR Party Fun!
