Wildcat Staff Supporting Mrs. Bacon




Quapaw Public Schools would like to thank Mariah Tyner for serving 8 years as the JOM Chairperson.  We appreciate all her efforts and hard work in helping the students of QPS!



Parents:

just a reminder that masks are a requirement for all 

6th - 12th grade students when attending Quapaw MS and HS.  Please help your child remember to bring a mask each day.  Also, please help them understand the importance of wearing a mask to help keep everyone safe, so we can stay in school and continue to offer school activities.


Just a reminder that 2020-21 Impact Aid applications are due. Please sign, date, and return it to your child’s school as soon as possible.
This is an important item in the financial operation of QPS. Your support is greatly appreciated!

Here are a few reminders as we deal with 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.
Wear a face mask.
Social Distance.
