The Quapaw Board of Education appointed Albert Ray to fill the open board position. The Board would like to thank those that applied and interviewed for the position. We thank Albert for his desire to serve the students and staff of Quapaw.

The Board approved the following changes to the Ready for Learning School Reopening Plan:

Elementary School: Elementary students will not be required to wear masks WHEN proper social distancing guidelines are possible.

MS/HS: Students MUST wear masks in hallways, offices, classrooms, where social distancing guidelines cannot take place.

Bus riders will have assigned seats.  Masks REQUIRED.

Recess will take place at the Elementary School.  Social distancing as much as possible on the playground.

Those taking distance-learning courses have the option to pick up meals at the school cafeteria.

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.
