The COVID-19 virus has caused many obstacles to the traditions that mark the end of the school year; however, our teachers and students have risen to the challenge. Since the Senior Class of 2020 is most impacted by these obstacles, the seniors were given the opportunity to vote on their preference for graduation ceremonies. The majority (70.3%) chose the option of celebrating graduation on June 4th, 2020 at our football field. This is contingent on State and CDC guidelines allowing us to hold the ceremony. Having graduation at our stadium allows us more flexibility if the date needs to be adjusted. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony would be moved to the basketball gym. Mr. Buxton will present the poll results to the Meeker Board of Education and will describe the plan that was selected.

Parents and/or Guardians: The administrators, teachers and instructional support staff have been working hard to develop and implement a continuous learning plan that will help students finish the school year strong. This planning has presented its own set of trials, as most of it will occur digitally or at a distance so the school can protect the health of the school’s employees. Students deserve a learning plan that will help them grow academically, and that was the goal when the district started planning for distance learning. The school knows you and your child have many questions about what the remainder of the school year will be like. The purpose of this letter is to share basic information and to ask for your help as the school prepares for this significant transition. While this is not the expected way to end the school year, the continuous learning plan will allow students to stay on track, while also protecting what is most important – the health and well-being of students and staff. A change of this magnitude will not occur without some obstacles along the way; however, with your help, I am confident the school can offer the best services possible for students. There are several ways that you can help us at this time: Contact Information – Please contact your child’s school to ensure we have the most up-to-date phone number, email and address on file for your family. This will be important so that the school can communicate with you. Office Hours – If you have questions about the remainder of the school year or you need assistance with something at the building, please call your child’s school office between the hours of 9:00 am-1:00 pm, Monday-Friday. Other Resources – Please visit our website at www.meeker.k12.ok.us for information about free breakfast and lunch for all children, as well as updates, resources, and other information. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the administration, teachers, and staff; school will resume services to students on April 6, 2020 using the distance learning plan. The school understand this ongoing instruction cannot be delivered through a one-size-fits-all approach. Elementary Learning Plan The elementary will use two basic platforms for distance learning. Google Classroom or paper packets. If your child has connectivity to the internet Google Classroom will be used for assignments. If you do not have connectivity to the internet, then paper packets will be used. Teachers will also still use communication tools such Remind, Class Dojo, etc. OETA also has educational programming that is available to reinforce learning.

If a student’s annual IEP is due, the meeting will be conducted using a conference phone call, Zoom, or other agreed upon communication while abiding the recommendations of State and CDC guidelines. If your desire to have a traditional meeting, that will be documented and placed in the student’s cumulative folder and conducted after the pandemic of COVID-19 is resolved. Please call Special Education Director, Pam Leone to communicate specific needs (405) 788-4540 extension 204 email@example.com Blended Learning Center Students will continue lessons on OdysseyWare and Apex.

While faculty and staff will be leading the way, we know you will be encouraging, supporting and teaching your child side-by-side with us. Teachers and staff members miss the students, and the district is trying to make the best of the situation for everyone, while abiding by the regulations from the State Department of Education.

March 25, 2020 Meeker Staff, Students, and Parents: Today, the Oklahoma State Board of Education voted unanimously to close Oklahoma schools for the remainder of the school year as the State continues to fight the spread of COVID-19 virus. Students will not return to the classroom for the remainder of the current school year and all extra-curricular activities and special events will be postponed. State Superintendent, Joy Hofmeister recommended a continuous learning plan that will allow students to complete the school year at home. The dates for the distance learning program will begin April 6 and end May 14. This information is being shared so that you can begin to prepare accordingly for your family. The recommendation was based on the best interest of everyone’s health, which is the State’s greatest priority. Meeker is developing a plan to ensure your child will continue to have opportunities to learn and to grow academically, especially with parental support. These lessons and activities will be delivered and communicated through distance learning resources approved by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. As you can imagine, this is a significant transition for our students and our teachers. Meeker will spend the remaining time planning for this effort and will share details with your family as soon as they are available. Teachers and support staff members will hear from their principals when plans for distance learning are finalized. The district has posted resources on the website, including information about free breakfast and lunch available for students. The district will continue to make this service available and evaluate, making any changes within the parameters of the USDA school lunch program. The district will continue to provide updates in reference to COVID-19 when they become available. This is an unprecedented situation, and it has required an unprecedented response. This is a community that sticks together in challenging times, and know this experience will be no different. As soon as the district identifies the next steps, we will share them with you. Stay safe and take precautions to protect your family. Respectfully, Jeff Pruitt Superintendent
