COVID-19 Closure FAQs
As many of you know, the State Board of Education voted to close all public schools. Currently, we plan to resume school Monday, April 6th. However, this could change due to public health and safety concerns. Hopefully, below you will find answers to any questions you may have. We will continue to update the webpage with new information as it becomes available.
We encourage everyone to continue to listen and adhere to guidelines from CDC and federal officials to stay safe and protect our community during this trying time.
How long will schools be closed?
At this time Maysville Public School is closed until April 5, 2020. This can possibly be extended if needed.
Will lost days be made up by students?
Schools will not be required to make up days missed during this state-mandated closure. The Oklahoma State Department of Education will meet March 25th and is expected to approve instructional time waivers so schools will not be required to make up missed days.
Does my student need to be working on a grade level curriculum?
Per OSDE mandates, all instruction is suspended through April 5th. However, we always encourage students to continue reading or utilize the numerous online resources that are being offered by companies during this closure. Your students still have access to the Study Island and Prodigy online programs that are used at school.
Extracurricular Activities and Facility Use
All extracurricular activities (games, contest, practices and workouts) are suspended through April 5th. All events that were scheduled in our facilities will be postponed including any rentals of the Multipurpose building.
April ACT test date
ACT has postponed the April ACT test date until June and July. ACT will contact those who were registered.
Meals for students
Beginning Monday, March 23rd (M – F), ALL students will be offered a meal through a bus-stop delivery or grab-n-go located at the elementary drop-off line. Please be sure to call-in to be placed on the list. Once your child has been placed on the list, they will remain on the list throughout the mandated closure. Bus-stop delivery will occur between 10am – 12pm and the grab-n-go will be distributing meals between 10am – 11am.
Prom / Banquets / Baccalaureate / Graduation
We are currently monitoring federal guidance for gatherings, and will provide information when it becomes available. Please keep in mind that this is a rapidly evolving situation and the guidance continues to change. We will provide more information about these events as soon as it becomes available.
How does the closure affect testing?
The OSDE has applied (but not yet granted) for a federal waiver for testing and school report card requirements for the 2019-2020 school year.
Special Education Services
Based on OSDE guidance, districts will not be providing educational services to students during this closure. IEP’s that are due for renewal still must be renewed as planned. If your child has an IEP that is due, you should expect a phone call from the school/Special Education Director.
Concurrent and Career Tech Classes
Concurrent classwork needs to be completed as direct by the respective college/university. Contact the instructor for guidance regarding coursework.
Mid-America Technology Center is closed through April 5, 2020.
Student grades will be frozen as of March 13, 2020. Third-quarter grades have not been posted and finalized. A plan will be developed to ensure that this school closure does not negatively affect a student’s potential final grade.
Access to Student Medications
Parents can pick up prescription medication at the school sites Monday, March 23rd from 9am – 11am. Please call ahead: Elementary (405)867-5550 or High School (405)867-4410.
