Parents and students:
There are still a lot of library books out. If you have library books, you can give them to the bus driver or their helper when they deliver meals. They can also be dropped off if you pick your lunches up at school. Thanks in advance!
In this ever changing time we are facing right now we all are having a very hard time to make any kind of plans that we know we will be able to see through to completion. However, we know we need to honor our graduates, so we are going to plan one way or another to give our graduates the recognition they deserve.
We are setting High School graduation for June 20, 2020 and 8th grade graduation June 19, 2020. If the CDC guidelines allow it by June 19th and 20th we will have our traditional graduation in the High School gym as in years past. However if the CDC guidelines are in place that prevent large group gatherings and strict social distancing is still in place, then we will have a Drive-In Theater style graduation to be held in front of the High School. More details will come in the following weeks, but we wanted to let families start planning for these events.
Of course, these plans all depend on the ever changing CDC guidelines that we must follow.

RESOURCES FOR LEARNING AT HOME
The Census determines how much federal funding and services our towns, cities and schools receive each year for the next decade.
Each undercounted person means an estimated $1,675 less per year (or $16,750 per person in Oklahoma over the next 10 years) in lost funding, grants and support for our communities – so accurate representation is important.

Due to the State Election Board cancelling the April 7th bond elections statewide and moving the bond election to June 30, 2020 and also to stay in compliance with the CDC guidelines related to the COVID-19 virus that no gathering should contain more than 10 people, the Town Hall meetings related to the Fort Towson No Tax Increase Bond Election that was to be held at the Swink Gym on March 26th and at the Fort Towson Public Schools Cafeteria on May 2nd have been postponed until June 18th and June 25th respectively.
