Parents, Guardians and Students,
The teachers have been working hard and will continue to work hard to provide learning resources for the students of our district. We will not be passing out packets as we feel this will help keep families at home and safe. Our approach is to use an app since everyone usually has at least one phone in the family. We need each student with a phone, or each parent or guardian if a child does not have a phone, to download the free Edmodo app. Once you download the app then go to the Fort Towson Public Schools web page and find your teacher(s) web page. On each teacher's web page will be an "Edmodo Code" listed for their class. Type that code in the Edmodo app for each class and the student will instantly be linked to the teacher's Edmodo Class account and be able to communicate with the teacher, find lessons and links for assignments and begin the process of continuous learning.
On the District web page you will also find information about companies that are offering internet service if someone is interested.
Questions or concerns please contact the superintendent's office and I will do my best to help you.

"Together We Can Succeed"
Parents, Guardians, and Students,
Fort Towson Public Schools will continue to provide meals via delivery from now until May 14th. Starting Thursday April 2nd we will be sending home breakfast and lunch for both Thursday and Friday. At times the meals will contain items that need to be warmed up or refridgerated. Starting Monday from about 10:15 until 10:30 the bus will stop at the Swink School and have meals for grab and go for those children in that community who are not on our route or attending our school. As always the grab and go will be available outside the Fort Towson Public School Cafeteria from 9 to 11.
Due to the CDC guidelines related to the COVID-19 virus that no gathering should contain more than 10 people the Fort Towson High School Prom scheduled for April 10th has been postponed with a VERY strong possibility that it will be cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause but we feel strongly that Fort Towson Public Schools should do our part to help flatten the curve of this pandemic.
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.
Results Coming Soon!

NOTICE FROM FORT TOWSON HIGH SCHOOL
To the parents of students who are juniors during the 2019-20 school year.
Our school district plans to administer the ACT test in the spring of 2020 to eligible juniors as part of the state contract with the Oklahoma State Department of Education and ACT.
Last year over 95% of Oklahoma schools selected to administer the ACT. Our district believes this is an excellent opportunity for all eligible juniors to take the ACT at no cost to them or their families.
Additional information on why we chose the ACT can be found at: 8 Reasons to Choose the ACT Test
Should you have any questions/comments, please send an email to email@example.com by April 1, 2020.
The dress code can be found in the
student handbook located on the
Fort Towson Public School website.
