JPS food service will be on pause next Wednesday-Friday, July 1st-July 3rd.
Earlier today, the OSSAA board voted to conduct summertime activities in accordance with current Rules and Policies as listed in the Administrator’s Handbook. While many may feel this permits a return to immediate, full participation, Jones Public Schools will take a more measured approach. Over the last several days, Jones Public Schools has been in the process of developing a plan for the safe reintegration of our student-athletes and coaches into summertime activities. We will continue to develop that plan and provide it to our community in the coming days. This plan will ensure compliance with all federal, state, and local health and safety guidelines.
The State Department of Education is expected to order all schools in Oklahoma to close until April 6. We appreciate our state leaders being proactive during this health crisis. Our administrative team has been working on plans to support our students and their families as much as we can. We have requested permission from the state to provide meals to all families that need that service. We have to consider the possibility that there will be subsequent, longer closures, so we are also working on plans to provide some modified instruction online. Students who do not have the opportunity to participate in online activities will not be penalized; however, we are working diligently to make sure EVERY student will have that opportunity. We hope to be able to provide details on these plans in the next few days.
Girls State Basketball Tournament has been postponed until further notice.

We have a shortage of bus drivers again today, Sept 25, and will run the same double route in the PM as last week. Bus 1 will run its route then run the Bus 19 route. Students riding Bus 19 stay at each school site until picked up by Bus 1. We apologize for the inconvenience.

JHS softball has been canceled today due to weather.
A student at the middle school has made a non-specific threatening comment. The student told another student, “There are people I don’t like and I’d like to shoot”. The comment was not directed at any specific student and appears to be impulsive. Disciplinary action has been taken, and the student will not be in school tomorrow. We realize the anxiety these types of notifications create; however, we also realize some alternate version of this event will be shared in the community and cause even more anxiety. We are trying to balance your desire to be made aware and any reasonable cause for alarm. We are fully confident that our students are safe. Thank you.
