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.
