Dear Parents, Guardians, Family Members, and Friends,
We are off to a great start at Olive Public Schools. It is also that time of year for fundraisers. I know you can’t wait to hear what we are going to sell to raise money for our school! Wait, we are not going to ask you to buy so many boxes of cookie dough or items from a catalog just to make sure your child wins a prize. This year we are asking you to give a simple donation of $25 for each student to support his or her academics at school. You can give more or less: anything is appreciated. We realize not all will be able to donate, and we totally understand that. In addition, we would like to ask you for five addresses of family/friends to send a letter to in the next couple of weeks. You can include their email address or physical address. We will include your child’s name in this letter. This is for the school as a whole and for classroom use. There will still be some fundraisers for individual groups.
Your donation will help supply student and teacher needs in the classroom. Money will be used throughout the district for all ages from PreK-12th grade. Please consider helping us out this year. If you have any questions, please call the school at 918-352-9568. You will make checks payable to Olive Public Schools. Below you will be able to list the names you would like us to send these letters to in the next few days. Please return this slip to the office,or you can email these to email@example.com .
Thank you for sharing your students with us,
Olive Public Schools Administration

2020-2021 School Year
All athletes must have a physical done, and all forms turned in before practice starts. Please see links for forms. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
New resource for students to report inappropriate behavior anonymously. Also, online lunch payments are now available. This is the letter that was sent home with students.
Friday, January 11, 2018
Starting today, our school is launching a resource to keep our school safer. Students and parents will be able to report anonymously, via a mobile app, any information that will help keep a positive and healthy school climate within Olive Public Schools. We are wanting to be proactive instead of reactive when dealing with inappropriate behavior. Grades 4th-12th had an assembly on Friday introducing this new resource.
For our lower grades, we realize parents will need to guide their students more when using this resource. We encourage all parents to discuss the Stopit app with their students. The app may be downloaded free of charge through Apple or Google Play. You will need to call the school for the appropriate site code:
Online payments for lunches are now available. You must have an email address on your student’s demographic page. If you do not have an email registered with the school, please contact the secretaries and provide them with an email address, so you can log on to your student’s account and make payments. If you have any questions, please contact Karla in the cafeteria.

We will be unable to have a Meet the Teacher night due to COVID. So, we will set up appointments for all new students to meet the teacher. Schedules for middle school and high school will be released after all enrollment items are completed. The schedule will be emailed when everything is done. Email Mrs. Johnson at email@example.com with schedule changes. She will get back to you as soon as possible. If changes are not made by the first day, students will sign up for a meeting with her. You will go ahead and go to your scheduled classes.
Online enrollment link is at www.teacherease.com. You will login to your account. You will follow the list of items and complete each step. Please call the school if you have any problems.
You will have two options for instruction: on-site and virtual. Please call the school with any questions. If the virtual option is chosen, your teachers will be reaching out to you the week of school starting. As for on-site instruction, we will be taking temperatures before students enter the school. A temperature of 100 degrees or more will require a student to stay home. Please help us monitor your student’s temperature at home before they get on the bus.
All students will enter the high school building entrance; we will keep buildings separated as much as possible and clean in between lunches. Regular handwashing and use of sanitizer along with social distancing as much as possible will be encouraged. We will not require staff or students to wear masks, but it is encouraged per recommended guidelines. We are asking students to bring their own water bottle each day.
If a student or staff member tests positive we will act appropriately and make necessary decisions according to the Creek County Health Department. There is a possibility that we will have to cancel class if positive cases arise, and the need is there.
We encourage you to reach out to administration with any concerns or questions . We would be happy to talk to you.
