Our administration team just finished listening to the Oklahoma State Department of Education Board meeting. It is official that all schools in the state of Oklahoma will stop on site building instruction and all extra curricular activities for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year due to the pandemic in our nation. With this being said, we will implement distance learning and other instructional strategies as of Monday, April 6th. Our staff is currently working on those plans as we speak and will continue to do so during the next couple of weeks. It is so important that we know who has technology capability and internet through their household. Please call us at 918-352-9569 ext. 217 and leave a message. If you have email access, please email email@example.com.
Our teachers will be reaching out to you from different phone numbers other than the school in some instances. Please note that, when receiving calls. This is all a work in progress. We are working hard to make sure every student will be served in the best possible way. I know there will be questions, please email them to me. I will put a question and answer page on Facebook and our website once we have compiled some of them.
Also, to our seniors, you have worked so hard for this year. We are also working on some unique ways to celebrate you. More information to come on this. Hang in there, and know we are very proud of you.
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 are excited to tell you about two new programs to start in the 2019-2020 school year. Olive Public Schools will now have an after school care for students at a minimal cost. This program will consist of tutoring, snack, and extra curricular activities to allow each child to benefit from this program. Certified staff will be leading this program, and it will be offered from 3:30 pm to 6 pm while school is in session.
The other program we are offering is a blended learning opportunity for students 6th-12th grades who need to approach school differently due to varying circumstances and still thrive in attaining their educational goals. Many students have chosen an online education route, but are not able to participate in the extracurricular activities that public schools have to offer. Some or all learning can be done from home, but certified staff will be available at the school for any help needed. Forms will be available for parents and students to fill out in order to guide their individual education route. Please email Joanna Lobaugh, Principal of Curriculum and Instruction, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on both of these programs.
