Dear Parents and Families,
The Oklahoma State Board of Education held an emergency meeting yesterday afternoon resulting in a mandate that all public schools in Oklahoma close from March 17 through April 6. This includes all extracurricular activities.
Members of the Commerce Public School District administration will meet to plan for continuing to serve our students during this time. We will share information as soon as possible on meal service through our child nutrition program.
The Commerce Public School District leadership team is working diligently with top leaders in our state to stay abreast of the most recent developments. As our understanding of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic changes rapidly, it’s important for our community to remain calm and continue to practice preventative measures such as good hand hygiene, staying home when sick, avoiding large crowds and social distancing.
The health of our students and staff continues to be our number one priority. If you believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus/COVID-19 and/or have symptoms, immediately self-quarantine and contact the COVID-19 Call Center at (877) 215-8336 or call the Ottawa County Health Department at (918) 540-2481.
Thank you for your help in keeping our community healthy and safe. We will update information as it becomes available.
Jimmy R. Haynes Ed. S. Superintendent
