Parents and Students of SMS, I hope all of you are doing well or as good as can be during this COVID-19 outbreak. Who could have imagined that our school year would be cut short this way? Over the past two weeks teachers at our school have worked to prepare for the best possible education they can provide during this unprecedented time. These distance learning services will begin on April 6th. Teachers are currently reaching out to parents and we are still receiving information from the shared survey to determine who has internet access so they may participate in online classes through Google Classrooms, Google Meet, Zoom, Study Island and other online platforms and who will need paper assignments. If you’ve not heard from a teacher or me through a call or email, hold tight and we will touch base. Teachers are working primarily from home. Monday was the first day that teachers were allowed back in the building. They go in one at a time to practice social distancing. During these short windows of time, they make copies and do some of the things that they cannot accomplish from home. When we determine for certain who needs paperwork (packets), we will get those out to you through school pickup, drop off or through the mail. If your student needs their username and/or password for any of the following online resources you or your student can email email@example.com (Mrs. Thomason) for the information: Google Study Island Accelerated Reader Wengage gradebook Thank you for your patience as we prepare to help the students from afar. We miss the normal school day as I’m certain you all do as well. Be safe, Mr. McInerney

Thanks so much for your help. We miss your children immensely!
The staff members at Liberty/Eastside have missed our students/families so much that we have decided to have a caravan on Wednesday, April 1st at 3:00 p.m. Staff members will drive caravan-style through some neighborhoods of the school's boundaries. We want to provide a safe and positive caravan experience that also adheres to social distancing guidelines, so please be aware of and follow these guidelines: • Keep all children (and adults) off the street as the caravan passes by. • Do not approach any vehicle. • Do not attempt to make physical contact with anyone in a vehicle. • Do not attempt to pass anything to anyone in a vehicle. • Please maintain a significant distance (at least 6 feet, more is better) between you and anyone who is not a member of your immediate family. *West on East Creek to South Wheeler *To Iola *To West Ruth Ave *To JT Stites *To Cherokee *To Dons Mobile Homes *To Cherokee *To North Jefferson *To Redwood *To North Elm *To Quesenbury *To Wheeler *To Cherokee *To school We love and miss each of you ♥️
Liberty Parents: Teachers will be in contact today through ClassDojo, Remind, Facebook Messenger or Grade Level Private Facebook pages concerning our next steps/process.
Information for School Closure (family survey) This confidential survey is to collect information that will allow our staff to plan for distance learning. On April 6, student learning will be done outside of school buildings, which have been closed statewide to contain the spread of the coronavirus. We want to ensure that we are equipped to transition to a distance learning environment in a way that meets the needs of all families. Your responses will help us determine how to best ensure your child continues to learn and grow until schools can open again.

SHS students, please check your Google Classroom and complete the Digital Access Form as soon as possible. We are currently making plans to implement Distance Learning for the remainder of the school year as directed by the Oklahoma State Department of Education. Thank you!
The State Board of Education has voted unanimously to close school buildings for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. All events and extracurricular activities have been cancelled. Our teachers will be developing plans to provide distance learning opportunities til the end of our scheduled school year. Official services have been suspended until April 6th. This will give the state, administration, and teachers time to remotely plan how to best service our students in such an unprecedented time. Any resources provided at this time are optional because we know many parents want to continue working at home with their children.
Food Delivery: Please remain in your homes and the meals will be placed at or near front door. Delivery drivers will wait until someone comes out and gets lunches before they drive off. Remain at least 6 ft from them as CDC recommends. We appreciate your cooperation.
Parents & Students: Reminder that starting tomorrow (March 23rd) Grab and Go meals will be provided for students to pick up at the west side of the Middle School Cafeteria and at the Boys and Girls Club from 11:00am to 12:30pm. Meals will be delivered between 11:00am and 12:30pm, per request, by calling the Administration Office (918) 775-5544. Students cannot be dropped off or stay on campus to eat. Also, due to the school closure our Elementary 4 year old & kindergarten pre-enrollment will not take place April 1st and 2nd. It will be rescheduled at a later date.
For all concurrently enrolled students: Your instructors should have contacted you via CASC email or Blackboard. CASC classes will be online until further notice. Students be sure to communicate with your instructor(s) and continue to complete your college coursework.
