School Closure Questions

Questions Regarding Friend School Closure through April 5, 2020 
When schools close, there are usually many questions that arise.  We are in an unprecedented situation, and it continues to evolve by the hour. We know this uncertainty can cause anxiety and worry. Friend School will work to keep you updated during this time. 
How will I know when school will be back in session?
Friend School  is operationally closed until  April 6th, 2020. ​Prior to April 6th, state officials are expected to assess the situation to determine if a longer closure is necessary.​ We will communicate further information and notifications in regards to reopening  via our social media pages, news media, and our Automated Caller system. 
Will days be made up by students?  State schools Superintendent Joy Hofmeister is expected to take this issue to the State Board of Education Meeting on March 25, 2020. ​This information will be updated as it becomes available. 
How does the closure affect instruction?
The district will not be providing educational services to students during the current operational shut-down. As always, we encourage reading at home, utilizing games, educational websites, and any other activity that allows for our students to practice skills they have been working on at school.  
How about ​ ​Athletics, Activities, & Events?  
​All competitions, practices, and events are postponed/canceled for employees, families,   students, and community. 
When will Friend School have Pre-K enrollment?
Pre K enrollment has been postponed until regular school operations resume. The dates will be announced when they are rescheduled on our website and on Facebook. 
How does this affect state testing?
The Oklahoma State Department of Education will provide guidance to schools as it becomes available.  
The Oklahoma State Department of Education has a great deal of information on their website, and have worked hard to answer many questions for schools. The Oklahoma State Department of Health and the CDC websites are being updated on a continuous basis as well. 

The health and safety of our students, staff, and community is priority one. The Friend community is a strong one, and we will get through these challenging times together. 

Thank you for your support.  Please stay safe and healthy.
