Questions Regarding Friend School Closure 

Updated April 9, 2020


Is Friend going to be closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year?

The Oklahoma State Board of Education met on March 25, 2020, and approved a proposal to close all public school buildings for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. All activities in school buildings including in-person instruction,  athletics, and extracurricular activities are canceled.


Are students out of school on Friday, April 10?

Yes, it was a scheduled day off on our school calendar.  Enjoy the day. Grab and Go sack lunches and breakfasts will still be served Friday morning between 9:30 and 10:30.


What about instruction for students?

Students did a great job this first week of distance learning.  Families also did a super job with assistance and support. Thank you, teachers, for working so hard to get everything up and going for distance learning.  We are looking forward to working together to finish the 2020 school year Falcon Strong!  


What is distance learning?

Distance learning can be done in a variety of ways.  For example, it can be online, it can be done through public broadcasting such as OETA, or student packets can be utilized.  It will look different from school to school and even from grade to grade.  


How about Oklahoma State Testing?

State testing has been suspended this year in Oklahoma schools.


How about meal service?

Friend School offers a breakfast and lunch sack for any student 18 and under.   Meals may be picked up between 9:30 and 10:30 Monday through Friday mornings in front of the Auditorium.  


If I chose to pick up my child’s packet, where do I go each Monday?

Packets will be distributed each Monday morning at Friend School.  Students in Pre K - 3rd Grade will pick the packets up by the Lower Building.  Students in 4th-8th will pick their packets up at the Auditorium.


I am unable to get by to pick up my child’s essential supplies between 9:30 and 10:30.  Is there another time I can get them?

Yes, please call the school office at 224-3822  to arrange a time. The supplies will be brought outside to you.


How about getting personal items other than essential supplies?

When restrictions are lifted a time will be arranged for students to come and get the rest of their things.  Thank you for your patience.


How about school pictures that were taken recently?

We are in contact with Life Touch to find when we can expect delivery.


Thank you for your patience and support as we work together on this new adventure.  Please know we are aware of the many challenges everyone is facing at this time. It is our desire to make this a positive experience for our students and families as we finish the year.   Please let us know if you have other questions, and we will continue to update.


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 in their FAQs. 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 a priority one. The Friend community is a strong one, and we will get through these challenging times together. 

Looking forward to Week 2 of Distance Learning!

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