School Closures & Updates

Dear Staff, Parents and Community 
The President of the United States has now declared a national state of emergency due to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).  In an abundance of caution regarding the safety of our Okolona community, we will be implementing the following protocol:   
 
Students and Staff
The Okolona Municipal School District will be closed through April 17.  As of now students are scheduled to return to school on Monday April 20.  The district will continue to issue a sack breakfast and lunch to all students PreK-12 daily. Students and Parents can pick up the meal at the east end entrance at Okolona High School from10:00-12:00.
 
Events
All field trips, school programs and events are canceled until further notice.
Decisions regarding athletic events will be made per guidance from the MSHAA.
 
Safety Precautions
Prior to COVID-19 being declared a pandemic, our staff have been working diligently to regularly sanitize buildings, offices, and classrooms.  We will continue the effort in the weeks to come as we strive to keep our school environment safe for students, staff, and families. We also seek your help in this process:
 
    1.  If your child is sick, we ask that you please keep him/her at home.  This 
         will help slow the person to person transmission of both COVID-19 and the
         flu.
 
    2.  Also, frequent hand washing with soap and water for at least twenty
         seconds is recommended.  
 
    3.  When soap and water is not available, please use hand sanitizer.   
 
The district will keep the community abreast of any issues or changes as they arise during this time.  However, please know that plans may and decisions are tentative, at best, and can change at any time pending new developments and/or guidance from the Mississippi Department of Education, the Mississippi Health Department of Health, our Governor's Office and/or other related state and local issues.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Chad Spence
 
 
District Vision: Successfully Reaching and Teaching ALL Students
 
Mission: The Okolona Municipal School District will provide ALL students with a quality education that meets and exceeds state learning standards in a safe and secure learning environment.
