Good Evening Marietta Family, It has been a very different summer from any we've ever experienced, but we have used the time given to prepare for a school year that may also look quite different than any before. Knowing that it is the best way to deliver quality education, Marietta Schools is committed to providing face-to-face instruction for the 2020-21 school year in a safe environment for both our students and our staff. We are truly looking forward to school starting on August 13th! As this pandemic has proven to be an ever-changing situation, we are continuing our work with local health officials and our amazing staff on specific plans that will allow us to do everything feasible to keep our schools healthy and fully operational while providing a positive learning environment for our students. More specific plans will be released in early August so that we can make the most informed decisions based on the facts at that time, while giving parents and staff time to prepare accordingly. To avoid unnecessary face-to-face contact, enrollment will be fully online this year. If you have not received a parent activation email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to update your information or contact your child’s site. Please include the names of all students and grade levels in the email. Online enrollment will be open soon! All cafeteria charges, library fees, etc. must be paid in order to finalize enrollment. By default, all students will be enrolled as usual in the traditional in-person model; This typical educational model is what we believe to be the most effective means of educating our students; however, we realize that this model may not meet the unique needs of every child. For this reason, we are also working to finalize plans to offer a full-time virtual instructional model for qualifying students who will commit to at least a full semester of attending fully online. Parents need to notify their child(ren)’s site principal as soon as possible if they plan to request full-time virtual. There will be no school supply lists issued for Marietta Schools. All school supplies will be provided by the district for grades Pre-K through 8th grade again this year. We continue to do this as a service to the community and to help limit sharing of supplies. We unfortunately anticipate disruptions to our school year including the need for short and potentially long term closures due to COVID-19. Notice regarding closures and other important information will be communicated via our Marietta Public School app, Facebook page and automated call/text system. In case of necessary school closure, our teachers and staff will be prepared to move fluidly from in-person to online instruction at a moment's notice. To help facilitate online learning, devices are available to be issued to every student and hotspots will be available to enable internet access at home. We have also increased our WiFi capabilities to allow access from parking areas on campus after hours and during closures for those with limited reception in their area. More information regarding devices and free WiFi will be available in the online enrollment documents and our return to school plan released in early August. Teachers will begin showing students how to navigate the devices and the learning platforms during the first days of school and much of the in-person instruction will incorporate online learning where feasible so that transitions will be more effective. Bus transportation will be available for students for the 2020-21 school year; however, social distancing on bus routes will be a challenge. We will assign siblings to seats together when possible and windows will be down to allow increased air flow. Buses will be sanitized after each route. We ask that if you have the ability to transport your child(ren) to and/or from school that you please do so to decrease crowding on buses. Other ways we plan to protect our staff and students include frequent sanitation of classrooms & buildings, temperature screenings and encouraging voluntary mask usage. Any formal decisions regarding wearing masks will be made based on advice/mandates from state and local health officials and will be in the final district plan in August. Although we have stocked up over the summer, the district’s supply of disposable masks will be depleted quickly and it is impossible to know if more will be available. If at all possible, please be prepared to provide a mask(s) for your child to wear and practice wearing them often. Talk to your child about the importance of social distancing and proper hand washing. And as always, please do not send your child to school if they are feeling unwell or exhibiting symptoms of illness. This year will no doubt be difficult and challenging to say the least, but with your help and patience we will navigate through this uncharted territory as smoothly as possible. Our final plan, which will answer more specific questions, will be released the first week of August. Until then, be sure you have downloaded the school app and have updated your email address for enrollment. Thank you for sharing your children with us! Brandi Naylor Superintendent

Re-posting to Live Feed - view attached letter on school website or Facebook. Good afternoon, Marietta Indians! Teachers and Administrators are working hard from home to get ready for our state mandated distance learning that is starting next week. Our world is stressful enough right now, so parents and students please do not stress over this! Distance learning is not meant to take a lot of time each day and will be a review of skills or games and projects using skills already learned. It will not take as much time as it would in a regular school day. Depending on the grade level, it should take no more than 30 minutes to an hour in lower grades to 1 -2 hours for high school students per day to complete. Many of our older students have been using a digital format in most of their classes already. We will have flexible solutions for students who have internet at home and those who do not. We will also check out computers for students who have internet, but just need a device to be successful. See attached for our schedule for picking up personal items, checking out devices as well as other pertinent info regarding distance learning. We appreciate your patience with us through this process as this is all new to many of us as well. Principals' emails are listed on the attached letter. Please email your child's building principal if you have specific questions. You can also call your child's building or our main number at 276-9444 and leave a message that will be directed to the appropriate person.

Good evening, Marietta Indians! This morning, the State Board of Education voted to close schools and all extracurricular activities to be canceled for the remainder of the school year as expected. There are still a lot of questions during this extraordinary time, but what we do know is that we miss and care about our students. Here is what you can expect at this time: We will begin to offer daily meals for students next Monday, March 30th. Watch our Facebook page for pick-up schedules. We are working on schedules for pick up of personal items from classrooms/lockers as well as medication. Your child's site will be sending out information as it is available. We are also working on a creative alternate plan for graduation as we want to honor our Senior's amazing accomplishments. Information will be sent out as soon as it is available. If you are needing to reach out to a teacher or coach during this time you can contact them via email. All staff have access to their school email even when not on campus. Follow this link to access our staff page on the website. https://www.mariettaisd.org/o/marietta-ps/staff. We will begin the required distance learning services on or shortly after Monday, April 6th. We understand that a fully online platform may not be feasible for all of our families. Our teachers are planning for all circumstances including using online instruction as well as other methods for those that do not have internet access. Each site will work with families' individual circumstance to help meet the needs of our students. The state will be giving us further guidance on the many questions we have about this process and we expect to be able to apply some flexibility in this difficult time. Just know we are all in this together and we all want what is best for our students. We ask for your patience as we plan and please email (preferred) or call 276-9444 to leave a message if you have more immediate needs or questions.

We are sending out a google form survey, at the middle school level, to our parents. Please check your email for the form.
We are missing our kids!!! Teachers will be calling this week to check on our students and their families.
After careful consideration, we have decided not to offer daily meals to our students during the current 2-week closure. Instead, we have received a large donation from a vendor providing us with fresh produce. This produce along with additional canned food from our food pantries is being sorted and packed by volunteers from our school and community and will be delivered to approximately 60 students we know are in need. If the closure extends beyond the initial 2-week period, we will reevaluate and look at all options including providing daily meals to make sure our students are fed. If you are a parent of a Marietta student that does not receive a food box/backpack and are in need of food please contact Mrs. Naylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school's main number 276-9444 to leave a message and we will help put you in touch with resources.
The Oklahoma State Board of Education has enacted a mandatory statewide school closure in effect until April 6th. We are waiting on additional guidance from our state agencies and will make plans over the coming days to best serve our students and staff during this closure. Please watch for additional information via our school app, Facebook and automated call system.
Oops! Our mistake. Tomorrow's Teacher Professional Day was not listed as a no school day on the online calendar. Hopefully you were relying on the paper calendar given to all parents at enrollment. Please accept our apology if this causes any inconvience for your family.

Thank you Middle School parents. We had an awesome turnout for “Meet your Teacher”!!!! 149 students came and met teachers, decorated lockers and familiarized themselves with classes. We can’t wait to see you Thursday morning.

Work began on two facilities at Marietta Public Schools last week, a locker room and hitting facility for the softball field, and the site pictured above, to the north of the cafeteria. This site will be the new home for a 5,245-square-foot building that will house STEM classrooms and labs in half of the building and administrative offices in the other half. The Tri-County Special Education Co-op will move into the current administration facility when the new one is finished. Projected completion date is early 2020, pending no unforeseen construction delays. While the softball complex will be funded from proceeds of a bond passed last summer, the STEM/Admin building will be funded from the district's building fund.
