SCHOOL BOARD LEADERS HONORED IN JANUARY


January is School Board Recognition Month and an opportunity for local schools and communities to honor Oklahoma’s more than 2,700 elected school board members for their dedication to children and schools.


“Providing our community’s children with a solid education is the most important investment we can make,” said Superintendent Pat Dodson. “We’re proud of our district, and School Board Recognition Month is the time to say thank you and celebrate the accomplishments of our elected board members.”

 

In Grove, school board members help develop policies and make tough decisions on complex educational and social issues impacting the entire community. They bear responsibility for an annual budget of $23 million, 2500 students, 325 employees, maintenance, transportation, child nutrition and 5 academic sites.

 

“School board members make critical decisions that affect Oklahoma children and oversee billions in educational expenditures,” notes Superintendent Dodson. “They preserve the core of our democracy—public education.”

 

Thank you Grove Board of Education Members: Dr. James Rutter, President; Clara Mills, Vice President; Karen Dyer, Clerk; Terry Jones, Member; and Jerry Crossley, Member


Grove School Board Revises Quarantine Guidelines

On December 8, 2020, the Grove School Board revised the district's Return to Learn Plan to align with the modified CDC
recommended quarantine guidance. Included in the  modified guidelines are two additional options relating to quarantine: 

1. Quarantine can end after Day 10 without testing and if no symptoms have been reported  during daily monitoring, as long as no symptoms consistent with COVID develop, and  the person wears a face covering in public until at least 14 days after exposure. 

2. Quarantine can end after Day 7 if the individual has received a negative test and has not  had symptoms during the quarantine period, as long as no symptoms consistent with  COVID develop, and the person wears a face covering in public until at least 14 days  

after exposure. The test may be a PCR or antigen detection test, but must be taken within  48 hours of the end of Day 7. Under no circumstances can quarantine be discontinued  earlier than the end of Day 7. 


Under either scenario, continued symptom monitoring and the wearing of masks must be  met. 

After stopping quarantine, the CDC advises: 

a. Watch for symptoms until 14 days after exposure. 

b. If symptoms present, immediately self-isolate and contact the local public health  authority or a healthcare provider. 

c. Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet from others, wash hands, avoid crowds and take steps to  prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Cherokee Nation Internet Connectivity Survey


10/8/2020: While the City of Grove has recently transitioned to a red COVID level, Grove Public Schools have seen a decline in students and staff members currently isolated and in quarantine.  Our current numbers of students and staff members unable to come to school are the lowest that they have been since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.  As the COVID-19 story continues to unfold, we, at GPS believe that it is our responsibility to look at all of the data that affects our school, students, and staff members.  As the numbers of COVID infection and quarantined individuals stays low with GPS, we feel it is safe, and in the best interest of our students, for us to continue to offer face to face learning.  Distance learning is available to those students who are forced to miss school for COVID related reasons.  We consider it our great responsibility to protect our staff and students and believe that the mitigation efforts we have put in place over the last 9 weeks allow us to continue offering a traditional education model at this time.  We learn more about COVID and how it is affecting our community daily.  This information, along with constant communication with local health experts, helps us to make decisions as GPS moves through this unprecedented school year.  

We wish all Ridgerunners health and wellbeing!


Pat Dodson

Superintendent
