Reminder for students grades 9, 10, and 11! You are taking the ASVAB Career Placement test. Report to your first hour class for roll call and breakfast. You will be notified when they are ready to administer the test. All students in these grades will take the test. It counts as part of your ICAP graduation requirements.
Internet Availability for Families--Please watch the news for coming information on this program. You will have to do this on your own. Schools will NOT be able to do it for you. I will try to notify you when more information is posted . Mrs. Larman Are you eligible for the FCC's emergency internet discount program? More help is coming soon for the millions of Americans struggling to afford high-speed internet at home, which has become essential for school, work and many other areas of life during the pandemic. Congress' December Covid-19 relief bill included $3.2 billion to help low-income Americans pay for broadband service, as the country continues its push toward recovery from the health and economic crisis. Last week, the Federal Communications Commission officially established the Emergency Broadband Benefit program, which will make use of those funds. The program will provide discounts of up to $50 a month, or $75 on Tribal lands, for broadband service for low-income households. It also includes a one-time discount of up to $100 for a laptop, desktop computer or tablet purchased from certain providers, which are yet to be named but are likely to include major wireless network operators, among others. In an April Pew Research survey of American parents with children attending school remotely, 36% of low-income respondents said it was somewhat likely their children wouldn't be able to finish schoolwork because they lacked an internet connection at home. In the same survey, 43% of lower-income parents said it is very or somewhat likely their children will have to do schoolwork on their cellphones. While experts say long-term solutions will still be needed to fully close the digital divide, the Emergency Broadband Benefit program could make major inroads in the coming months, a crucial time for economic recovery. "This is a program that will help those at risk of digital disconnection," FCC Acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statement last month. "It will help those lingering outside the library with a laptop just to get a wireless signal for remote learning. It will help those who worry about choosing between paying a broadband bill and paying rent or buying groceries. This is good stuff.” Registration for consumers are expected to begin next month. Here's how to know if you're eligible. Households with at least one member who qualifies for the FCC's existing communications support program, Lifeline, will be eligible for the emergency benefit. Lifeline serves low-income Americans, including those on Medicaid and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Households whose children receive benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or school breakfast program during the current or prior school year will also be eligible, as will federal Pell Grant recipients. Households that suffered a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020, will be eligible if their total household income for last year fell below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers. The FCC will also provide the benefit to households that meet eligibility criteria for another low-income or Covid-19 discount program from a participating provider. How will it work? The FCC is still nailing down final details of the program, including participating providers and an exact start date. But it has shared some information on how it will work. The commission says that many types of broadband operators can qualify to provide service in this program, regardless of whether they participate in the existing Lifeline program. That could open the door for more internet companies nationwide to participate in the emergency benefit program. Participating providers will be reimbursed through the program for delivering broadband services or devices to low-income households. The FCC is in the process of establishing the systems needed for providers to participate. Once enrollment begins, eligible households can register for the program directly with participating broadband providers or with the Universal Service Administrative Company, a non-profit designated by the FCC to administer funding for broadband connectivity.
There will be an emergency test of the sirens in Coyle today at NOON. Again, this will be a TEST.
PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCES MONDAY, MARCH 8 AND TUESDAY, MARCH 9 FROM 4:00-7:00 PM. Prekindergarten through Fourth Grade Teachers will contact parents to set up Telephone or Zoom Conferences.

We appreciate the many students and teachers who helped throughout the tournament—thank you for helping in the concession stand at various times throughout the tournament—your help was tremendous, and we know it took time from your personal time, so we do thank you for making Coyle School a hospitable community where people can come and be welcome. We appreciate the “customer service” attitude you had throughout the tournament so people who came to the concession stand knew that they were welcome, and we were doing our best to serve them. We are proud of our Coyle High School Women, JV Women’s Team, Cheerleaders, and Men’s teams as well. This was a challenging tournament, and we appreciate you trying your best. We are proud of you and honored you are students at our school. We appreciate the parents, friends and teachers who supported the effort and made this all happen. Thank you!

Students were given black & white masks to wear in addition to having their temperatures taken at the door. Prom King is Justin Pickard and Prom Queen is Cree Sumner.

Coyle High School Graduation Tuesday, June 2, 2020 The Coyle High School Graduation Commencement Ceremony will take place on Tuesday, June 2nd, at 7:00pm on the Coyle High School Football Field. Graduation rehearsal will be Monday, June 1st at 9:00am at the High School Football Field. Rehearsal will be for graduating seniors only and those involved with the ceremony. To try and follow CDC guidelines and not have to limit the number of attendees, the ceremony has been moved from the Gymnasium to the Football Field. Graduates will be seated in the home bleachers. Family and guests attending the ceremony are asked to bring lawn chairs and/or blankets and spread out throughout the football field grass playing area. The speaking podium will be placed at the bottom of the home bleachers facing the football field. Family and guests will enter the field by walking down the visitor sidewalk and enter the field from the south. No one will be allowed to set up chairs/blankets or enter the field until 5:30pm. Guests are welcome to wear masks. We ask that you understand your own vulnerability as well as others and be mindful of CDC recommendations. We respect your concerns if you do not wish to attend as this is a ceremony and has no bearing on a student graduating. In the event the weather does not allow the event to take place outside, the ceremony will be moved to the gymnasium and each graduate will be given 15 tickets for family and guests to attend.
JUNIOR/SENIOR PROM--Juniors and Seniors MUST contact Mrs. Larman (405-612-0467) if you are attending prom with your date's name and grade level. We cannot have over 50 in the gym. It is imperative that you let me know. If you do not contact me and you show up, you will not be allowed to enter until we know that you will not put us over the limit. Remember you cannot bring anyone who is not a junior or senior in high school. We will contact schools to get them approved by the principal. We will still be doing social distancing; masks are highly recommended. Class Sponsors, the School Resource Officer and the Administration will be supervising.
Student Checkout May 2020 Students in grades 8-12 will check out of school when they turn in their laptops. Students need to bring all school supplies--textbooks, calculators, athletic equipment--to turn in also at this time. If you did not take your laptop home, you will still need to check out of school for the year. Those students who did not have a laptop at home may come any day Monday, May 11 to Thursday, May 14 between 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. If you have any questions, contact Mr. Weathers or Mrs. Larman.
Today is the last day of school for the 2019-2020 school year! It has been a crazy last couple of months and we want to thank the students, parents, teachers and staff for making the distance learning experience the best that we could! The principals have contacted students and parents about how to complete student checkouts. If you have not heard about a checkout time please contact them by email. Have a great summer!
Mrs. Ritter will be at the Coyle Elementary School from 10:00am-3:00pm today (May 8th) and all next week, if anyone needs to drop off homework packets or to pick up any student belongings. If you cannot make it during those times please email Mrs. Ritter at email@example.com to set up a different time to meet.
8th-12th Grade COMPUTER CHECK IN Students need to check their emails, so they will know when they need to come to the school to check in their laptops the week of May 11-May 14. We have to abide by CDC guidelines, so please make sure to come at the time scheduled or contact school officials as indicated in the email.

Importance of the US Census--If you have not done yours already, there is a major reason to do it. The welfare of our school district. From federal monies to state monies, we are dependent on these funds. Every single person in our school district counts when they tally our population. Please take the time today to complete the US Census for our students. Now more than ever, we need to make sure we are all counted. We are engaged in a new learning distance program that will change the way education looks in the future. We need the funds to make sure we continue to be competitive with the schools around us. It will take at the most 10-15 minutes of your time. Thank you on behalf of the students in our district for taking the time to complete your US Census.
Parents please follow these instructions when picking up packets on Monday. Elementary student packets (pre-K - 7th grade). Drive down the street (E. Crawford St.) going east between HS Building and Elem. Building. The pick up location will be at the cafeteria building Monday from 11 a.m. to noon each week. Please stay in your vehicles and and a Coyle School representative will come to your vehicle window. HS students packets can be picked up at the HS front doors. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Mrs. Ritter and Mr. Weathers
Coyle School has a plan in place regarding continuing the important task of providing education to students for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. Each teacher will contact their students in their class and outline their plan for online learning. If for some reason you do not hear from the teacher by Friday, April 3, please let us know by contacting me at 405-740-4922 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Our teachers are working hard through innovative ways to present the classroom material. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work out challenges that may arise. If you DO NOT have access to internet service, assignments for students can be picked up at the school each week on Mondays (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon). This will also be the time to drop off any completed work. School personnel will meet you at the front door of the High School during the time listed above. If you have any questions, you may call or email your teacher. The teachers’ emails are on the Coyle School website—coyle.k12.ok.us--under Staff in the Menu. Parents and students are welcome to call Mr. Weathers if you have any questions. Coyle School is still planning on the usual graduation date of May 12, 2020. If the State Department extends the request for no school activities and we cannot have an indoor graduation, we do have another plan for graduation of the 2020 Coyle School Seniors. All sport events and extracurricular activities are cancelled through the end of the school year. Please continue staying safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing everyone again and returning to our regular school environment in the future. Take care, and we appreciate you and your students having Bluejacket Pride. “GO BLUEJACKETS” Mr. Shane Weathers, Coyle High School 405-740-4922 email@example.com
For parents of students in grades 8-12, I emailed each student’s school email informing them of the upcoming distance learning to start next Monday. If your child has not accessed his/her email, please have them do so as other teachers are also trying to contact them. #bluejacketpride
The Coyle Public Schools Administration met this morning to discuss our district’s plan for distance learning from April 6th through May 8th. Principals will be contacting teachers starting today. Teachers will then be contacting parents and students next week with the individual plan for their class. Please be patient as there are several questions still to be answered. Also, please understand that distance learning does not necessarily mean using technology. Each teacher will adjust per student resource availability. This distance learning model is uncharted waters for everyone right now. Teachers will not be stressing pass or fail grades during this time. This plan is strictly to continue the opportunity to learn through the next five weeks. As of right now, we plan to still have a regular graduation ceremony for seniors on the originally scheduled date of May 12th, unless we are forced to postpone to a later date. We are also looking at possible later dates for prom. Again, please be patient as our teachers contact you with their class plan. This distance learning plan will not start until April 6th. There will be no instruction until April 6th. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Coyle Public Schools
Coyle Public Schools and our partnership with Keystone Food Service will be continuing to provide meals during the school closure throughout May 8th. There will be a change, however, in the days we will be distributing the meals starting Monday, March 30th. We would like to get some hot meals to the students. In order to do this, we feel a twice a week pick up would make this possible. Meals will be available for pickup on Monday’s and Wednesday’s at the same locations and times as they are currently. The three pickup locations are: - Coyle - The Coyle Schools Cafeteria - Langston - The bus stop at the park pavilion near the softball field and Fire Station. - Meridian- The Meridian Fire Department The times for pickup will be Monday’s and Wednesday’s, March 30th-May 8th, 11:00am-12:00pm. Students must be present in order to receive the meals. There will be a hot lunch on Monday, cold lunch for Tuesday and breakfast for Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday pick up would include hot lunch, cold lunch for Thursday and Friday and breakfast for Thursday, Friday and Monday. We hope that this will reduce person to person contact and keep the students and our employees safe in this unprecedented time. The menus are attached.
The Oklahoma State Department of Education and the Oklahoma State School Board of Education voted this morning, March 25th, to close school buildings through the end of the 2019-2020 academic school year. They are recommending that schools develop some kind of distance learning starting April 6th through at least May 8th. Please be advised that Coyle Public Schools’ administrators will be meeting this week to discuss how we will provide the distance learning for our students. This distance learning will be different in each school district throughout the state and we will take into consideration our district’s student and family situations and obstacles. There are, and will be, many questions about this plan and situation. There may not be an answer right now, but please be assured that we will address all concerns as they come up. Coyle Public Schools’ Administration will try to have our distance learning plan out sometime next week. Please also be aware that, if at all possible, I plan to still have at least a graduation ceremony for our seniors, if not a few other end of the year ceremonies, at some point. The dates of those ceremonies have not been set yet, however, I hope to receive more information soon that would allow those dates to be scheduled. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Coyle Public Schools
Coyle Public Schools will be partnering with Keystone Food Service to provide meals to students during the mandated school closure. The meals will be provided Monday, March 23rd through April 2nd, Monday-Thursday.

Students 18 years old and younger will be provided a grab and go sack lunch for that day and breakfast for the next morning. Students must be present in order to receive a meal. People will be required to stay in your vehicle as you pickup the meals. There will be a drive thru setting at each location. Please be patient through this process as we will adjust to any issues that occur. Thank you
Coyle Concurrent College Students--I emailed all of you the new online requirements from Redlands to your school email addresses. Please read and follow the directions in the email to continue your college classes. Contact Mrs. Larman at (405)612-0467 if you have any questions.

Coyle Community, If there is a threat of a tornado and shelter is needed tonight or any other time, the Coyle School Tornado Shelter at the New Gymnasium will be open. It is my opinion that the safety from a tornado would override the mandate of facility closures. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Coyle Public Schools
Coyle Public Schools, through our partnership with Keystone Food Service, will be providing a “grab and go” sack lunch to students in our school district, during the state mandated school closure, starting March 23rd. We are currently discussing details and will announce the location and times of availability later this week.
The Oklahoma State Department of Education and the State Board of Education had a special meeting today at 4:00pm where they voted to mandate all Oklahoma Public Schools to close and cease all operations until April 6th. Per this mandate, Coyle Public Schools will be closed and all operations, including extracurricular activities and building and facility usages, will cease until April 6th. I will be meeting with our food service management company on developing a plan, if feasible, to offer meals to district students during the school closure. That information will be given at a later time. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Coyle Public Schools
I just had a conference call with State Superintendent, Joy Hofmeister and other School District Superintendents concerning the Coronavirus COVID-19. The Oklahoma State Department of Education is not mandating, at this time, that schools close. They are leaving that to a local district decision, for now. However, if a school district decides to close the State Department will wave absenteeism, number of days required to attend, and student testing requirements for this school year. At this time, Coyle Schools will wait and see how some of this plays out over the next several days. We are out for Spring Break next week, so we can wait and make a decision about the future until next week sometime. We will continue to monitor this situation and will make decisions accordingly. President Trump is declaring a national emergency at this moment, so we may have more information soon. I’ll keep you updated as things change. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Coyle Public Schools

Update: Representatives from Meridian Technology Center and the Oklahoma Career Tech will be at Coyle Schools on Monday, September 9th at 7:00pm at the regular scheduled School Board Meeting to give a presentation to the board about Meridian Technology Center and the process involved in joining the Career Tech District. This is an informative presentation only. The School Board will not be voting on this issue on September 9th. If this issue is something the School Board wishes to pursue, then it will be placed as an agenda item at a future School Board Meeting. Coyle Public Schools has had several requests for the school to explore a conversation and information pertaining to the school district joining the Meridian Technology Center District in Stillwater, Oklahoma for Career Tech and Vocational type programs. Each Public School District in Oklahoma has the opportunity to join a Career Tech Center by a vote of the people of the School District. When a School District is a member of a Career Tech District, 11th-12th Grade students are able to attend the Technology Center at no cost to the student for several different vocational type programs and trades, along with adults in the district having the same opportunity to attend. The Technology School also provides transportation for those students by picking up and dropping off at the local Public School, which would be Coyle Schools' Campus. Coyle Public Schools is currently not a member of a Career Tech District and never has been. The district's registered voters voted down the proposal 30 plus years ago. Therefore, students who wish to attend Meridian Technology Center must pay tuition, which is currently roughly $8,000-$11,000 a year, plus providing their own transportation. If the Coyle Public Schools Board of Education chooses to put the question on a ballot for a vote of the people, the measure, if passed, would raise the tax millage in the school district. I have been in contact with Dr. Doug Major, Superintendent of Meridian Technology Center, today about gathering information on how much the taxes will increase with a voter approval, along with everything that the membership would provide. As soon as I have more information I will certainly pass it on and share it with our district communities and citizens. After forwarding this information on to the citizens of our School District, I will take comments and feedback to the Coyle Schools Board of Education and they will decide if the measure is put on a ballot for registered voters in the Coyle Public Schools District to vote on. Please keep in mind that holding an election costs the School District about $3,000, so the amount of interest will probably be key in the School Board’s decision. Please give me a few weeks to compile the information and I will pass it on. Please also keep in mind that the School Board and I know how sensitive this subject is to both those who support the issue and those that do not support the issue, because of the tax increase. We will do our best to distribute the facts and information and will make a decision that is in the best interest of the School District. Thank you. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Coyle Public Schools
Dear Coyle Public Schools Parents and Stakeholders: In 2015 the federal government signed into law the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). ESSA requires states to test students in reading and math annually in grades 3-8 and once in high school. States must also test kids in science once during elementary school, once in middle school and once in high school. In order to meet the grades 10-12 ESSA testing requirement, the state of Oklahoma gave schools in Oklahoma the option of using either the ACT test or the SAT test to be administered to 11th grade students each year. Both of these tests are national tests. Both of these tests are used as college entrance exams. By using one of these two tests, the Oklahoma State Department of Education, is able to monitor the performance level of Oklahoma high school students to determine how well students are prepared for college and career paths. Because of the ESSA and state requirements, Coyle Public School chose the option of giving the ACT test to 11th grade students. When deciding which test would be most appropriate for Coyle students, counselors and administration considered the following: where students would most likely be attending college, familiarity of tests, and available testing preparation resources. At the time, most colleges in the Midwest were more prevalent to advertise ACT scores as consideration for college entrance and scholarships. Also, most test preparation seminars and trainings were centered around the ACT. Because of these reasons, Coyle Public School currently administers the ACT test once a year to all 11th grade students during the Oklahoma state-testing window. We ask that you fill out this short survey to give us your feedback on the ACT test being given and our assessment options. https://forms.gle/MaDLjCir6znNu94n8 Thank you. Josh Sumrall Superintendent Shane Weathers High School Dean of Students Tammy Duncan PK-12 Assistant Principal Counselor

Attached is a letter from the Oklahoma State Department of Education stating that Coyle Public Schools has been granted accreditation for the 2019-2020 school year. This is no different, nor has their been any change, from previous years of accreditation; however, Coyle Public Schools is trying to be more transparent to the district patrons and community with regard to our operations. The letter also states that the district received zero (0) deficiencies when audited by the Oklahoma State Department of Education for the 2018-2019 school year. During the audit, which is conducted annually, all teacher certifications and employee credentials are checked, along with all other State mandates and statutes. Coyle Public Schools has also added an Open Records Request folder, under the documents section on the school’s website, that will allow public view of any documents requested by individuals and the resulting documents produced by the school district. Coyle Public Schools’ Administration and Board of Education would like to thank all Coyle Schools Teachers and Staff for their hard work and dedication in order to continue achieving this accreditation status and we would also like to thank the parents and community members for their continued support of the school!
