The OSSAA is requiring that all playoff tickets must be pre-purchased online as no tickets will be sold at the gate. Tickets will not be available until schedules have been set. The following link will take you directly to the site to purchase tickets or you may use the QR code on your phone to purchase tickets.
If you are a veteran, either active duty, retired, reserve or national guard, The OSSAA would like to invite you to attend the first round of the football playoffs for free next weekend! That’s right, all veterans and one guest will be admitted free of charge on Friday November 12th to all OSSAA first round football games. The OSSAA appreciates the sacrifices of all veterans, and hopes you will take advantage of this opportunity. Simply show your Military ID card, or driver’s license that shows your military status at the gate next Friday, and you and a guest will be omitted free of charge. See you next week, and thank you for your service!
Parents and Guardians:
We need your help. As you all know breakfast and lunch is free for everyone for the second year in a row. So with that being the case, very few of you have completed the free and reduced meal applications. I do understand why, but we need you to complete these by the end of October. Our TITLE 1 funding is dependent upon it. as of right now we have a Free and Reduced rate of 25%. Our usual number is 55%to 60% who qualify for free and reduced meals.
Tomorrow night when you attend parent/teacher conferences you can pick up these applications form your child's teacher or the front office including after tomorrow. The verification process is confidential and you check off the income level that you fit under. Only one person in our district sees these numbers. NO ONE ELSE in the school is privy to this information including myself.
The free and reduced rate needs to be raised. Its that simple. our TITLE 1 reading department is dependent on those federal dollars. Please complete these forms so we can get our percentage back to normal.

As we are all seeing covid numbers are going up across the state of Oklahoma. Right now, We have no cases of covid in Minco Schools among our students and staff; however, we do have students with family members that have covid and are under quarantine protocols. Even with the numbers that are low, it is imperative that we have a plan in place in the event of a closure should occur.
The OSDE has issued guidance that says if 25% of the student body has an illness such as flu, a closure is warranted. We will be smart and should we see a massive increase in numbers of covid, we will take the appropriate measures necessary. Safety is always important. Please see our plan below in the case a closure is deemed necessary.

We are seeing an uptick in Covid cases throughout the community and school district. We are certainly not in panic mode, but we are watching the situation closely. At this point, masks are NOT MANDATORY, but certainly we recommend your children wearing them if you wish them too.
We are sanitizing and cleaning our buildings daily. We are killing the germs the best way we can.
As of right now we are quarantining those that have the virus, and their household family members(siblings). You as a parent may quarantine your children who are exposed to the virus, if you so wish. We will work with you all of the way.
I ask you for your patience and understanding as we work through this together. We are in this together, and we will navigate through this.
