Truman Elementary

Game On!

As we approach the end of September, I'd like to say thank you for sending us such amazing kids! We have loved having them back in the building...nothing better than seeing learning in action! Unfortunately, as you will see in the district message below, we will be following remote learning schedules next week. We know this is for the health and safety of us all, but we also know it is a hardship on families. We will do what we can to support you and your kids while we are apart. Reach out to classroom teachers or to staff if you experience difficulty with SeeSaw, technology, assignments, etc.


Hope fully this will make you smile...this morning I noticed some pretty cute pirates making their way to the Grace PreK classroom! These kids were super excited about hunting for treasure during their day!

IN-PERSON LEARNING UPDATE - Friday, Sept. 18, 2020

As a reminder, we provide weekly updates regarding the status of in-person instruction. Each Monday, a forecast for the following week is provided. Each Friday, after Oklahoma’s Covid-19 Alert System is updated, we confirm the following week’s instructional plan. These updates are applicable only to those students who are enrolled in the traditional/remote or blended learning options. Students enrolled in the full-time virtual option will not be affected.

The Covid-19 Alert System was developed by the Oklahoma State Department of Health and has been adopted by the Oklahoma Department of Education. The alert system does not differentiate between Orange Level 1 and 2. However, according to the Oklahoma Department of Education, Orange Level 1 is defined as more than 14.39 but fewer than 25 cases per 100,000 people, while Orange Level 2 is defined as more than 25 but fewer than 50 cases per 100,000 people.


  • ELEMENTARY STUDENTS: Cleveland County is currently Orange Level 2 for the second consecutive week. Elementary students enrolled in traditional/remote or blended learning options will follow remote learning schedules beginning Monday, Sept. 21.

  • MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: Cleveland County is currently Orange Level 2 for the second consecutive week. Middle and high school students enrolled in traditional/remote or blended learning options will follow remote learning schedules beginning Monday, Sept. 21.

If your child checked out an NPS device when we were in remote learning, they should be bringing that home today so they can access instruction next week.

Child Nutrition News

We wanted to share some important information with you regarding meals while your student is on virtual/remote learning. Effective Wednesday 9/16/2020 we are making 3 day meal packs available for pick up to students that do not have access to meals in school due to virtual/remove learning. There is no charge for these meals.


Details to note are:

1) The USDA gave us approval to start giving anyone 18 years old or younger a free meal for breakfast and lunch.

2) The free meals will run through December 31, 2020 or while funding lasts.

3) Students will not have to show proof of enrollment or proof of age, just provide their name.

4) Meals should be pre-ordered online on the NPS website by 4:00 pm the day prior to pick up by clicking this link:

Hispanic Heritage Month

We are excited to share a few links in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month! This important cultural recognition started in 1968 as "Hispanic Heritage Week" under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on Sept. 15 and ending on Oct. 15. It was enacted into law on Aug. 17, 1988.
