EPS COVID-19 COMMUNICATION

The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed what school looks like this 20-21 school year. Check out the EPS District COVID 19 Communication.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Panther Families,


This year we will be hosting our Fall Conferences Thursday, October 8th, or Monday, October 12th from 4:30-8:00 pm. Conferences will be through Google Meet and a phone call if needed. Below you will find links to sign up for an 8-9 minute time slot to speak to your child's team of teachers. Team names are organized by grade level. Please find the appropriate teachers below and click on their team to go to the SignUp Genius link to sign up for a conference time.


When signing up for a time, please make sure you are picking the right night that works for your schedule - either Thursday, October 8th or Monday, October 12th. Also, remember to include your area code when you sign up for a time so teachers can be sure they have the right phone number if the internet blinks.


Due to the change in format, we know you might not be able to schedule a time to talk with your students' teachers. To help ensure families are given an opportunity to have these important conversations, we ask that you prioritize scheduling conferences for the team where your student might be struggling and needs some extra assistance. If conference times fill and you are unable to schedule a conference time with a teacher, please email the teacher directly to see when they are available to schedule a Meet on another day/time. Generally, Wednesdays or during their planning period will be available.


If you have any trouble signing up for a conference virtually, please don’t hesitate to call the school office at (405) 340-2935. One of our terrific secretaries will help you get signed up for our Fall Conferences.


Your time and investment in your child are greatly appreciated!


Gabe Schmidt

ATTENDANCE UPDATES

We have a few State and District mandated changes to attendance this year. Our District Office will be sending you more detailed information soon, but here are some important highlights you should know now:

  • Students’ two “in-seat” instruction days are extremely valuable! Please avoid scheduling appointments on those days if possible and try for remote learning days where there is more latitude in your student’s schedule. We understand this is not always possible. If your student must miss for an appointment, please be sure to get documentation!

  • Excused absences are coded ONLY for the following reasons with Documentation: Death in the Immediate Family (phone call & memorial brochure from service), Judicial (phone call & court document), Medical (phone call & provider’s note faxed /emailed from provider or original note for file), Religious (phone call & documentation from service or religious leader), and Family Emergency (approval of letter to administrator required). Parents should always notify the school of a student’s absence with a specific reason and may then follow up with documentation within the following week. Phone calls will be generated on the day of the absence and the absence will be adjusted once the documentation is received. If an absence is due to an illness which doesn’t require a physician’s visit, supporting comments will be entered in the student’s record with a code of ILL. Documentation may be submitted to: cimarron.middleschool@edmondschools.net

  • COVID 19 related absences should be reported immediately to our attendance line (405 340-2935) whether for exposure, diagnosis, questions or concerns. You will receive a follow-up call from your student’s administrator as soon as possible. Attendance accommodations may be possible. Documentation for this illness (test results, Dr. notes, etc) may be submitted cimarron.middleschool@edmondschools.net

  • New this year, three (3) tardies in any class is an absence. This is the same as the policy at the high school.

Please always leave a voicemail if you reach the attendance phone line, or send an email to above address. We want to talk to you and will follow up or return your call as soon as possible.
