Due to staffing absences and a rise in positive Covid cases among students Vanoss will continue in virtual learning beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, January 18, 2022, for all sites including special services. We hope to return to in person learning on Monday, January 24th. All ballgames have been cancelled for the week of January 17th. The Winter Formal dance will be postponed, and we will schedule a new date as soon as possible.
Teachers will be in contact with you for work that will need to be completed. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions.
Meals will be provided but each family will need to call the Child Nutrition Department (580)759-2503 ext. 107 between 7:00-10:00 tomorrow morning (1-18-2022) if you would like to pick up breakfast/lunch for your child(ren). Meals will be picked up in the front of the school between 11:00-12:00 on Tuesday, January 18, 2022, and will contain (6) breakfasts and (6) lunches.
The school is required by law to report any positive cases to the State Department of Education so please continue to inform the building principal if your child tests positive or will need to quarantine (this will also help us with making remote learning/in person decisions).
We apologize for any hardships this has caused and hope to return to in person learning next week or as soon as it is safely possible.
The purpose of the Himonaꞌ program is to offer abstinence education and training for youth and their family members. The Himonaꞌ program’s goal is to help youth identify healthy relationships, develop skills to make good decisions and set goals for the future, while understanding and avoiding sexual transmitted diseases (STD).
The Himonaꞌ program provides accurate information regarding pregnancy, STDs, contraceptives and practical ways to avoid inappropriate sexual advances.
The Himonaꞌ program presents to schools and participates in community activities to teach students why abstinence is the most effective method of preventing pregnancy and STDs.
This Program will be presented by the Chickasaw Nation Office of Family Services through its Family Service Program Jan. 11th – 19th during school hours at Vanoss School. Please call Gary Johnson at (580)759-2503 ext. 105 if you have any questions. Please send permission slip back.
