Covid Plan & Return to Learn









Dear High School Sophomore-Senior Parent(s):

On Tuesday, October 6th, our school will provide an opportunity for your son or daughter to take the ACT here on Bluejacket Campus. Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors can utilize this ACT School Day Testing opportunity and what a great and comfortable opportunity it is!

Taking the ACT is an important step toward the future for students:

  • It can help them get into college. (88% of US colleges consider test scores important in admission decisions.)

  • It gives them information on majors and careers in which they may excel.

  • Their scores can lead to scholarship and financial aid opportunities.

You can help your student do his or her best by reminding them of the importance of class participation, since the ACT tests students on what they learn in the classroom.  Our school has paid for a yearly subscription to the ACT prep site:  www.schools.shmoop.com .  Students can login with their Google email and password.  There are also many free sites students can utilize in order to better prepare for the exam.


Please encourage your son or daughter to take part in the ACT Exam. The test will be given on Tuesday, October 6 @ 12pm in the Bluejacket SafeRoom.


The ACT fee is $37.00 and must accompany the registration demographic forms students will receive on Thursday, October 1st.  If your family cannot afford to pay the fee and you truly want your student to participate, please send me an email and I will try and find some scholarship money.  We want to provide this great opportunity to every student that is college bound and is serious about what this test can do for their future!


If you have any questions, please email me at sbaker@bluejacket.k12.ok.us.


Sincerely,

Shellie Baker

Revised Covid-19 Response Guide & Return to Learn Plan
Tuesday, September 15, 2020
Dear Chieftains, 
Our Board of Education met last night and discussed many important monthly items.  Our local educational plan was updated to accommodate and answer some important questions regarding COVID symptoms and protocols that are to be followed to keep the virus out of our school!  The Chieftains "B" above has the link to our revised plan.   If you have any questions, see the plan or call the Admin Team.  
We understand that there are some seasonal allergies right now; but we are being as careful as we can by not allowing any students or staff with any COVID symptoms in the school - for everyone's health and safety!  Our virtual and blended setup  seems to be operating the best that it can.  We know that some technology issues are going to come up; thank you for practicing patience as education is continuing!  We do still have some Verizon HotSpots available.  They do not work in every area of our surrounding school district.  But if you are in need of Internet Access, it is worth a try to come and check one out to see if it works at your home.
We are in Week 2 of Orange 2 levels of COVID in our county.  However, as long as we are Covid-Free in our school, our plan is to continue to operate with in-person schooling.  That is why it is so important for our students and staff to be ready for virtual education,  just in case our county goes red or we develop positive cases within the school!  Thank you to everyone for your continued diligence on morning screenings and precautionary behavior!  It is much appreciated and our prayer is that we can continue Face 2 Face throughout the school year!
If you have questions, comments or concerns, always feel free to reach out!  We are here for the students and community of Bluejacket.  We are on the same team!  Thank you!

Oklahoma School Report Card

Accountability Update: Oklahoma School Report Card Dashboard

The Office of Accountability is reaching out to remind schools that if they have not already posted the link to the Oklahoma School Report Card: www.oklaschools.com on their school website that under the ESSA, beginning with information from the 2017-2018 school year, report cards must be posted annually on SEA and LEA websites. (ESEA section 1111(h) (1) (A), (B)(iii) and (h)(2)(A), (B)(iii)). At the core of the Oklahoma School Report Cards is the belief that all students can grow and all schools can improve. While no student report card tells the full story of a child, no school report card tells the full story of a school. Education is far more than a single score or letter grade, but it is important that families and communities can see both strengths and areas that need support and improvement.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Accountability at (405) 522-5169 or accountability@sde.ok.gov.  You may also contact the Bluejacket School administration regarding the school report card information.


Reminder: 24/7 Tobacco-Free Schools Act

House Bill 1685, also known as the 24/7 Tobacco-Free Schools Act, went into effect August 20, 2015. It requires that schools be tobacco-free 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This law prohibits the use of tobacco in any form while on school grounds and during any school-sponsored functions held off campus.  Bluejacket Public School has been tobacco free since 2012.  Please refrain from the use of any tobacco product, including vaping.  Thank you!



It is the mission of Bluejacket Public Schools to prepare ALL students
to succeed in a continually changing environment
through mastery of core curriculum, technology skills and essential citizenship traits.
