Sayre Schools Distance Learning Plan
Dear Sayre families:
Our administrators, teachers, and instructional support staff are working hard to develop a distance learning plan that will help our students finish the school year strong. As you can imagine, this planning has presented its own set of trials, as most of it has occurred digitally or at a distance, so faculty and staff are protected just as you are at home. Our students deserve a learning plan that will help them grow academically this spring, and that is what we are determined to give them.
We know you and your children have many questions about what the remainder of the school year will be like. The purpose of this letter is to share what we know as we prepare for this significant transition. While this is not how we expected to end the school year, we believe our distance learning plan will allow us to keep students on track, while also protecting what is most important – their health and well-being.
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our teachers and staff, we will resume services to students on Monday, April 6, using our distance learning plan. We understand this ongoing instruction cannot be delivered through a one-size-fits-all approach. As you read the information below, we hope you can see how we are working to help meet the needs of all students:

A change of this magnitude will not occur without bumps in the road. However, with your help, I am confident we can offer the best services possible for our students under the circumstances. Below is a list of ways to get more information or address needs in the coming days/weeks:
FAQ – Visit our website at www.sayre.k12.ok.us or the school Facebook page for information on our frequently asked questions (FAQ) link.
Technology – We know some students may need assistance with Chromebooks and/or internet access during the closure. Please contact us as listed below if you have specific technology needs.
Office Hours – The central office will be open on a reduced schedule to manage child nutrition, payroll, and billing: Monday-Friday (9:30-12:30). We will take phone calls to answer questions or assist you as needed during that time, or you may leave a voicemail, and we’ll get back with you. E-mail is also a great way to reach us anytime with your questions.

Schools are at their best when the community works together, and now is the perfect time for us to shine. You were and continue to be your child’s first and most important teacher. While our faculty and staff will lead the way, we know you will encourage and support your child side-by-side with us.
Thank you for helping us rise to this challenge. We could not do it without you.
