Varnum PS: We will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, Jan 18th. Please do not send your children to school if they have any symptoms especially sore throat, fever or head ache. If your child is well and symptom free, we encourage you to send them. Although we are successful with virtual learning, we feel that most of our students have the best success coming to school (in-person). We will have our after-school program as well. Thank you for working with us as we maneuver through this pandemic. 🐾💚🐾
Varnum PS: Due to a fairly widespread outbreak of Covid-19 affecting students and staff, we are going to shut down this week. We will not go virtual. My hope was that we could make it through this school year without a complete shutdown, however, I do not believe we would have enough staff to operate this week. I know this creates difficulties for our families but safety is always my first concern. We will return to school Tuesday January 18th. David Brewer Superintendent
Reminder: 2nd Semester begins Tues Jan 4th. Empowering Whippets (our before & after-school program also returns Tues. Before-school @ 7am and after-school 3:30-5:30 PM. Hope everyone had an awesome Christmas Break. See you Tuesday! 🐾💚🐾
We have been made aware that there is a Tik Tok post being shared that refers to a threat to schools safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary” on Friday, December 17th. To ensure the safety of our students, we will have a police presence during the school day tomorrow. While this event is only a rumor, we recognize that social media is a powerful tool. We take any threat, alleged or otherwise, as serious. We ask you, as a community, to be vigilant as well. We will have a police presence and will be on high alert. All activities will go on as planned. David Brewer Superintendent

We will dismiss school Friday November 5th at 12:30 PM so that staff and students may attend Dion Wildcat's funeral. Buses will run at 12:30. There will be no After School Program either. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and for the late notice. 🐾💚🐾
As many of you know, the Wildcat kids lost their dad/grandad suddenly on Tuesday, November 2nd. Our Whippet Family grieves with them as they go through this time. There are several ways we can help them. First, if you are a believer in prayer, please pray for healing, comfort, and peace for this family. Second, we can assist them with funds to use for funeral costs, clothing, and to assist Minnie (mom) with any other needs she and the kids may have. If you would like to donate cash or check, please bring it to the school or mail checks to Varnum Public Schools, 11929 NS 3550, Seminole, OK 74868. Either office will accept your donation. If at all possible, we would like to be able to present a check to Minnie this Friday, November 5th. I am always surprised and humbled at the caring and giving nature of our Whippet Family. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give to our Wildcat kids. David Brewer Superintendent
