The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is working with Moore Public School officials regarding concerns from parents and students...
Dear Patrons of Moore Public Schools,
This weekend (October 17-18, 2014), the Moore school district was made aware that several staff members, as well as students from Moore Public Schools were on the same Carnival Cruise as the lab technician who handled the Ebola patient’s specimens at Texas Presbyterian Hospital.
Dear Patrons, Our school district, as well as the entire community, has weathered a particularly difficult 2013; yet despite the sad and challenging circumstances of this past year, exciting things are on the horizon for Moore Public Schools as we enter 2014...
Dear Moore Public Schools Family:We have heard from people across the country who have sent in monetary donations of all sizes, messages of hope and strength, and offers to travel many miles to come and help in person. Moore is a strong community and we will rebuild no matter what, but the love and support we have received from across our state and our country has lifted us up immeasurably. Even through this tragedy, we know we are blessed.We are actively working to ensure that all of our sites will be up and running for the upcoming school year. Countless employees and volunteers are working tirelessly to get us back to business as usual. It will be a long road but never forget, Moore is OK.Susan "Susie" PierceMoore Public Schools Superintendent
Dear Moore Public Schools Family:Over these past several days, we have continued to hear stories about our teachers and staff who stand strong in the aftermath of this disaster. They are inspiring and will lead us all as we carry on.From the teacher who has lost the contents of her classrooms in both the 1999 and the 2013 storms, to the students and staff who are working to find an alternative site for their annual teacher vs student kickball tournament, we can find strength.They remind us that Moore is OK. Together, we will help one another. Our community will return, stronger than ever. Sincerely,Susan “Susie” PierceSuperintendent, Moore Public Schools
Dear Moore Public Schools Family: Today, Memorial Day, marks just seven days since our community dealt with a natural disaster of unprecedented destruction. One week since we had just 16 minutes from the sound of the first siren to shelter and protect the precious children in our care.
We were moved and honored by President Obama’s visit to our schools and to our community. He shared our grief for the precious lives lost, and lauded the principals, teachers and school staff whose quick response and bravery saved countless lives. President Obama’s words of encouragement and commitment of support give us even greater fortitude as we begin the process of healing and rebuilding.
As the sun rises each day I feel stronger and more hopeful about our recovery. Driving to graduation this morning, I passed many homes and businesses witnessing the volunteers from near and far combing through our neighbors’ homes and our campuses in an effort to save memories and recapture a sense of normalcy.
