Dear Warrior Nationparents and staff:

This afternoon, the state Board of Education voted to close all Oklahoma schools, effective immediately, until at least April 6 in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19. This includes Idabel Public Schools. Additionally, there will be no school activities during this time.

Communication will be key during the next two weeks. It is our hope that accurate and up-to-date correspondence will combat fear and panic, as well as help you make well-informed decisions for your family. As a district, we will be sending correspondence to you by email, social media, district mobile app.  You also can get the latest information by visiting, we will be posting answers to frequently asked questions as soon as they are available, including those about child nutrition services, employee payroll, end-of-year activities and more.

For Idabel Public Schools, there is nothing more important than the safety and health of our students, staff, and community. We want you to be safe, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding. The Warrior Nation is strong, and we will get through this together.


Doug Brown
