Week of Jul. 28 to Aug. 3

I hope everyone is staying cool indoors this week as the temperatures climb close to the triple digits. 

It is hard to believe that a new school year is just around the corner, with the first day of attendance on Monday, Aug. 16. Barnsdall Public Schools has released its official enrollment dates for the upcoming school year for new and returning students.

All students new to the district and all high school seniors will enroll on Monday, Aug. 2. New Elementary students from Kindergarten through sixth grade will enroll from 9 a.m. to noon that day at the Elementary School, and new students in grades seven through eleven will enroll from 8 a.m. to noon at the High School. Additionally, all seniors new and returning will enroll on Monday, Aug. 2, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the High School. 

The rest of the week will be reserved for junior high and high school students who attended Barnsdall last school year. Juniors are scheduled to enroll on Tuesday, Aug. 3, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. On Wednesday, Aug. 4, the sophomores will enroll from 8 a.m. to noon, and the freshman will enroll from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Then, on Friday, Aug. 6, the eighth-grade students will enroll from 8 a.m. to noon, and the seventh-grade students will enroll from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. As always, please check the Barnsdall school website and Facebook page for more information.
