Hugo School board revises calendar

Body
The Hugo board of education met in regular session on Sept. 14, and approved the employment of two recent Hugo High School graduates, Vincent Gonzales and Sergey Dotsenko, along with Vi- Nikki Nguyen and Tonya Frazier. We welcome these new hires to the HPS team. Several polices were revised and new policies were adopted as recommended by the Oklahoma State School Boards Association. These policies mostly deal with new laws and the pandemic. An agreement with Choctaw County EMS to provide ambulance services for school events was approved. The board revised our school calendar in order to include the four days missed at the beginning of the year. These days will now include a virtual day on Sept. 18 and in-person days on Oct. 2, Oct. 30 and Nov. 13. Our Schooling During the Pandemic Plan was revised by the board to include our new mask mandate. This updated plan along with COVID-19 updates can be found at www. hugoschools.com.
