PCPS Announces Wildcat of the Week

Andrew Rogers
WildCat Of The Week

The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week
for Week #3 for the 2020-2021 School Year is

Po-Hi Senior, Andrew Rogers.

Superintendent Shelley Arrott said, "The Wildcat of the Week for Week #3 is another member of the Big Blue Band and Captain of the 2020-2021 drumline, Andrew Rogers. Andrew represents the characteristics of the Wildcat Way in a multitude of ways. His work ethic is unmatched! Even though he is a talented drummer, he pushes himself to develop his talents every single day. He is coachable, reliable, smart, communicates well with students and staff, and is dedicated to improving not only his own skills, but is instrumental in improving the band as a team. He is super positive, funny, and makes the extra effort to make each day better for everyone he encounters. His band directors tell me that he looks out for everyone. If he senses his peers are having a bad day, Andrew intervenes himself and reaches out to his directors or teachers to seek help or support for anyone in need. These traits make Andrew a very special person, but what impresses me most about Andrew is the way he treats other people. He is kind, compassionate, friendly, and goes out of his way to speak to everyone. Andrew looks people in the eye when he speaks to them and it is always a pleasure to visit with him. He is just that person who you instantly meet and feel like you have known forever. Andrew is trusted by his peers and teachers and never fails to keep his word and do what is asked of him. The entire band can count on his leadership!
“Andrew, back in the good old days when we could travel, I had the opportunity to see many drumlines perform at conferences, events, or even other schools I have visited. Superintendents like to show off their talented students and many ask their drumlines to perform for guests. I will have to say, I have seen some great drumlines in Oklahoma high schools, but none as talented as ours! You set the bar high as captain of our drumline this year, and I know your directors are proud of the way your leadership influences the Big Blue. More importantly, thank you for treating others with respect and kindness and for always having a positive attitude. We all can control the way we respond to things we cannot control, and you, Andrew, are a master of turning any situation into something positive. This has been a challenging year for everyone, but you have very maturely stepped up to make the best of it and help your friends, classmates, and teachers through these tough times. I am so proud of you for demonstrating compassion to everyone, not just your friends. You represent the Ponca City Wildcats with dignity and class. It was an honor to attend band practice this morning and surprise you with the Wildcat of the Week Award! We are all so proud of you, and I know great things are in your future!”


IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR COVID-19 AND PCPS:

Students/Staff affected are participating in Distance Learning remotely. Teachers will keep students and parents informed of Distance Learning details. However, students and staff under quarantine cannot attend school or school events throughout the duration of the quarantine. 

State law empowers the state Health Department with the exclusive authority to issue an isolation or quarantine order. Health officials will determine the length of an isolation or quarantine period. School districts are obligated by law to respect and cooperate with the orders of health officials. When we have a positive case in our school, our trained staff will complete a contact tracing investigation and will report the investigative data to the Kay County Department of Health. If a student or staff member is in close contact with a positive case, all close contacts will be quarantined, without exception, for 14 days. Close contacts are identified as those who were less than 6’ apart for more than 15 minutes from a positive case or who were in physical contact with the positive case. Quarantine prevents the spread of the disease that can occur before a person knows they are sick or if they are infected with the virus without feeling symptoms. Face coverings greatly reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19, which further reduces the spread. However, the face coverings are not an exemption from quarantine as directed by updated CDC Guidelines. 

If students or personnel are quarantined, they will not be able to come to school, enter buildings, or participate in school activities for the full 14 days, no exceptions. We want our students to be in school and to participate in activities, but it will take ALL of us to stop the spread. We want to avoid a temporary total school closure, with all students learning virtually. PLEASE DO NOT SEND STUDENTS TO SCHOOL IF SOMEONE IN THE HOUSEHOLD HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH A POSITIVE CASE OF COVID-19. 

Remain vigilant to stopping the spread of COVID-19. The CDC recommends the following best practices to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
 Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
 Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
 Avoid close contact with those who are sick.
 Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.
 Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
 Practice social distancing, leaving at least six feet between you and other people.
 Wear a cloth mask or face covering when social distancing is not possible. 

Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. If you or any member of your family exhibit these symptoms, you are encouraged to contact your medical provider for advice immediately. Symptoms usually appear 2-14 days after exposure. 

Important Reminder: Make sure your phone numbers are accurate in the Parent Portal. During this time of frequent contact, it is imperative numbers are updated so we can communicate wit
