COVID-19 Alert (updated 8:00pm on 7/31/2020)
We recommend that anyone who suspects he or she has COVID-19 or has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 seek medical attention. None of our recommendations are intended to take the place of medical advice.
Three people who were at the Hugo Fieldhouse have tested positive for the virus. These people are in quarantine. The fieldhouse has been shut down.
For Hugo Schools Employees – Out of an abundance of caution, if you were in close contact with others (within six feet for fifteen minutes or longer) at the fieldhouse within the past ten days, do not report to school until August 10, 2020 if you remain fever and symptom free. Also, if you live in the same household as someone who has tested positive, do not report to school until August 10, 2020 if you remain fever and symptom free. If you were exposed at the fieldhouse and have received a negative test for the virus three days after exposure, please attend in-service beginning on August 3, 2020. Please contact your supervisor to let him or her know if you will not be able to attend our in-service due to exposure to the virus. You may be required to attend training via Zoom if possible.
For Students and Others – If you were in close contact with others (within six feet for fifteen minutes or longer) at the fieldhouse in the past ten days, seek medical advice. Please take all necessary precautions to avoid exposing others to the virus.
We recommend the rapid test for those who have a fever and/or symptoms of COVID-19.

Don’t let COVID-19 keep Hugo from COUNTING!
It’s easy. You can do it online at www.2020census.gov.
It’s confidential. Other agencies cannot access the information which is kept secret for over 70 years. There is no reason to fear completing the Census.
It’s important for our schools. A great deal of the funding we receive is based on Census data.
It’s important for our communities, including Hugo, Choctaw County, and the Choctaw Nation. We will not be able to take full advantage of so much offered through our federal, state, and tribal governments without accurate Census data.

From Our Superintendent
Hugo Public Schools is located in the historic City of Hugo, Oklahoma in the southeastern part of the state. We are proud of our heritage and optimistic about our future. The district is made up of four school sites educating approximately 1200 students. We are fortunate to have the very best faculty and staff providing students with outstanding curricular and extracurricular learning experiences focused on preparing them for success in life.
Thank you parents and caregivers for entrusting us with the education of your children. We take our responsibility of engaging all students in meaningful learning every day very seriously. We believe that education is the path to success in life. We are honored to be in a partnership with you in providing the very best educational opportunities for your child and for all the children who make up Hugo Public Schools.
Dr. Earl Dalke, Superintendent of Hugo Public Schools
Our Choice to Use ACT
Federal and state rules about state mandated testing allow districts to choose either the SAT or ACT as the Grade 11 measure of student proficiency in Reading, English Language Arts, and Mathematics. Hugo Public Schools has chosen the ACT because it is the more common entrance examination used by Oklahoma colleges and universities. We feel it is a better measure of the accomplishment of the standards that make up the Oklahoma Academic Standards (OAS). Our curriculum is aligned with the OAS which is aligned with the ACT. This alignment allows us to focus student learning on college and career readiness in addition to the development of important life skills. We value the opinions of parents/caregivers of our students as well as other members of our community. Please email any comments or suggestions about the district’s decision to use the ACT to our District Testing Coordinator, Mrs. Hicks, at email@example.com.
Educating Children Who Are Homeless
Hugo Public Schools faculty and staff work together to ensure a welcoming environment for students who are homeless. We strive to facilitate academic success for these students by giving them the right to remain in one school despite their residential status as well as the ability to access all appropriate educational opportunities and services according to the McKinney-Vento guidelines.
Please contact our Homeless Liaison, Mrs. Lori Hicks, at 580-326-9648 for information and/or help with enrollment and services.
