Cordell Schools will be offering a Driver’s Education class this summer to eligible students who are at least 15 years of age by June 15, 2016 and who pay a $200 enrollment fee by June 1, 2016.

Driver’s education requires 30 hours of mandatory classroom instruction and 6 hour of driving with a certified instructor. The required classroom instruction will be from 8:00 am – 3:30 pm on June 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 13th. Students will be released for a 30 minute lunch break each... day. Each student will also be required to drive 6 hours and that schedule will be worked out with the student and the instructor. Additionally, students may be required additional time riding with another student and the instructor. ANY STUDENT WHO DOES NOT COMPLETE THE MANDATORY 30 HOURS OF CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO DRIVE AND WILL BE DISMISSED FROM THE CLASS. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN.

This class will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Your spot will not be secured until this form is returned and your $200 enrollment fee is paid.

CPS Implements SchoolMessenger System...

Cordell Public Schools is implementing a new program called SchoolMessenger this year. This new system will allow us to notify parents and guardians of student absences, lunch bills, school closings, important announcements, and emergency situations. Messages and phone calls will come from the school's phone number 580-832-3420. We will notify you based on your preferred method of phone call, email, or text messages. Please help us by verifying and updating your contact information with your child's school office. We believe this resource will become a valuable tool communicating school events with you.

To comply with wireless carrier requirements and protect against unsolicited text messages, you may receive an SMS message to the wireless cell phone number that the district has on file requesting that you opt in to receive important information from the district via SMS text message. The message you receive will be similar to the following: "Cordell Public Schools alerts. Reply Y for aprx 5 msgs/mo. Txt HELP 4 info. Msg&data rates may apply. Visit". So that you can continue to receive these important messages from your student’s school district, we encourage you to reply with "Y" or "Yes" or "OPTIN" when you receive such a verification message.

To opt out of all text messages from SchoolMessenger, visit or reply with STOP to the opt-in message that you receive. If you opt in, but decide to opt out later on, you may also reply "STOP" to any message or send "STOP" to 68453. The school district does not pay for text message charges that may be incurred by you for sending or receiving text messages. Check with your wireless carrier for possible charges.

Biometric Palm Scanning Information

Cordell Schools is using a near-infrared light scan which captures and stores a student's palm vein pattern. Unlike fingerprinting technologies, the palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the blood is actively flowing within the individual's veins, which means that forgery is virtually impossible. The information cannot be shared... with any other organizations outside of the school district. The patterns can only be used by the school district.

The device does not come in contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic. It also makes it ideal for use with young people, who are often in a rush and are prone to forgetting or sharing, punch or swipe cards. This system ensures that parents can only be billed for meals provided to their children. Waiting times in line are also significantly reduced. Students who do touch the scanner are encouraged to use the hand sanitizer provided nearby.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mr. Overton at or at 580.832.3420 ext. 101.

In Case of Inclement Weather...
When conditions exist which may cause the delay or dismissal of school, local media will be notified.  News concerning the dismissal of school will be broadcast over KWTV (Channel 9), KOCO (Channel 5), and KFOR (Channel 4), as well as 95.5, 96.5 99.3 and 101.7 FM radio stations.
