Concerned parents,

Due to the extreme temperatures that will present this week, times of sporting events will be subject to change in effort to keep our student athletes safe. Coaches for each respective sport will be notifying parents of any changes in start times.

The football game at Heavener has been moved to an 8pm start time on Thursday 8/24.

Please make sure your children are staying properly hydrated and are getting enough rest as we encounter high temperatures. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s administrator or my office.

Elementary Picture Day
August 29th


Elementary Parents,
Thank you for being so patient and understanding this first full week of school. We have changed a few morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up procedures. Our number one concern is the safety and education of your child. The morning drop off procedure begins with the doors opening at 7:30. We will have two lines and car 1 and 2 in each line will let their children out. We ask that you have them ready to get out when you pull up to those spots. After all four cars have unloaded we will let you proceed forward. Please remember to be considerate of the others waiting in line. There is no parking in the middle from 7:30-8:00 to drop off and walk in your child. This is too much of a safety concern. If you must come in, you will need to park down by the flagpole and walk your child in using the sidewalk next to the building. If you get here after 8:00 your child is tardy and you must park and sign your child in at the office.

Afternoon pick-up is very much like last year. There will be two lines, but those two lines will not start until after the gravel driveway on your right. This is in place so the traffic leaving can easily leave. When there are softball games, it is extremely difficult to get two cars down the street when cars park on the side of the road, so keeping the exit lane open the best we can will speed things up. Dismissal is at 3:10. Our teachers have a procedure to get kids out safely to your cars. Please have your car tag up so the teacher can see it. If you do not have a tag you must show Photo ID. Please be patient and stay in you vehicle at all times. If you need to buckle your child please pull up to the flagpole area and buckle. There is no parking in the middle from 2:45-3:30. This is for safety reasons. You cannot come to the doors at 3:10 trying to pick up your child you will need to drive through the line. This is because we have a procedure in place to keep kids safe and accounted for, and if you come up and take kids off the bench or ask for your child, you have disrupted the whole process. There are times when you need your child before 3:10 or you have an issue picking up. I ask that we communicate with each other with respect and understanding when situations like that occur, so we can do what is best for your child. There are 378 students at the elementary and over half of them get picked up. Please understand it will take time to get them all safely to your cars. We have been able to get all kids loaded by 3:35 each day.

We hope with you cooperation and support that as this year continues the drop-off and pick-up process will get smoother and more efficient each and every day.

Thanks for supporting a great school!

Friday Night Lights are finally back! Our Indians shined tonight versus Huntsville, AR and stood toe-to-toe with a formidable Stigler Panther squad. Be assured you want to be at Heavener next Thursday to watch this group of warriors battle.


Pocola Public Schools has been made aware of a non credible threat towards the district. After meeting with the admin team and conferring with the local authorities the situation has been handled. The district is safe!


What a great group of educators. Pocola Elementary students are blessed and lucky to have them in their lives.


Pocola Little League Football appreciates the “cool down” from our Fire Dept. Gotta love football season in SE Oklahoma.


Pocola Lady Indians open up the 2023 season with 2 win doubleheader. Alyssa Parker and Maci Maxwell both get W’s in the circle with each game ending in a run-rule. Way to go Ladies!


Pocola High School desires to express great appreciation for Mr. Andy Jones for providing delicious cinnamon rolls from Calico County for the HS staff.


Greetings parents. We are excited to start another year with the students of Pocola High School. I had an assembly this morning to cover topics to help facilitate a productive year that included arrival protocols for students that drive to and from campus, dress code, and conduct. Listed below is the policy that details what attire is considered inappropriate for school:

High School and Middle School – Discretion is given to the building administrators.
Shorts must be mid-thigh length.
Shoes must be worn at all times.
No torn or tattered clothing above the knee that exposes the skin.
No head coverings in the buildings.
Skirts/Dresses must be worn to the knee.
Sleeves are required on shirts.
No items with profane/repulsive language/pictures or advertisements of beer, whiskey, to***co, drugs, or other illegal items.
Appropriate fitting clothing will be required (too baggy or too tight is not acceptable).
Clothing must be worn that covers the stomach.
Distracting clothing, jewelry, or physical appearance will not be allowed. Body piercing is limited to ears and nose only. Piercing anywhere else must be totally covered.
Distracting appearance is at the discretion of the administrator
Yoga pants and/or Jeggings or pants that resemble leggings or yoga pants may be eliminated dependent on student adherence to appropriateness.
No pajama bottoms or tops.

Beginning tomorrow, students that are found in violation of district policy will be required to be brought appropriate clothing. This area of concern typically causes strong reactions. Please understand that I am simply enforcing the policy set forth by the local school board. I strongly suggest each parent and student take time to read through the student handbook provided by this link:

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's educational experience, you may contact me during operational hours at (918)436-2042, or at [email protected]

It is with great appreciation that I am able to announce that I will be serving the district as the principal of Pocola High School. As an alumnus, I am very proud to be an Indian, and have deep conviction to be a positive influence on students of this community and to ensure all students receive a relevant and applicable education that will equip them with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to be successful upon graduation. I will work diligently with the faculty to facilitate a successful and enjoyable academic year. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break which will come to an end soon. With that being said, I want to inform students of days and times to meet with myself and Mrs. Vincent for scheduling:
