Project Update: Splash Pad and Playground

We are waiting to hear back on our grant application that would fund 50% of the cost to build a splash pad, playground, restrooms, and picnic area on the east side of Eufaula. We hope to hear back from the State of Oklahoma by the end of the year on this exciting project!

Our community has already started stepping up to support this project, with over $100,000 pledged!

Outbreak of COVID-19 cases forces switch to distance learning for High School

For the next couple of weeks Eufaula High School students will be attending classes at home.
The School Board voted Monday to switch to distance learning at Eufaula High School due to a spike in the number of students and staff there that have tested positive for COVID-19 or come in contact with someone who has tested positive.
The distance learning protocol will continue from Nov. 11 until Thanksgiving break. Students will return to in-person learning on Monday, Nov. 30.

The exact numbers of students in all schools affected by the virus includes:
- at the high school two staff members and 47 students are out. One staff member and three students tested positive.
- at the middle school, four staff members are out and three students. One staff person tested positive.

Wesley Godwin, 39, a former resident of Checotah, died Tuesday, Oct. 27, at the scene of a two-vehicle accident on Interstate 40 about five miles east of Warner.

According to the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, at about 6:30 a.m. Godwin, whose address is listed as Ft. Gibson, was eastbound on the interstate in a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 when for an unknown reason he ran into the rear of a 2012 Freightliner driven by Tai Ngoc Nguyen, 51, of Santa Ana, California.

The OHP listed the cause of the accident as speeding.
