Please, Please, Please ... be respectful of our handicap parking spaces at Francis Wyman. We have numerous students and parents who need accessibility to our school, and these parking spaces give them proximity to doors and the space they need. This has become a problem particularly during afterschool and evening activities. Thank you for respecting those with handicap placards.

On October 22, 1889, 50,000 people lined up for their piece of Oklahoma land. The Homestead Act of 1862 allowed settlers to claim lots as big as 160 acres, provided they lived on the land and improved it. Check out the Francis Wyman reenactment here:
