9/30/2020 Message from McDaniel: Return to Campus Plan Udpate

OKCPS Families and Staff, 

Today, as promised, OKCPS leadership came together to review our Return to Campus Plan and to determine whether it is safe to re-open our buildings for all students. 
Based on our continuous review of multiple data points, as well as conversations with our public health partners, OKCPS has made the decision to:  
  • Proceed with the plan to bring back PK and K on October 19 in an A/B setting provided we transition back to Orange Level 1
  • Bring back small groups of students who had already returned to our campuses. This will include; 
    • Resume 90-minute (optional) curricular and co-curricular afterschool activities as of October 5
    • Resume all high school athletics and extracurricular activities on October 5
    • Resume in-person instruction for students with special needs who were in a self-contained classroom on October 19
    • Resume the OKCPS Children in the Workplace program on October 19
  • Bring all district staff back to work 5 days a week in-person on October 19
  • Continue with our plan to bring 1st - 12th grade students back for in-person learning in an A/B setting at the start of the 2nd 9-weeks on November 9

As always, the health and safety of our students and staff is our priority and we are grateful for your continued flexibility and patience.

Stay safe, everyone.
Dr. Sean McDaniel
