CPS COVID19 Update #5
After meetings with the administration and a conference call with the State Department of Education, here is today’s update.
We are working on a google form to be sent out so parents can order breakfast and lunch for a week at a time, starting next week. Meals will be picked up at the cafeteria from 10-12 daily. If you have a problem getting to the pick up, we have volunteers that will deliver. All students enrolled are eligible for meals. This form will be out by tomorrow and will need to be completed by noon on Thursday.
Next Monday, the elementary and high school office will be open from 9-12 for pick up of medications that might have been left at the school. Please call ahead and it will be ready for you. On Wednesdays, there will be someone in the elementary and high school for phone calls and questions. No entry into the schools but the ability to talk by phone to an administrator to ask questions. The Superintendent’s office will be taking all calls from 9-12 Monday through Thursday starting Monday, March 23rd.
For the next two weeks, there will be NO academics or activities. Prom will be rescheduled to a time when the CDC permits large group activities. All closings will be re-evaluated by the SDE at the March State School Board Meeting. No one will be in the school buildings except cafeteria staff and business managers for the remainder of the extended spring break.
We will not have to make up the days of the extended break.
There are so many moving parts of this situation that I encourage you to ask questions in the comments. By utilizing this resource, we can cover most of the unknowns. Daily updates around three each day.
There is a special board meeting tomorrow to discuss this ever changing situation and an employee Zoom call tomorrow at 3. Everyone stay home, wash hands and stay up to date with the latest changes at www.coronavirus.health.ok.gov.
Prayers welcome and being said for you and your families,
