Last day of class for all Oklahoma City schools but one
OKLAHOMA CITY – Freedom is just one day away for students in Oklahoma City.
Today is the last day of class for the state’s largest district.
An abundance of snow days forced the entire district to tack on a few extra days to the school year.
However, one OKC middle school will be in session through Thursday.
In a letter sent out to parents, Taft Middle School Principal Charmaine Johnson explains because of construction delays at the beginning of the school year, students started a week late in August.
Originally the district said those days would not have to be made up however, state law requires those hours to be made up forcing classes to continue at Taft Middle School through June 5.
Johnson emphasized attendance will be taken and the additional days will operate as a normal school day.
Tomorrow is the first day of summer vacation for most of those students but the district is already looking ahead to next year.
Fall 2014 enrollment for both new and returning students starts tomorrow during regular schools hours.
The next school year officially starts Aug. 4
