OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma City Public Schools‘ superintendent announced a plan to return Pre-K and Kindergarten students to campus, as well as small groups of students who had already returned to campus.
OKCPS leadership reviewed their Return to Campus Plan to determine whether it is safe to re-open buildings for all students, according to Dr. Sean McDaniel, OKCPS Superintendent.
School officials reviewed multiple data points and had conversations with public health partners.
Upon those actions, they released the following plan:
