OKLAHOMA CITY (Free Press) — Due to anticipated winter weather Friday, March 11, Oklahoma City Public Schools will have asynchronous, virtual learning from home.

Offices and school buildings will be closed and all staff will work from home.

The following information was sent out by OKCPS around 8 p.m. Thursday night:

ELEMENTARY families are encouraged to log-in for a short meeting with your child’s teacher sometime between 8:20 – 9:00am to discuss the day’s expectations and so the teacher can answer any questions you may have. Of course, you can always email your teacher as well.

MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL families will also have opportunities to check in with your child’s teachers. All assignments will be uploaded to your class Canvas page and Office Hours will be held at specific times during the day. See the chart below for when your teacher is available.
