Oklahoma City Public Schools is taking the first step to reopen campuses across the district.
On Monday, the district said teachers will be allowed to go back into the schools to bag up each students belongings, label them, then put them aside for families to pick up next week.
OKCPS said teachers will also take this time to bring back any district property they may have taken home to finish out the school year online, like technology devices, keys, and badges.
This Friday and Thursday, the district said school nurses will be allowed back into the buildings to throw out expired medication and gather up student medicine.
The district said parents can start picking up their student’s stuff starting on Tuesday, May 26th. OKCPS said schools will have limited staff members working those days.
The district said families will need to wait in their cars in the student pick-up areas in front of the buildings. Teachers will deliver all the items from kids’ desks and lockers to each car in a labeled bag.
Students are expected to give the district back some items as well, like uniforms, equipment and instruments.
The district said Middle and High School students need to label clean uniforms in a bag with their name, grade and sport.
Officials said staff should be prepared to give out extra bags if a student needs one.
The district said students who won’t be returning to OKCPS will be able to return technology equipment to the school where they are enrolled, and the Library Media Specialist will check them in.
