EDMOND, Okla. -

The Board of Education and the Edmond Public Schools superintendent unveiled the district’s plan to operate in the fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic on Monday.

In a virtual meeting, Superintendent Bret Towne described the plan and said it would be posted to the district website Tuesday morning.

“We plan to start school normally, in class, face-to-face,” Towne said.

Towne and board members all said the plan, like the pandemic, is fluid, and subject to change throughout the year. In it, masks are required for teachers and staff, as well as all middle and high school students. Also, anyone who rides a school bus will be required to wear a face covering.

The board also approved schedule changes for all grades.

The district’s back to school plan is available on its website.
