MOORE, Okla. -

Moore Public School students will start their first day of school Thursday either inside the classroom, online, or a mixture of the two.

If a student has a 100 degree fever, they are not allowed inside the schools and will need to be picked up immediately.

The district said seventh through 12th grade will be required to wear masks all day. Fourth through sixth grade can take them off inside the classroom. Masks are required on buses district wide.

Pre-kindergarten through second grade students going completely online through the system Canvas have to commit to 9-weeks of online learning.

Third through 12th grade students doing online learning will go through the system Odysseyware. They are required to commit to a full semester. They’ll both have 24/7 online access, supervised by Virtual Academy staff, certified by Moore Public Schools.

“When making the decisions based on 25,000 plus students over 2,500 employees and almost 48,000 parents… it gets daunting and task oriented,” said Superintendent Robert Romines. “We’re doing our best to make sure we make the best decisions possible.”
