Thursday is the deadline for Oklahoma City Public School parents to weigh in on if they're ready for students to be in the classroom more than just two days a week.

The survey was sent out to OKCPS parents on Monday.

The district said the goal is to have survey result by the end of the week, so they can talk with health experts before making a decision.

Some parents have expressed frustration that students aren't back in the class full-time, but OKCPS sent out the survey to find out exactly how parents feel about full-time, in-person learning.

The main question is how many parents will send their child back to class full-time for the remainder of the school year.

Right now, there are just over 31,000 kids enrolled at OKCPS.

The district said the goal has always been to get children back in the classroom for additional in-person learning.

The OKCPS School Board is scheduled to meet Monday. The next meeting would not take place until March 22.
