2 OKCPS Schools Return To Virtual Learning

Thursday, January 20th 2022, 6:15 am

Just one day after returning to in-person learning, two Oklahoma City schools are switching back to virtual learning because of staffing shortages.

Starting Thursday, any student who attends the Taft Middle School Linwood campus and all students from Mary Golda Ross Middle School will be going back to remote learning.

So far, that directive is just for today. The district said parents should be watching for more details from their child's school. All other OKCPS schools are doing in-person learning today.

If you are a student or staff member at OKCPS they do have testing available.

The school system also announced they are offering a new tutoring service for free. 

Something that may be much-needed, as students try to navigate studies while moving between in-person and virtual learning.

All OKCPS students will be able to access TutorMe’s online 24/7 tutoring service for the 2021-2022 school year.

According to the district, this new service has more than 15,000 tutors available at any time to help with more than 300 subjects.

The service will provide immediate expertise whenever and wherever students need it.

Whether it’s homework help or a study session, students can pair up with a private tutor for a personalized 1-on-1 lesson.

Over in Mustang, students at Prairie View elementary have one more day of remote learning.

For those students, meal pick-up is available from 10:30 Thursday morning to 12:30 p.m. on the east side of the school. 

All Edmond Public School Students should be back in the classroom.
