According to OPS’ Health and Safety Newsletter, the students and staff need to be safe all times. The district wants to stop the spreading and wants the students to be at school so they can learn better. OPS said COVID-19 testing also continues as they take additional steps to support a successful return to in-person learning.
In order to so, the district must remain vigilant in the various school communities and beyond to ensure that the students continue to learn uninterrupted. Providing both options allows families to select a learning model that best meets their needs at the same time.
