Norman Public Schools to engage in remote learning Wednesday, Feb. 23
WHAT TO KNOW
Due to forecasted inclement weather, all schools will transition to remote learning Wednesday, Feb. 23.
Additionally, all school activities Wednesday are canceled.
Decisions for the rest of the week will be communicated as soon as possible Wednesday.
We are in close contact with our partners at the National Weather Service in Norman and at Weather Decision Technologies. Forecasts call for winter precipitation to begin Wednesday morning with conditions deteriorating throughout the day.
As a result, all schools will engage in remote learning Wednesday, Feb. 23. Additionally, all school activities Wednesday are canceled. Coaches and sponsors will be in touch with their individual groups and teams with details.
Recently, during our last winter storm, we communicated that as a district we have just one snow day remaining. With frigid temperatures and further precipitation expected later in the week we believe it is best to engage in remote learning Wednesday and save our final remaining snow day for further closures, interruptions or potential power outages later in the week.
We understand that remote learning can pose difficulties for some students and families. It is important to note that while we work diligently to ensure remote learning provides students with engaging and enriching learning experiences and opportunities, we understand every student’s situation is different. We can assure you that no student will be penalized for circumstances outside their control. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to your student’s teacher or principal directly.
We know how important it is for parents to have as much information as possible and be able to plan. We will make a determination for Thursday and communicate to parents as early as possible on Wednesday. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please stay safe and warm in the coming days.
