START OF SCHOOL SCHEDULE STUDENT SCHEDULE
*We will update families the week of August 24th on plans following Labor Day weekend.*
RETURN TO LEARN PROTOCOLS & PROCEDURES
The procedures and protocols contained in the BPS Return to Learn Guide are designed to facilitate the reopening of Bixby Schools while reducing the potential impact of the COVID-19 virus on the health and welfare of BPS students and employees. These guidelines are based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OKSDE), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and state and local health agencies. Regular updates will be made to this plan based on updated information provided by these organizations as well as local factors which may arise after the resumption of school operations.
Suffice it to say, this will be a challenging few months for everyone associated with Bixby Schools. As a district, we are committed in doing all we can to provide a consistent and normal educational experience for our students. In drafting these procedures and protocols, we have attempted to be considerate of the varying levels of comfort and concerns expressed by families and staff. It is difficult to provide “best answers” to many of the questions related to this pandemic since no one is certain of how it will progress in our community once schools reopen. Given this uncertainty, our BPS COVID Response team will confer on a daily basis to evaluate current conditions in our schools and adapt our plans as needed. In making these decisions, the advice of medical professionals and local health agencies will be followed wherever feasible. We understand the vital need for consistent communication and will strive to work closely with our employees and families to respond in ways which are in the best interests of all.
