The challenge of the century
First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we, as a nation and community, responded to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19 in March. I am very proud of the way our oxford students, parents, employees, and community leaders handled the demands we were faced with to protect every one as we continued to educate and feed our students during the most unusual of circumstances.
As you know, there continues to be concerns and questions related to how schools plan to reopen in 2020. Our first priority is the safety of our students and our employees, Be assured, we have been working diligently on our OPS 2020 Smart Restart Plans. Due to all the factors and information needed to plan as COVID-19 issue unfold, the comprehensive Smart Restart Plan is being communicated to you through this letter.
Our desire is to return to school as normal(traditional)with enhanced safety and cleaning procedures that can be taken at every location, we are working on various scenarios like Enhanced traditional plan, social distancing/Hybrid plan and full distance learning plan-
we would continue school as normal with enhanced safety precautions in place such as increased hand sanitizer availability, increased frequency of cleaning of high touch area, increased hand wash facilities, limited visitation to campus, daily fumigation, social distancing (6-feet) face – to – face instructions with increased safety and disinfecting measures etc. in order to possibly prevent the transition to a full distance learning option where all students would participate in learning of new material, interactive lessons, graded assignments and assessments.
Everyone must understand our priority is to keep everyone safe while not making life more difficult for our parents. We fully understand your varied concerns about health and safety for which we are working day – in and day – out our goal is to find the best way to have our students safely in our school buildings as frequently as possible to ensure the health and well-being of all.
As we continue the OPS 2020 Smart Restart Planning process phase -1, we are starting offline classes for grade X as per the time table attached.
Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for all of our students and employees during these challenging times.
