UPDATE: Did you complete the form to receive a Chromebook for an elementary student?
Here is an update: The EPS IT team will begin making phone calls Sunday evening to families with your day and time that a Chromebook may be picked up. The pickup will take place next Monday through Thursday. Please be patient and respect our process so that we can all remain safe and healthy.
One Chromebook will be provided per family, if needed. Good news -- those who indicated they do not have WiFi access will also be able to pick up a hot spot!
When you come to the Administrative Services Center complex, located at 500 S. Independence, please use Washington Street from the north and turn on Park Ave. to access our drive. Only one entrance will be open. SEE MAP Thank you for your cooperation!
Dear EPS family:
Our administrators, teachers and instructional support staff are working hard to develop a continuous learning plan that will help our students finish the school year strong. As you can imagine, this planning has presented its own set of trials, as most of it has occurred digitally or at a distance so we can protect ourselves just as you are at home. We will meet the challenge, however, because that’s what we do as Plainsmen and Pacers. Our students deserve a learning plan that will help them grow academically this spring, and that is what we are determined to give them.
The last few weeks have made me even more proud to be the superintendent of Enid Public Schools. From “wave” parades in neighborhoods to free meals for students, this community has worked to provide children with basic needs, as well as lift their spirits. There’s nothing we can’t accomplish when we work together as a team.
We know you and your child have many questions about what the remainder of the school year will be like. The purpose of this letter is to share what we know and to ask for your assistance as we make this significant transition. A change of this magnitude will not occur without bumps in the road; however, with your help, I am confident we can offer the best services possible for our students.
We understand that, like the traditional classroom, this learning plan cannot be a one-size, fits-all-approach. We hope as you read the information listed in the sidebar you can see how we are working to help meet the needs of all students. While this is not how we expected to end the school year, we believe this plan will allow us to keep students on track, while also protecting what is most important – their health and well-being.
Schools are at their best when the community works together, and now is the perfect time for us to shine. You were and continue to be your child’s first and most important teacher. While our faculty and staff will be leading the way, we know you will be encouraging, supporting and teaching your child side-by-side with us.
We miss our students terribly, but are trying to make the best of the situation for everyone. Thank you for helping us rise to this challenge. We could not do it without you.
Dr. Darrell Floyd
