OGR6 Plan of Action: Coronavirus (COVID 19)

Welcome Back to School Update 9-4-2020 

WELCOME BACK!  This is certainly a statement we have all been waiting to hear for months. From the Board of Education, Superintendent & Central Office Staff, Building Administrators, Teachers and Support Staff….we are so excited to welcome everyone back for the Panther 2020-2021 school year.

This time in our lives is providing an opportunity, more than ever before, where we will be working TOGETHER …. A time to come together as a community to make this a safe and successful reopening of school for everyone involved. The district will implement as many safety precautions as possible, including requiring masks, education on proper handwashing and hygiene, hand sanitizing stations for students, eliminating assemblies and organized large gatherings, and limited access to visitors in all buildings.

            As part of this process, our parents & guardians will be helping by checking their students each day for any signs of sickness before sending them to school.  Parents can also emphasize to their students how important it is to follow the guidelines at school to keep everyone safe, healthy and our buildings open.

            There are many recommended safety procedures that cannot be implemented in our current format of 4 school days per week. We can assure you that OGR6 will make every effort to minimize contact to COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. The safety, health and success of every student in the district is, and always will be, our number one priority.

            “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”  --Winston Churchill

Welcome Back to School Update 9-4-2020

7-31-2020 Update: 
Please refer often to our Re-Entry Plan for the 2020-21 School Year.  We will make updates to this document and send out important information as soon as we can.  

7-30-2020 Update:  
Panther Families,

The 2020 fall semester will resume on September 8th. The district’s plan is for both face to face instruction and virtual instruction with Oak Grove staff. If families would like to enroll through Launch as their online platform, that option is available also. 

As part of the registration process, in your parent portal, there is a required e-form for families to select for Oak Grove face to face instruction, Oak Grove Virtual instruction, or Launch virtual instruction. Please remember that if you choose either virtual instruction option, we ask you to commit to this for the entire first semester. If students were to start with virtual instruction and then choose to attend school, we could not adjust classes and safety protocols to account for these additional students. 

Students that choose to start with face to face instruction, may transfer to Oak Grove Virtual instruction during the semester. 

Launch students will complete the semester in accordance with the Launch school calendar.  Launch students will not be able to transfer out of Launch classes until after the fall semester. 

The E-form is a required document and you will need to make a selection on instructional preferences to complete the registration process. If you have already completed online registration, you will need to go to your parent portal and complete the E-form.

We have extended the registration deadline through August 7th. 

Please look for an updated school re-entry plan along with additional information this week. 

Thank you.
