SB)--Enid Public Schools Board of Education welcomed a new member Monday night during its regular monthly meeting, while the district finished its first day of distance learning. The Rev. Joe Blackwood was appointed to fill former board member Willa Jo Fowler’s No. 4 seat. Fowler stepped down last month after moving out of her district. During his report, Superintendent Darrell Floyd discussed the district’s re-entry plan, which prompted EPS students to leave in-person learning for the first time since March as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students will return to school Nov. 30, the Monday after Thanksgiving, if Friday’s report shows the county below 50 cases again. Oklahoma State Department of Health’s risk level report on Friday showed Garfield County averaged 67.6 new cases a day per 100,000 the prior week — a jump from 35.8 the Friday before.

 

 The district is providing free daily meals to students this week, but won’t be next week. Hot spots for WiFi also are available from the district. While all students began distance learning from home on Monday, 630 students and staff, 7.42% of the district, are at home affected by COVID-19, with 588 in close-contact quarantine and 42 in isolation after testing positive.

 

In other business, Floyd said the virtual grand opening for Enid High’s gym/performing arts center is set for Dec. 4, the night of the season-opening basketball games. The event will be live-streamed on EPStv, YouTube and Facebook.
