SB)--District officials say Enid Public Schools is projected to receive $6.6 million more in federal COVID-19 pandemic relief, to be expended over two years. EPS CFO Sam Robinson told district Board of Education members Monday the federal stimulus package Congress approved last month would pay for one-time expenses such as face masks or cleaning supplies, rather than longer-term costs like adding personnel or pay raises. During his monthly update asking for mid-year board approval of EPS’ yearly budget, Robinson said the state allocated the district $1.4 million less than given at the initial mid-term allocation. This has resulted in an overall $2.5 million reduction from last year’s allocation. In other business Monday, board members approved paying a quarter million dollars to replace the video board at David Allen Memorial Ballpark. The district expects $100,000 in reimbursement from the ballpark.

All eight candidates in Enid’s regular ward elections have been invited to attend and will answer questions to be submitted by the public and chosen by members of the local media, who also will provide questions of their own. The forum will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of Stride Bank Center and is open to the public. Wards 3, 4 and 6 are up for election next month. A special recall election also will be held Feb. 9, but will not be included in the forum. Tables for participants and chairs for the public will be socially distanced, and face coverings will be required in the ballroom, as following city mandate.

VP)--The Oklahoma State Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal is now available for pre-registration. The department launched the COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal to notify Oklahomans when they’re eligible to receive the vaccine and provide more information on how to schedule an appointment. Oklahomans can visit this portal at vaccinate.oklahoma.gov, but appointment scheduling will not be available until Thursday. Health officials said currently only Oklahomans who are 65 and older, health care workers and/or first responders will be able to schedule appointments. As the state advances in its phased approach to vaccine distribution, the system will notify and allow individuals in additional priority groups and phases the opportunity to schedule their appointment.
