SC)--Enid Public Schools will be virtual/remote learning Thursday and Friday as a result of the icy, slick conditions. All non-classroom activities have been cancelled for the remainder of the week. A number of other area school districts also have canceled classes and are conducting online instruction. Even colder weather and additional chances for snow are in the forecast for the weekend and early next week.

TV)--Voters in City of Enid Wards 3, 4 and 6 elected their commissioners Tuesday. Keith Siragusa, Whitney Roberts and Scott Orr will be joining the Enid City Commission during its first meeting in May. In Ward 3, Siragusa received 64% of the vote. In a three-way race in Ward 4, Roberts received 68% of the vote. And, in a three-way race in Ward 6, Orr received nearly 55% of the vote. Voter turnout was down, but over 1,000 people cast ballots in the three wards despite the slick, bitter cold conditions.

 

Also on Tuesday, Waukomis Public Schools patrons narrowly approved a nearly $7.4 million bond issue, the largest the district has ever proposed. The measure passed with 60.19% of the vote. School bond issues require a 60% super-majority to pass. If one yes vote cast had been a no vote, the issue would have fallen below the 60% required. The bulk of the bond issue, about 90%, will fund the construction of a new elementary school and adjoining cafeteria and kitchen. The remaining bond funds will be used for sports facility upgrades, upgraded safety equipment, and upgrades for the band.

VP)--The Oklahoma State Department of Health COVID-19 vaccine scheduler portal is 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.
