Enid Public Schools’ Superintendent to Propose New COVID-19 Plan


(Enid, OK) The superintendent for Enid Public Schools plans to propose a new plan for the district’s COVID-19 protocols at Monday’s school board meeting regarding whether or not to move to distance learning beginning in the spring semester.

Superintendent Darrell Floyd will recommend that the district should no longer follow the Oklahoma State Department of Health Friday reports of new daily positive case averages that are determined on the seven-day average per 100,000 population in all 77 Oklahoma counties.

Enid Public Schools have been in distance learning since Nov. 16th, when Garfield County was reported to having 67.7 new daily cases per 100,000.

Masks will still required on campus and the district will continue to offer an all-virtual learning option, blended or distance learning for students in positive-case isolation or close-contact quarantine.

Students won’t return to class before the winter break since weekly case averages have remained above 50 in the county since Nov. 16th.

The board will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the district Administrative Services Center.
