Dear EPS families:


Today, the State Department of Health reported that Garfield has reverted back to “Yellow Level” for positive COVID-19 cases (on a rolling 7-day average). This means that our county is now in the “Low Risk” category, defined by the OSDH. Guidelines for school districts being in the Yellow Level include:


  • In-person instruction expected
  • Masks required for teachers/staff
  • Masks required for all students
  • Pre-k thru 3rd grade students may remove masks in class
  • Visitors restricted
  • Follow all health orders and protocols, and adhere to district policies (screenings, distancing, handwashing)
  • Building and campuses strongly recommended to limit public events.


As a result of returning to Yellow, EPS will conduct in-person instruction for ALL students who have chosen that optionfor the first 7 days of instruction (August 13-21).


Also, at our August 17th school board meeting we will look at the possibility of making revisions to our current plan that, if approved, would:  provide more flexibility, provide longer periods of time for parents to plan ahead more appropriately - with more advanced notice (rather than a week at a time), and would take effect on August 24th.


You can find a map of Oklahoma counties that is updated to reflect COVID-19 cases every Friday at You will also find definitions of what the different levels mean with additional resources.


Thank you for your cooperation and for your support of Enid Public Schools.

Dr. Darrell Floyd, Superintendent
