November 20, 2020 – The following is all important information – please read everything carefully. Thank you!

*Please note that next week, November 23-27, is Thanksgiving break and there will be no instruction for any EPS students.

As you likely know, Garfield County is reported to have 72.5 cases per 100,000 people today. According to the decision-making model recommended by the State Board of Education that EPS is using, this means our county continues to be in level red on the OSSBA map. Our district plan states that we will implement distance/virtual learning for two weeks as of the Friday the numbers indicate our county is in level red. Therefore, we will continue with distance/virtual learning when we return from Thanksgiving break on November 30. Again, due to the high level of COVID-19 cases in our county and per our board-approved plan, we will have distance/virtual learning November 30 through December 4. Thanksgiving break is November 23 through 27th and no instruction will occur that week for any EPS students.

If Garfield County reverts back to Level Orange on November 27, some varsity level extracurricular activities can resume (with limited restrictions) that next week (November 30-December 4).

About Distance Learning
Our team worked very hard this summer to prepare for this school year, including the possibility that distance learning would be temporarily necessary. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have questions about this process. If you do not have access to appropriate technology or the internet, please contact the EPS Information Technology Department at (580) 366-7070.  If there are items at your child’s school that you need to retrieve, please call the school site to schedule a time to safely pick those items up.

Please note: EPS will be in communication with families regarding when students may return to school for in-person instruction. Our plan states that if our county is in level red as noted by the model the state board of education is using, that automatically puts our district in distance/virtual learning for two weeks. As it stands right now, the earliest date for in-person instruction would be Monday, December 7.

There is nothing more important to Enid Public Schools than the safety and health of our students and staff. We appreciate your cooperation and support.

Meal Services – now serving FREE breakfast and lunch!

Central Kitchen will be closed for Thanksgiving break, November 23-27, and will not distribute meals that week. They look forward to continuing to serve families on Monday, November 30.

Enid Public Schools Child Nutrition Department will continue to provide meals to families during the week of November 30-December 4. There are three options available to families to pick up meals:

  • Families can drive through the pick-up line located between the Central Kitchen (519 S. Washington) and the Administrative Services Center (500 S. Independence); or
  •  Pick up meals at Waller Middle School (2604 W. Randolph)
  • Pick up meals at Garfield Elementary (400 N 7th)
  • In order to help with social distancing and to keep everyone safe, meals will be set out on table and patrons will be asked to get out of their vehicle and pick them up.


Meals will be available for pick up between the hours of 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. for each student in your household under the age of 18. Please have students in the car with you for meal pick-up.
