Virtual Learning and Snow Days
Winter weather conditions sometimes present problems and impact classes, bus routes, dismissal times and activities for Moore Public Schools. We make every attempt to notify families by 6 a.m. when a school cancellation decision is made.
Below is how the district makes school cancellation decisions and the communication sources we use to relay important information.
School cancellation decisions of any kind are made on a case-by-case basis after district officials assess the potential impact on district operations. MPS considerations include, but are not limited to, the items listed below, all of which could prevent students and staff from accessing a safe and meaningful learning environment:
- The anticipated impact to bus routes
- The impact to campus facilities including electricity, heat, water, internet, and child nutrition
- The possible impacts to staffing
MPS also considers how many banked minutes we have reserved to utilize for inclement weather days before the district would be required to make up instructional days/time as required by the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
Each year, Oklahoma students are required to complete 1,080 instructional hours. When we use virtual learning days during inclement weather, those hours are included in the required 1,080 instructional hours.
