November 23 & 24 Designated as Virtual Learning Days for K-12 Students

Oak Ridge Schools has made the decision to designate next Monday and Tuesday (November 23 and 24) as virtual instruction days for K-12 students. Teachers will be required to provide instruction from their classroom to their students who will be learning remotely from home. Building principals will soon share additional details about what these two days will look like for students. We are pleased to remind parents that our elementary students now have devices and will be able to use this opportunity to participate in true virtual learning. Students will resume their current schedules on Monday, November 30th.

Next week, Food Services will be offering drive thru meals at RMS (in the front entrance loop) Monday-Wednesday (23-25) from 11:00-12:15. They will be giving out both a Breakfast and a Lunch during those hours. Meals can be picked up for anyone 18 and under.

Preschool students will continue with their current schedule and will meet in person next week on November 23 and 24.

Again, it is our hope that you and your loved ones are and will remain healthy and safe while we all continue to address the challenges of COVID–19.

Because of this, we currently serve 78% of our student body in face-to-face instruction. We appreciate the teamwork observed in our Oak Ridge Schools community as we continue to overcome many obstacles together, working to make t
