Remote learning will continue for all students Thursday and Friday, February 18-19. Lessons will be in Canvas and students should complete them at their own pace. All district-sponsored activities have been canceled as well.

Although most major roadways are clear, neighborhoods are expected to remain slick and hazardous due to sustained, below-freezing temperatures. In addition, although EPS crews are working hard to clear school parking lots, sidewalks, and entrances, there is still more to do to ensure that staff and students can enter buildings safely when the time comes to return to school.

Unfortunately, some of our schools did have pipes burst and we are working to clean and restore those facilities.

What if I don’t have Internet or Power?

We are aware that families and staff may be experiencing internet, power, and/or water outages. We ask that students simply do their best to log in and complete assignments if and when they can. As always, there is no requirement for students to complete work during typical school hours.

All district schools and most offices including the district office will be closed and EPS staff will be working from home on Thursday and Friday. Since schools and some offices will not be able to answer phones, we ask that our families use email or the parent portal to connect with school staff.

Curbside Meals Continue

Staff is prepared to serve curbside meals at Summit Middle School, Cimarron Middle School, Sunset Elementary School, Ida Freeman Elementary School and John Ross Elementary School. Other schools may be added as staffing allows. Please monitor the EPS Child Nutrition website for updates.

District officials will continue to keep you updated as needed through our normal communication platforms.
