Dear OC Community, This is Superintendent Jeff Smith with a quick update. Due to Burt County moving into the Red on the health dial, O-C schools will be taking additional precautionary measures. Starting on Monday, November 9th student lunch schedules will be rearranged to have elementary students eat in their classrooms and 7-12 students in a staggered schedule to have fewer students in the lunch room. Open lunch campus for students in grades 7-12 will be temporarily suspended until further notice. Students may bring their lunch or go home to eat with written permission. As a reminder, all students may eat a school breakfast and lunch at NO CHARGE for the entire school year. A complete list of changes may be found on the school website or going to the provided links. The changes are temporary but will be in place at least to the Thanksgiving Break on November 25th. Conditions will be evaluated each week to determine the best course of action. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate our way through the Covid Pandemic. Jeff Smith Please select the links below for details.

Dear O-C Community, I want to provide a few updates and clarifications to the current health situation at O-C. Burt County has moved to Red on the health dial. The health department has changed their original recommendations to schools. Instead of closing school in level Red, the new recommendation is to keep schools open if at all possible. There are several reasons for this change. For example, school is a controlled environment with established rules and protocols for masking, social distancing, and symptom monitoring. O-C schools will continue to stay open as long as we can safely meet our staffing requirements and the health department recommends we stay open. We will have a more detailed joint announcement from both the school and health department this afternoon. Superintendent Jeff Smith Oakland-Craig Public Schools

Burt County has moved to the Orange level on the most recent health dial. O-C Public Schools will operate in the orange for our COVID-19 protocols. To avoid exposure to outside sources during lunch, consideration is given to closing campus for lunch. If campus is closed during the lunch break, students would not be able to leave school grounds during lunch and all students would either bring food from home or eat at school. As a reminder, both breakfast and lunch at school are FREE to ALL students for the entire school year. The administration is going to wait another week to determine if a closed campus will be necessary and to give families time to make arrangements if they choose to have their child bring food from home. We will make a decision based on the latest information by November 6th on how to best proceed for our students.
