• The School Board also agreed to seek a waiver from the state to allow local discretion regarding the start of school, based on local data. The start date is, tentatively, Monday, August 10, for all students online using LaunchEd@Home. Face-to-face students will transition to the campus on Friday, August 21. This is the emergency order from the state.

• The district is currently doing a parent registration form for each child. Parents must select one of the three models or describe how their child is receiving their education (aka: home school, private school, etc.) The Choice Registration Form is now available and will be open until Friday, July 24. It is available in multiple languages through Google translate and the website can be translated by selecting the language tab at the top of the home page. Please keep in mind all plans are fluid and we will keep you informed of future adjustments. Here is the link to the form.

• To maximize safety efforts, parents are encouraged to select the OCPS LaunchEd@Home, if able to keep their child at home.
