All eighth grade students at an Oklahoma City middle school were sent home to quarantine after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.
In a letter posted to FD Moon Middle School’s official website, school officials said on Wednesday, Oklahoma City Public Schools officials learned that a teacher or instructional staff member who works with eighth grade students at FD Moon Middle School has tested positive for COVID-19.
Out of an abundance of caution and while officials continue to conduct their site-level contact tracing, all eighth grade students have been asked to quarantine at home, school officials said in the letter to the community.
All eighth graders at FD Moon are asked to plan to log into Canvas for synchronous learning at home for the rest of the week. Synchronous instruction means that students will receive live instruction from their teacher or teachers.
“Unless you are contacted by school officials who have confirmed that you are a close contact, these students should plan to return to campus for in-person learning on Monday, Aug. 23,” officials said in the letter.
Curbside meal service will be provided for eighth grade students beginning Thursday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., and families are encouraged to drive-thru and pick up breakfast and lunch at no cost for the students.
