Even as the coronavirus continues its deadly climb toward its peak, Muskogee Public Schools has announced it will reopen for in-person instruction on Aug. 31, a month from tomorrow.

Students, teachers and support staff will crowd back into schools for a later-than-usual start to the school years.

Parents who want to keep their children home during the pandemic can opt into the district’s e-learning program. If students are already enrolled in the district, parents can click here and complete the enrollment form there, said Steve Braun, spokesman for the schools.

The deadline to enroll students in the e-learning program is next Monday, Aug. 3.

In the coming weeks, an e-learning teacher will reach out to enrolled students.
