Metro Tech is communicating with public school leaders to accommodate their schedules so students receive uninterrupted learning.
The safety of students, teachers, and staff continue to be first priority. Metro Tech’s Superintendent, Aaron Collins said, “We are in unusual times as we navigate through our new normal during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a district, we have worked with the Oklahoma City County Health Department, and the Oklahoma State Department of Health in creating, and implementing Safe at Work protocols and procedures.” Collins continued, “We will do the same as we create Safe at School protocols. It is important in these times to keep safe, clean, and calm.”
A customized Return to School Plan is being created for students and students about transportation, social distancing, safety measures, and other items relating to the return to school.
It is important for students and families to know that return to school planning adjustments will occur as the pandemic situation progresses. As decisions and adjustments are made, information will be updated at www.metrotech.edu and Metro Technology Centers’ Facebook page. We will continue to work closely with local, state, and national health officials for their recommendations.
Should Metro Tech move to online learning, students enrolled will be contacted to determine technology and internet needs. Metro Tech also has the ability to shift classes and programs to online learning should a student or teacher be exposed to the virus.
