Third Quarter Changes

The Oxford Preparatory School (OPS) Board of Directors approved operational updates for the third quarter at their regular meeting on November 12. After review of current academic performance, current executive orders, COVID data within the school, community, and across the state, the OPS board voted unanimously to the following changes. 

Beginning on Monday, January 4 with the start of the third quarter:

  • The full-time remote learning option will only be available for students that are medically fragile or that earned passing grades for the first semester in at least 75% of their classes (including math and English language arts).
  • Kindergarten through 5th grade will continue to operate in plan A with full school days on Monday through Thursday.
  • All students will continue remote learning on Fridays.
  • 6th grade will continue on the current plan B schedule until allowed by the governor to operate on plan A as long as we can provide two weeks’ notice to families.
  • The upper school (7th through 12th grade) will continue with the current plan B schedule. If an updated executive order would be issued providing a less restrictive option, the OPS Board could consider that possible change.

We acknowledge that changes during these uncertain times are not easy. However, we are committed to continue to maintaining safety for our students, staff, and families as we work towards our goal of the return of all students learning on campus every day. We plan to create and send families an application that would like to continue with remote learning during the 3rd quarter. After remote learning applications are processed, an appeals opportunity will be provided for students that didn’t meet the established criteria.

Oxford Prep Music Booster’s 2020 Annual Fresh Fruit Sale

Due to COVID-19, our annual fruit sales will be a little different. This year we will be selling online only. This will allow for the safety of the student and you, the buyer. Our e-commerce will allow you to place your order online, pay with a credit/bank card, and we will ship items directly to you or a designated address. 

There are many schools in the state of North Carolina who have chosen to proceed with this fundraiser in this same manner. Safety is our utmost concern. 

Please see our fresh fruit sale flyer for complete online ordering instructions. Thank you for your continued support as we continue to raise monies to facilitate the needs of our music program.
