OPS Return to School Roadmap
As we continue to develop our return to school plans, we want to provide families with one place to view information. Please know there may continue to be unanswered questions related to guidelines established by the State of Michigan for the 2020-2021 school year. As critical information becomes available, please bookmark this website for updates.
For broad details about our return to school plan, please review the website from our OPS Virtual Town Hall. For specific information about your child(ren)'s school, please contact the main office or email the principal.
What will learning at home look like?
All K-12 students should expect to be learning for the full school day and will receive live real-time instruction throughout their day. In addition to live instruction, students will also have access to small group instruction, activities with their classmates, and meaningful individual support from their teacher for the remainder of the school day. See elementary table/PPT slides and secondary table/PPT slides to learn more about how we have improved the at-home learning experience for the new year.

Oak Park Advantage
The Oak Park Advantage is a holistic approach to education that not only prepares students academically, fosters a sense of belonging but creates long-lasting connections to the Oak Park community. While attending Oak Park Schools, students develop a confidence that is woven throughout their post-secondary, professional and social-emotional well-being years after they graduate.
