Distance Learning  

On rare occasions, Orange County Public Schools may need to close schools due to health, weather or another safety emergency. In the event of a long term closure where students do not report to school, the district will engage in distance learning with students and staff. OCPS will make every effort to ensure that instructional continuity is not disrupted by continuing to provide educational opportunities at home using all available district resources to engage in distance learning.
