As Oklahoma City's public schools gear up for the first day of classes, district officials say they expect the first day to go smoothly, despite a few changes.
Students head back to school Wednesday, and some will be going to class at different schools.
West Nichols Hills Elementary students will begin the year at Greystone Upper Elementary School, three miles north of West Nichols Hills, district officials said last week. West Nichols Hills is undergoing major renovations as part of the MAPS for Kids project.
West Nichols Hills Principal Gloria Anderson alerted parents to the change in a letter last week.
“Unfortunately, due to the state of the renovations, our school will not be safe nor offer enough classroom space in time for the first day of school,” Anderson said.
The school's 360 students are expected to return to their own campus sometime during the fall semester.
Anderson and school employees will host an informal meeting from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Greystone Upper Elementary, 2401 NW 115 Terrace, where parents can meet the teachers and find out more information.
