Moore ends school year early

Moore Public Schools will be closed Wednesday and Thursday, the last days of the school year.

The decision was made after Moore Superintendent Susan Pierce consulted with state schools Superintendent Janet Barresi, a Moore Public Schools spokeswoman said.

However, seniors are asked to go to their respective high schools between 10 a.m. and noon Thursday to meet with principals about graduation.

Graduations for all three high schools are still set for Saturday at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City. The times are 9:30 a.m. for Westmoore; 2 p.m. for Southmoore; and 6 p.m. for Moore.

Also, students at other schools can visit their schools from 10 a.m. to noon to visit with teachers and administrators as an optional way to close out the school year.
