Oklahoma City School District officials announced Tuesday that Roosevelt Middle School will not open with the rest of the district's buildings Wednesday.
A delay in obtaining permits for portable buildings at the school — buildings that are necessary due to ongoing construction at the school — caused officials to push back opening day to Monday.
School officials said they are working with the Oklahoma City Fire Department and the on-site construction company to gain clearance to occupy the building.
They said any change in plans would be communicated through phone calls to parents and messages posted at the school.
Last week, school leaders announced that classes would not start on time at West Nichols Hills Elementary School. In that situation, also brought on by construction delays, students were moved three miles to Greystone Upper Elementary School so they could begin classes on time.
School district officials said moving Roosevelt students to another building is not an option because there are more than 1,000 students and there is no suitable place to accommodate them.
