  • Okemos Public Schools (OPS) will be 100% online while we are in Phase 4 of the MI Safe Start Plan. The district will remain in this model until our area reaches Phase 5. 

    During Phase 4, OKC will be offering full-day care to Begindergarten through 8th-grade children during the scheduled online learning time in Okemos. This program will be held at Edgewood from 7:15 AM - 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Students will be grouped into cohorts of 11 students based on grade level and will remain in their assigned group throughout a given day, and for the duration of the program, to ensure safety. Staff and students are required to wear face coverings.

    Registration is first come-first served. We will take a waiting list if rooms fill to capacity.
