Hofmeister remarks on Gov. Stitt's investment in PPE for schools, students

OKLAHOMA CITY (July 30, 2020) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister made the following remarks today after Gov. Stitt announced Oklahoma is using $10 million in COVID-19 relief funds to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) to public schools throughout the state.

“It is critical that every effort be made for our kids and teachers to return to school, and the evidence is clear that face masks – along with face shields, gloves and gowns – are crucial for that to happen. COVID-19 has created difficult decisions that require schools to offer families a number of instructional delivery options that best meet their needs. We thank Gov. Stitt and his team for their work in helping to provide PPE to our schools.“
