Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the El Reno Public School System is “hoping for the best but planning for the worst,” said Superintendent Craig McVay.

On Monday, as McVay waited for word that the State Department of Education would close all public schools at least until April 6, he said the health issue is by far the most talked about topic.

“It’s coronavirus, wall-to-wall,” McVay said.

Cities across the state and the nation have been scrambling to figure out how to best prevent the spread of the disease.
