CAMERON, Oklahoma — The Cameron Public School District (CPSD) announced on Wednesday (Aug. 4) that the first day of school will be delayed.

"Due to unforeseen problems, our administration has made the decision to push our first day of school back to Monday (Aug. 9)," the CPSD posted.

Cameron School Superintendent John Long says the delay is due to having no water.

The school district's 'Meet-the-Teacher' event will take place as originally scheduled.

The CPSD says everyone will meet in the cafeteria from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Wednesday evening.

The archery meeting scheduled for 5:00 p.m. will be held in the cafeteria instead of the gym.

Due to the current spread of COVID-19, the school district is asking that only students and parents come to 'Meet-the-Teacher' to limit the amount of exposure and that everyone wear masks.
