Following suit with a number of other school districts in the area, Sapulpa Public Schools has made the decision to transition all students on all sites to distance learning for the remainder of the week.
Citing increased absences among students and staff due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, the school system has made the decision to transition starting tomorrow, Wednesday, January 12th, and lasting through Friday, January 14th. Students will also be out the following Monday for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so classes are expected to resume on Tuesday, the 18th.
Athletic activities are expected to continue as planned, but the schools are asking that attendees check for changes prior to the event.
See the full statement below.
Dear Sapulpa families,
Throughout the day, the number of absences among students and staff due to COVID-19 and other illnesses has increased. As a result, Sapulpa Public Schools will transition to Distance Learning for all school sites for the rest of the week, Wednesday, January 12 through Friday, January 14.
School will not be in session on Monday, January 17 to mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. In-person instruction is expected to resume on Tuesday, January 18.
This transition to Distance Learning includes all students. They should be prepared with Chromebooks and other equipment and information required for Distance Learning. If you need assistance, contact your school site. For technical assistance, call 918-216-5000.
Distance Learning handbooks and meal pickup information can be found online on the district website at http://sapulpaps.org/district/distancelearning.
Activities and athletics events will go on as scheduled, but please check for changes prior to the event.
The district has never experienced a combination of reported contagious illnesses such as this in the past, and the health and safety of our students and staff are top of mind in this move to Distance Learning. Sapulpa Public Schools appreciates your continued support as we monitor the rapidly changing situation.
Updates will be available online at sapulpaps.org and our social media platforms. We will let you know as soon as possible if the Distance Learning protocol changes.
If you need to update your contact information or have additional questions, contact your child’s school.
