Sapulpa Public Schools has made the decision to transition to Distance Learning for tomorrow in preparation for a winter storm that could bring freezing rain, sleet, and icy conditions to the Sapulpa area.
The National Weather services has issued a Winter Storm Warning for much of eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas from 6 AM Wednesday to 6 PM Thursday. Sleet and freezing rain accumulations will likely cause dangerous travel conditions and possible power outages.
“The safety of our students and staff is our first priority during such winter weather events,” the statement released by Sapulpa Schools this evening says. Read the full statement below.
Sapulpa Public Schools will transition to Distance Learning on Wednesday, February 23, due to a predicted winter storm for our area bringing sub zero wind chills, sleet, freezing rain and the potential for dangerous road conditions throughout the day.
Distance Learning will be in place for all students at all school sites. Students should log in on time and complete assignments using their Chromebooks.
The safety of our students and staff is our first priority during such winter weather events.
We will continue to monitor weather and driving conditions and will communicate any further closures as needed.
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
