‘Virtual Day’ to be held for ALL students Jan. 22, coursework to be completed at home
On Jan. 22, every Broken Arrow Public Schools student in grades Pre-K through 12 will experience a “virtual” school day while teachers participate in professional development sessions.
Students in Pre-K through seventh grade will receive an assignment for each content area, and students in grades 8 through 12 will utilize their Google Chromebooks to finish required assignments. All assignments are expected to be completed at home.
“Last year, we successfully held a virtual day for our high school students, and we wanted to pilot one for the entire district,” said Associate Superintendent of Instructional Services Karla Dyess. “We are hoping that if we ever need to utilize a virtual day instead of a snow day, we will be successful and ready.”
High school buses will not run, with the exception of Tulsa Technology Center (TTC) and Northeastern State University (NSU) buses. TTC and NSU students will still be required to attend classes on their respective campuses.
In addition, in-season sports (basketball, swimming and wrestling) will continue to hold scheduled games and practices. Other varsity sports may hold practice at the discretion of the coaches. Off-season middle school sports will NOT hold practice.
Fine arts activities will be held as scheduled. Program directors will communicate with students as necessary.
Detailed information will be provided by your child’s school site in the coming months.
