On Jan. 22, every Broken Arrow Public Schools student in grades Pre-K through 12 will experience a “virtual” school day, and teachers will 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.

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. 

Below is detailed information for each grade level. For more information, please contact your child’s school site or teacher.

Grades Pre-K through 5

  • Pre-K Assignments: Pre-K students will be provided with a number of Virtual Day activities on Friday, Jan. 18, from their teacher. These activities may include items such as “draw three things that begin with the letter C” or “count to 20.” All assignments can be completed at home with materials from their house or with paper that can be placed in their backpacks.
     
  • Elementary Assignments: Elementary students will be provided with assignments on Friday, Jan. 18 for all core areas that have been created by a team of teachers from across the district. All assignments can be completed at home with materials from their house or with paper that can be placed in their backpacks.
     
  • Attendance: Teachers will email parents on the morning of Jan. 22. Once parents respond to the email, this will count as the student being present. Teachers will print off a class list so they can mark students as absent or present. If parents do not respond, a letter from the district will be sent home on Jan. 23 to the students whose parents did not respond. Parents will sign, and students must return the letter to school. This will count as their attendance. (These methods of taking attendance have been approved by our district’s State Accreditation officer.)

Grades 6 and 7

  • Assignments: 6th and 7th grade students will receive a hard copy of the assignments and each site will post a copy on their website.
     
  • Attendance: Attendance will be taken by students turning in their completed assignments on Jan. 23, the day following Virtual Day.  

Grade 8

  • Assignments: 8th grade students will download their assignments prior to leaving school on Friday, Jan. 18.  Students will be able to complete work on Canvas and save their work. If students do not have access to Wi-Fi, they can submit the work once they log on to school Wi-Fi. Students who have submitted their Chromebook for repair will have a loaner provided to them for Virtual Day.
     
  • Attendance: Attendance will be taken by the submission of assignments.

Grades 9 through 12

  • Assignments: Teachers will push out assignments via Canvas to students’ Chromebooks and students will complete those assignments at home on Jan. 22.
     
  • Attendance: Attendance will be taken by the submission of assignments.

Special Education Students

Teachers will provide separate or modified assignments if needed for students who receive special education services.
