BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — Broken Arrow Public Schools announced the plan for students after the Thanksgiving break.

The ZIP codes within our district are continuing to experience a significant rise in COVID-19 numbers, which means we are seeing an increasing number of students, teachers and staff being impacted by the virus. When we combine these numbers with a shortfall of substitutes, bus drivers and key personnel, we must continue to wisely utilize our resources as we try to mitigate and manage through the spread of the virus.
Superintendent Dr. Janet Vinson
