JENKS, Okla. — Jenks Public School officials announce all secondary students are moving to distance learning.

Secondary students include students in grades 7-12. This goes into effect on November 16th. The plan is for students to return to in person learning on December 7th.

In a Facebook post, officials said the move is due to a rising number of staff and students in quarantine due to COVID-19.

"The decision to only transition secondary students into distance learning is due primarily to a lack of adequate staffing. As more employees have been placed in isolation or quarantine, it has become difficult to find enough substitute teachers or other personnel to cover classrooms. Without proper staffing, it is becoming increasingly difficult for JPS to maintain an optimal learning environment."
