TULSA, Okla. — Union Public Schools announced they are moving students in 9th through 12th grades to distance learning.

Officials said the move will begin on Thursday, Jan. 28th and students will return to in-person learning on Monday, Feb. 8th.

“Due to significant teacher absences at the secondary level, we’ve reached the point where we do not have enough substitutes available to adequately cover classrooms at these grade levels,” said Superintendent Kirt Hartzler. “As a result, we will shift to distance learning for grades 9-12 beginning tomorrow, with students returning to school on Feb. 8.”

Officials said the co-curricular activities will continue as planned.

“The shift to distance learning is one that we are well prepared for,” said Hartzler. “Our students have proven to be quite resilient at adapting to these changes brought about by Covid. We will work closely with students and parents to ensure that learning continues.”
