As outlined in our previous message, ALL sites will transition to distance learning district-wide beginning Tuesday, January 11th. Given the number of absences we are experiencing, we unfortunately are unable to safely and effectively conduct in-person instruction. With Monday January 17th a school holiday, we anticipate a return to in-person instruction on Tuesday, January 18th. We will of course keep you apprised of updates over the next few days.
Details for Grades PK-6:
In order to allow sites to check out necessary technology, grades PK-6 will participate in Brick to Click on Tuesday 1/11 followed by distance learning beginning Wednesday 1/12.
At this time, PK-6th grade families should:
Keep an eye out for further communications from their site principal and classroom teachers.
Review the Distance Learning Guide and daily schedule for their student’s grade level. Those guides can be accessed here:
Prepare a plan for childcare if needed.
Be aware, your child’s teacher will be sending a follow-up email with details on distance learning schedule, etc.
Grade PK-6 students approved for a district-provided Chromebook for distance learning will be able to pick those up on Tuesday 1/11.
Families who will need a district-provided device can review that process here.
Site principals will follow up shortly with more details relative to the pick up schedule.
Details for Grades 7-12:
Students will follow their regular instructional day on an abbreviated schedule (core classes and electives/extracurriculars).
Each period will be at least 45 minutes and up to 60 minutes with additional time via office hours as needed.
Students should tune into the Google Meet for each class at the beginning of each class period.
Tulsa Tech buses will run on their normal schedule.
Meals: families who wish to take advantage of our free breakfast and lunch service for Bixby students can pick up meals at any school site from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM each day during this period.
Please ensure you have your student’s 5-digit ID number if picking up meals at a location other than their home site. If needed, the front office can provide you with this number.
Student medications: medications held in the school nurse's office may be picked up by the parent or guardian if needed. Please call the school during regular school hours to make arrangements. A picture ID will be required to pick up medication.
Review the options/locations for free wi-fi access throughout our community if needed.
