Some Tulsa Public School elementary students logged onto their Chromebooks Wednesday for distanced learning. Staff at Hawthorne Elementary School put out a statement Tuesday saying they are suspending in-person learning for Wednesday.
Based on the announcement; the district does not explicitly say if the closure is COVID related, rather it says it’s due to an absence of staff.
A follow-up statement later Wednesday ruled out in-person learning for Thursday as well.
This comes as several other Green Country schools have already had to shut down due to a spike in cases. Meanwhile, school districts are urging their students to mask up.
