OWASSO, Oklahoma -

Owasso students will shift to distance learning due to high staff and student absences said Owasso Public Schools leaders in a message to parents.

Interim Superintendent Dr. Margaret Coates announced that Owasso High School, Ram Academy, the 8th Grade Center and the 7th Grade Center will move to distance learning on Friday, January 14.

"The district will continue to assess staffing throughout the long weekend and communicate decisions regarding the week of Jan. 19-21 as soon as possible. As a reminder, there is no school on Monday, Jan. 17 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day or Tuesday, Jan. 18 for a virtual district-wide teacher professional development."

Coates reports that only three Owasso school sites have fewer than 20% of its staff out and that more absences are expected.
