Will Rogers Junior High School students to begin a transition to distance learning

The district says too many staff members and students are stuck in quarantine

CLAREMORE, Okla. — Claremore school officials announced students at Will Rogers Junior High School will transition to distance learning beginning on Tuesday.

The district said the decision was made due to an increase in staff and student COVID-19 quarantines within the school.

A letter sent out to students and parents says Will Rogers Junior High experienced unusually high coronavirus-related quarantines over the last 10 days that have “significantly affected” the staffing at the school.

Students are expected to go back to class following Christmas Break on Monday, January 4th, 2021.

Because this face to face closure is due to staff quarantines and isolations and not a full-blown COVID-19 outbreak, the school will continue to have activities and athletics scheduled for the next two weeks. This is contingent on no additional quarantines or changes in COVID-19 spread.

Any previous quarantines regarding teams or groups are still in effect, even if the events are still scheduled to continue.

Meals will be distributed off-site at the Claremore Administration Building, from 10:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. on December 8th and December 10th.

The following week, meals will be distributed on December 14th and December 17th from 10:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. at the Central Office location.
