Dear Sandite Families,
Earlier this week, I wrote to you about the staffing challenges faced by our district due to the current COVID-19 surge. Despite our best efforts to keep classes open at all sites, we must now implement a short-term switch to distance learning. Sand Springs Public Schools will shift to distance learning for the rest of the week, January 13-14. We will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, January 18. Please bear in mind that Monday, January 17 is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and there will be no class that day.
Child Nutrition will provide free curbside meal pickup every day for SSPS students. Please visit bit.ly/sanditecurbside to place your curbside orders.
If you have questions about distance learning/Google Classroom, please contact your child’s teacher. For all other questions, please contact your school.
Whether in-person or virtually, our tireless educators strive to provide the best possible learning experience for our students. I am honored to work alongside such dedicated heroes.
As always, thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.
The 1st Volume of the Charles Page Freshman Academy yearbook will be distributed to students Friday, May 21!
