Back to School

Back to School 2020/2021
Part of our goals as a school district is to provide a safe and secure learning environment for students and staff. That is our top priority every year but especially as we prepare for the 2020-2021 school year. We understand that you may have plenty of questions about your student’s health and well-being at school, possible disruptions during the year, our cleaning and sanitizing processes, social distancing, face masks, and so much more. We have been working this summer gathering information, collaborating with other districts on best practices, reviewing guidance from the State, and studying parent/student feedback to prepare our reopening plan. That plan will be announced on July 31.

Our intention is to welcome our students back into our school buildings on Aug. 20. We understand that not everyone will be comfortable with this option. As you prepare for the upcoming school year, please review these three options available for your student; Traditional, Virtual, and Hybrid. We will enroll each student traditionally unless you tell us you would prefer a different setting. Click the graphic to download and print a bigger version.

Instructional Options for Students

Traditional Instruction web graphic
This option is for students reporting to his/her school building to receive instruction in the classroom. As previously mentioned, the traditional setting will look different from years past to focus on current recommendations of local health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in regard to COVID-19. Again, our reopening plan will be announced in late July.

Virtual Instruction web graphic
This option is for students in Kindergarten through 12th grades. These students are enrolled in Sapulpa Virtual Academy on a full-time basis with students being responsible for completing all courses by the end of the semester in which the classes are assigned. Students who would like to participate in a competitive activity such as athletics, band, choir, etc, will be required to attend the class associated with the activity at the school site as part of the regular school day schedule and be subject to OSSAA academic eligibility rules for participation in extracurricular activities. If you are interested in this option, please fill out the appropriate Enrollment Request Form and you will be contacted after July 24.

Hybrid Instruction web graphic
This option is for students in 8th through 12th grades who prefer a combination of traditional and virtual instruction. The student will receive instruction in the classroom whether at school, Tulsa Community College, or Central Tech and remotely via our learning management system. Hybrid classes are scheduled during the school day as part of the regular schedule and are subject to OSSAA academic eligibility rules for participation in extracurricular activities. If you are interested, please contact Sapulpa Junior High School or Sapulpa High School beginning July 24.

Distance Learning web graphic
Sapulpa Public Schools is currently gathering information and discussing plans in the event we need to pivot to Distance Learning in the new school year. This will be the plan we will use for intermittent or long-term closures due to health or weather-related circumstances. If another shutdown occurs, the curriculum and level of accountability will be similar to the typical experience of our traditional and virtual instruction offerings. We will release our Distance Learning plan later this summer.
