THE SPECIAL FEEDING PROGRAM'S LAST DAY WAS 4/11/2018

Due to a teacher walkout, there will still be no classes in the Bartlesville Public Schools on Wednesday, April 4.
Expect daily updates on whether schools will remain closed or will re-open.

Supt. McCauley has invoked the existing authorization from the Board of Education to continue to suspend all classes in Bartlesville Public Schools through at least Wednesday, April 4.

A School Messenger notice will go out each day once it is known if schools will remain closed or will re-open.

  • Teachers continue to ask the legislature to:
    • Fully fund with new revenues ALL of the various pay raises from last week, meaning not just teachers and school support staff, but also state workers
    • Provide additional operational funding for schools, given the statewide impact of cuts over the past decade and their effect on class sizes, instructional supplies, and course offerings; statewide impact information is available at https://sites.google.com/view/thetimeisnowok/school-funding-crisis

ATHLETICS/ACTIVITIES DURING SUSPENSION

In keeping with other schools in our conference, varsity level athletics resumed play on Tuesday. No junior varsity or "junior high" events. Athletics teams and band, orchestra, and choir may use the facilities after 3:00 p.m. during the duration of the walkout.

State Science Fair on 4/5-6 and State Debate Tournament WILL take place as scheduled and the district will participate, regardless of the status of the teacher walkout.

SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS & PARENTS

The district deeply appreciates the widespread community support throughout the legislative crisis over school funding and the many community partners who have stepped forward to help students and parents during the closure.
