Muskogee 7th & 8th Grade Academy to Remain Virtual Through Nov. 6
MUSKOGEE, Okla. - Muskogee Public Schools announced Tuesday that the 7th & 8th Grade Academy at Ben Franklin will continue Virtual Days for Wednesday, Nov. 4 through Friday, Nov. 6, 2020. District Administration elected to make the move to a full week of Virtual Days following an increase in the number of students quarantined due to direct contact through contact tracing from recent positive cases at the site.
Since Oct. 26, the 7th & 8th Grade Academy has experienced six students, five in-person, who have tested positive for COVID-19 resulting in 97 students and two teachers in quarantine or self-isolation.
The extra three days of virtual instruction will allow a number of the quarantined students to return to the classroom between November 9-13.
For all positive cases and quarantine situations, MPS notifies the Muskogee County Health Department and works alongside them as we work through these cases for students and families.
We recommend you monitor your student for symptoms of Covid-19, contact your health professional, and should you choose to quarantine your student, please communicate with the office staff at the 7th & 8th Grade Academy.
For medical-related questions, your health care provider or the Muskogee County Health Department are the best resources for you.
For any school-related questions, please contact the 7th & 8th Grade Academy at Ben Franklin on Wednesday.
