A New Era Begins
A new era will begin at Sulphur Public Schools on Monday, April 6 when teachers and administrators begin instituting distance learning as mandated by the State Department of Education due to closing of all schools in Oklahoma for the remainder of the year.
Sulphur superintendent Matt Holder said administrators and staff have been busy planning this week and getting resources available for local students to complete the school year.
According to Holder, there are about 60% of Sulphur students who qualify for free or reduced meals and many have no internet access. “We have families where there is no (internet) connectivity and that means we are going to have to get creative in how we reach students, but we will make it work,” Holder said.
