Muskogee High School will shift to virtual instruction on Thursday as work continues to repair a broken water line on campus.

All 10th-12th grade students who attend MHS will work virtually Thursday, according to school spokesman Steve Braun. This includes special education students, who may typically come in when instruction moves virtual. Rougher Alternative Academy, Roughers Innovations Academy, BOOT School, and all other sites will remain in session as normal.

All MHS students will access their assignments through their individual teachers’ Google Classroom or Schoology. Students failing to log in will receive an absence for all classes into which they do not log in. Students may email or message their teachers with any questions they may have.

Teachers will receive information regarding expectations for Thursday via email from MHS administration.
