Due to the recent massive surge of COVID-19 infections and sickness in Oklahoma, Oktaha School, just south of Muskogee, has joined the long list of area schools that have gone virtual because of staff and student shortages.

The school will do distance learning tomorrow and Thursday and be off on Friday and Monday. It is expected to resume a week from today.

A high school basketball game at Westville scheduled for Friday has been canceled, as has a junior high basketball game on Monday at Sallisaw. An ICTC trip for 10th-graders scheduled for tomorrow is also canceled.
