While students are on shutdown due to the coronavirus, Muskogee Public Schools is sending work home to enable them to have something to do.
“They do not have to do it,” said Steve Braun, spokesman for the district. “We wanted to make the work available so students would be able to stay academically engaged.”
Dr. Mendenhall, the schools’ superintendent, will be posting a video update later today on social media that clarifies that the work is optional, not mandatory.
Schools are mandated by the state order to not require work to be completed during the shutdown.
