COYLE, Okla. — An Oklahoma superintendent who is involved daily in every classroom tested positive for the coronavirus prompting the school district to close the school for deep cleaning and start virtual learning for a week.
Coyle Public Schools instituted its “Plan C” after Superintendent Terry Zink tested positive earlier in the week, according to a district letter sent to parents.
Students were sent home in the middle of the day and the schools were closed Thursday for deep cleaning. Distance learning will start Monday. Students are expected to return to school Aug. 31.
"Our main priority is keeping our students and faculty safe," officials said.
