No classes on 4/2

Due to a teacher walkout, Bartlesville Public Schools will be CLOSED on Monday, April 2.
However, we are hopeful classes can RESUME on Tuesday, April 3 and currently plan to be back on the regular bell schedule that day.

For now the high school is still planning to have all juniors take the state-mandated ACT exam on Tuesday, April 3.  Freshmen, sophomores, and seniors will be in their regular classes that day.

The ACT test will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. in the Fine Arts Center and Fieldhouse, with Bruin Academy testing in the stadium.

All BHS students and staff should report to their designated locations on Tuesday morning. When students return on Tuesday, testing rosters will be posted:
  • outside the 10-12 counseling office
  • on the north end of the 1st and 2nd floors of the main building
  • on the north side of the elevator on the ground floor of the FAC lobby
Students who arrive after testing begins will be unable to test, sent on to class, and have to do a mandatory make-up test later in April.

Testing will end at 1:30 p.m. Juniors who are testing will have a CLOSED lunch period at the conclusion of testing with no off-campus travel.

All students will be in their regular 6th period classes.

The district's teachers have indicated they will walk out on Monday, April 2. Many will be traveling to the State Capitol.

Supt. McCauley has invoked the existing authorization from the Board of Education to suspend all classes in Bartlesville Public Schools on Monday.

However, the evolving political situation with school funding leads us at this time to expect that classes can resume on Tuesday, April 3.
  • Thursday, March 29: A School Messenger notice of the closure will go out that evening.
  • Sunday, April 1: A reminder/confirmation of the closure will go out late that day.
  • RESUMPTION NOTICE:  There will be another School Messenger notice either on Monday evening or very early on Tuesday to confirm that classes will resume on Tuesday. If the political situation changes, that notice will change accordingly.

No school 4/2


The district deeply appreciates the widespread community support throughout the legislative crisis over school funding,and the many community partners who have stepped forward to help students and parents during the closure.
