Sand Springs Public Schools COVID-19 Infections Drop to 8 | News


Just a week after Sand Springs Public Schools reported a dozen COVID-19 infections in one elementary school among 21 cases in all, the district’s total number of infections dropped to 8, according to data released by the school district on Friday.

Only three school sites out of 10 reported no COVID infections at all — limestone with five cases, seven fewer than 12 the previous week; Clyde Boyd Middle School/Sixth Grade Center with two cases, one less than three the previous week; and Charles Page High School/Freshman Academy, with one case, the same as last week, the data shows.

The Early Childhood Education Center dropped from three cases the previous week to zero, and Northwoods Fine Arts Academy saw the number of cases drop from two the previous week to none.

All other school sites reported zero COVID infections for at least the second week in a row.

The only other time the school district’s COVID cases were in single digits was for the week ending October 15; then eight infections were also reported.

In the 13 weeks since classes began on Aug. 17, the weekly infection rate has never dropped below eight, data shows.

Several other school districts in the region also released updated COVID-19 cases on Friday, according to the Tulsa World.

Tulsa Public Schools reported 21 cases of students and 10 cases of employees.
