OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – As the number of coronavirus cases continues to grow across the state, a local school district says it will continue with distance learning.

On Thursday, Putnam City Public Schools announced that it would continue with distance learning through Dec. 18.

“Due to heightened COVID-19 numbers, Putnam City Schools will be in Distance Learning through December 18th,” a statement from the district read.
