Broken Arrow Public Schools is excited to announce that the Class of 2024 will graduate at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 13, 2024, at Memorial Stadium located on Broken Arrow High School's campus. The makeup dates are May 14 or May 15 if rain is expected in the forecast. Project Graduation will take place Monday, May 13 regardless of weather.
“We continue to receive an overwhelming amount of positive feedback about having graduation at Memorial Stadium because it’s only fitting for our students to experience some of their last high school memories on their own turf,” Director of Student Life and Activities Christian Welborn said.
More information will be available in the coming months, including number of patrons able to attend.
Broken Arrow Public Schools is committed to the safety and wellbeing of its students and staff. In the event of inclement weather, there are five snow days built into the instructional calendar, meaning if the district does not use any snow days, the last day of school will be five days sooner. In certain circumstances or emergencies, distance learning may still be used.
The following information explains how closure decisions are made and how families/staff can get the most current information possible:
How are decisions made to cancel school?
When deciding whether to close schools, a number of factors are taken into consideration, including the amount of snow fall, condition of residential and thoroughfare roads, temperature, and the ability to clear parking lots and sidewalks. District administrators closely monitor local forecasts at the first announcement of severe weather, while also personally traveling the roads in various areas of the district. If school is closed, all after-school activities, including sports and evening events, will also be canceled.
How are parents notified when school is canceled?
Closure information will be sent to parents/guardians and employees by telephone and email using our automated messenger system, SchoolMessenger. It will also be posted to the district’s website, Facebook, X (formerly known as Twitter), Instagram (@baschools) and shared with local television stations.
What options will the district consider when weather conditions are severe?
Severe Weather (Thunderstorms/Tornadic Storms/Heavy Snow/Ice)
Winter Weather (Snow/Ice)
If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school site.
The district’s child nutrition department developed a program called Love Accounts in which patrons can donate funds to anonymously help students struggling with food insecurity.
Whether it is a one-time donation or if patrons decide to give monthly, a donation of any size helps make a difference.
Patrons can choose which school and/or student they’d like to help. These donations can be done by cash, check or through MySchoolBucks’ online payment option (instructions for online donation). Please call the child nutrition office at 918-259-4565 to make a cash or check donation.
To highlight the district’s progress both inside and outside of the classroom, the district’s communications team partnered with financial services to create Broken Arrow Public Schools’ Popular Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2023.
This report combines district highlights and accomplishments from the previous year as well as financial information that is designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public without a background in public finance.
Questions, comments and feedback regarding this report are encouraged, so please do not hesitate to contact the district at 918-259-5700.
