Flooding Closes an Union School

Tulsa, OK –
Flooding closes Union's Grove Elementary for the rest of the week


Union's Grove Elementary School (on 61st Street west of HWY 169) will be closed Thursday and Friday, January 21 & 22, because of flooding in several classrooms. A combination of the overnight rain Wednesday evening and on-going construction on the building is the cause. Crews are using heavy equipment and blowers in the clean-up effort and will use the two days plus the weekend to ready the rooms for classes as usual Monday.

The district is in the middle of a major remodel at Grove, adding classrooms and restrooms and expanding the cafeteria and gymnasium. The expansion is thanks to an earlier bond issue. If voters pass another bond issue this coming February 9, construction for the entire project will be completed.
