COLBERT, Okla. (KXII) -- Some Oklahoma schools decided to stay open and keep classes going on Monday.

The Colbert Public schools superintendent Jarvis Dobbs says he polled his staff and the teachers decided it was in the best interest of the students to stay in school.

However, Dobbs says he does support the movement.

"If we had people that wanted to go we would have allowed them to go advocate for us," Dobbs said. "They decided they rather be at school and not go to Oklahoma city but we do support that effort."

Kingston and Atoka public schools also remained open.
