The Ponca City Public School district is sad to report the death of one of its teachers, Charles Wylie, on Monday, January 18, 2021. Charlie has taught reading at East Middle School for the last four years. His brother Jamey and his sister-n-law Amanda both teach at West Middle School.

Superintendent Shelley Arrott said, ““We are extremely saddened and heartbroken by this loss to our school community. Charlie was such a caring, fun-loving teacher, who was admired by both staff and students. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Charlie’s family and friends and our school family at this difficult time.”

East Middle School Principal Denton Long stated, “East Middle School staff are saddened to announce the passing of teacher Charlie Wylie. Charlie was an outstanding reading teacher for the students at EMS. He was a joy to be around. He had a love for comic books and pop culture and often used this to engage students at EMS to get them excited about reading. Charlie was loved by both staff and students. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.”

Counselors have been sent to East and are available for any students or staff if needed.
