Student and School Safety

There is nothing more important than keeping our students, teachers, and school communities safe, secure, and focused on teaching and learning. Tulsa Public Schools Campus Police works closely with school teams, the Tulsa Police Department, and area law enforcement agencies to protect our students, teachers, school leaders, and staff and to prevent emergencies before they arise.

Additionally, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Tulsa Public Schools is working closely with the Tulsa Health Department to make decisions on the safest mode of learning during the school year, as well as how to keep staff and students safe within school buildings.

While we will begin the 2020-2021 school year in distance learning, safety practices are being implemented throughout the district in preparation for when it is safe for students to return to in-person learning. These practices include:

  • Social Distancing: Maintaining social distancing (6' apart) between students.
  • Personal Protective Equipment: We will be prepared to provide the appropriate personal protective equipment to our students and employees. For as long as is necessary to ensure safety, most students and all adults will be required to wear a mask when around other people. Young children and children with some special needs will be exceptions.
  • New Building Signage: Our schools and sites with have signage about hygiene, social distancing, and safe and healthy behaviors (i.e. minimizing contact, wearing masks.)
  • Ventilation: Improved air filtration and/or ventilation systems at each school to minimize the potential airborne transmission of the virus in schools.
  • Sanitizing High-touch Surfaces: Custodians will have a focus on cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces and objects: tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, toilets, sinks, handrails, and water bottle filling stations.
  • Transportation: Capacity on our buses will be reduced by approximately 30%. The buses will be disinfected, staff and students will wear face coverings and the windows open for ventilation.
  • Child Nutrition: Meals will be served using the same distribution system as the current summer cafe model.
  • Enhanced Personal Hygiene: All schools and buildings will have adequate handwashing stations and hand sanitizer dispensers, disinfectant cleaner and wipes in the classrooms. 
  • Health Checks: We will require temperature checks for adults and ask parents to complete a health screening for students before school. Anyone feeling unwell will be safely seperated.
  • Intensified Cleaning Techniques: Custodians will use handheld electrostatic sprayers and Biospray tanks to increase effectiveness and efficiency in disinfecting procedures. 

 


 

SCHOOL EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

Each school’s emergency management plan is reviewed and revised annually and after each emergency. Board policy requires our schools to have emergency plans for many different types of emergencies. Below, you will find answers to some of the questions that parents frequently ask during and after a crisis.

SOCIAL MEDIA THREATS

We urge parents and families to talk with their children about the importance of good digital citizenship and the severity of the potential consequences for bad decisions made online.

Students who make threats to schools on social media are subject to serious and potentially life-altering consequences. Regardless of the original intention of a social media post - whether it was a joke or an expression of frustration – students can face long term suspension, arrest, and criminal charges. 

Inclement Weather

Ensuring that students are able to get to school on time every day means they need to be able to travel between home and school.

We use three guiding principals to make decisions about postponing or closing school for inclement weather.
