COVID-19 Response

Throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic, Tulsa Public Schools has continued to work closely with local health professionals to keep our students, team, and families safe and healthy. As we move forward together, our district will continue to make decisions based on science, data, and the advice of health experts.

 

 


 

Wear, Wash, Watch

Everyone in our community should be learning about and practicing the “3 Ws” of COVID-19 safety: wear your mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance. While we do have safety protocols in place at all of our buildings and sites, safe distancing will look different with students returning to in-person learning. Adults in our buildings will be expected to manage their distance, and we will maintain as much space as we can when students are in classrooms or moving throughout the building.

It will be important for parents to talk to their children about all of the “3 Ws,” but it is likely that safe distancing will be challenging for students in all grade levels. It will be hard for children to not hug their friends and teachers and to maintain distance with groups of friends that they have not seen since March. We encourage you to talk with your children about other ways to greet their friends from a safe distance.

 


 

Health and Safety Protocols

We continue to work with the Tulsa Health Department and other local and national health professionals to ensure that we are keeping our students, team, and families safe.

  • 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, students and adults will be required to wear a mask when around other people.
  • 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: 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 separated.
  • Intensified Cleaning Techniques: Custodians will use handheld electrostatic sprayers and Biospray tanks to increase effectiveness and efficiency in disinfecting procedures.

2020-2021 School Year Overview

We are enthusiastic about welcoming your children back to learning in the 2020–2021 school year! While our school experiences will look and feel different this year, our teachers and school leaders will engage our students in rigorous learning, build and sustain meaningful teacher/student relationships, and keep children and families connected to their schools even, at times, from a safe distance.
