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. We are working closely with the Tulsa Health Department to ensure that our health and safety guidance continues to reflect the most current information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
MASK POLICY AND SAFETY UPDATES FOR THE 21-22 SCHOOL YEAR
Our expectation is that every adult and student - regardless of vaccination status - wears a mask at all times indoors and outdoors when in the presence of others. Consistent with federal orders for masking on public conveyances from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, masks will be required on all Tulsa Public Schools buses.
Nuestra expectativa es que todos los adultos y estudiantes, independientemente del estado de vacunación, usen un cubrebocas en todo momento en interiores y exteriores cuando estén en presencia de otros. De acuerdo con las órdenes federales del uso del cubrebocas en los medios de transporte públicos de los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades, se requerirán cubrebocas en todos los autobuses de las Escuelas Públicas de Tulsa.

Is someone in immediate danger?
SEE. HEAR. SHARE.
You can help keep your school community safe. If you see or hear something concerning, call 918-480-SAFE (7233) or share with a trusted adult.
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.
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.
