Student and School Safety
We continue to collaborate with public health and medical professionals to ensure that our safety guidance reflects the most current science, data, and best practices. We are working with the Tulsa Health Department and those health professionals to finalize our plans for COVID-19 safety in the 2021-2022 school year.
Mask Policy Revision and Safety Updates
Based on our continued work with public health and medical professionals and on the most recent CDC guidance, masks will no longer be required for fully vaccinated adults and students.
We recommend and encourage students and team members who have not been fully vaccinated to continue to wear masks indoors at all times and outdoors when around other people.

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.

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.
