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.

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 And Safety Update

Dear parents and families,

This evening, I shared information with our Board of Education about potential modifications to our COVID-19 safety practices. These changes are contingent on our continued monitoring of the COVID-19 case rates in our county, the state, and around the world. We are also working with health professionals and the Tulsa Health Department. It is important for each of us as Tulsans to keep doing our part to keep our community safe: wear your mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance. Please know that we will also keep doing our part to maintain practices such as good air quality in our buildings.

It is also tremendously important for all of us to receive our vaccinations for COVID-19 including a booster as soon as we are eligible. We are so grateful that our younger students are now eligible, and we strongly encourage you to talk with your child’s pediatrician about the vaccine. We are hosting clinics for free vaccinations, and you can stay in touch with us on those opportunities via our website and through our regular emails to families.

Here is a summary of our adjustments:

Masking

  • We will continue to recommend that adults and children - particularly those who are unvaccinated - wear masks indoors and when in the presence of others.
    • Starting on Monday, Nov. 29, we will no longer expect masking in buildings where individuals have been eligible for vaccination for several months - this includes our stand-alone high schools and district office sites.
    • We are also hopeful that starting on Tuesday, Jan. 4, we will no longer expect masking in any of our buildings - this includes elementary schools, middle and junior high schools, and 6-12 school sites. Confirmation of that change will come before winter break.
  • We will continue to follow the federal mandate for masking on public conveyances, so bus riders (and drivers) will wear masks traveling to and from school.

Layered safety practices

  • When possible, we will maintain safe distancing.
  • Adults entering buildings will continue check-in at welcome stations and complete a temperature check; staff will continue using our screen-and-go application.

School volunteers

  • We will lift our visitor restrictions to allow volunteers - including parents and guardians who are volunteering - to enter our buildings. Volunteers must follow our safety protocols, and all parents and volunteers should understand the school practices.

Exposure tracking and quarantine

  • We will continue to share counts of confirmed positive cases on a weekly basis.
  • Quarantines for exposed individuals will no longer be required. Individuals may choose to self-quarantine, if they have been exposed. Isolations for individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 will continue to be required.
  • Symptomatic or positive students or team members should stay home. Click here for our at-home health screening questions.

Over the next few weeks, we will work with the Tulsa Health Department as they monitor conditions in our city. We are hopeful that the trends we are seeing in case rates and vaccination rates will continue so that we can make these changes to our safety practices. You can always find our most current practices at www.tulsaschools.org/safety.

Thank you for doing your part to protect our community! If your child is age 5 or older and you have not done so already, please click here to make a vaccination appointment for your child today!

Best,

Queridos padres y familias:

Esta noche, compartí información con nuestra Junta de Educación sobre posibles modificaciones a nuestras prácticas de seguridad COVID-19. Estos cambios dependen de nuestro monitoreo continuo de casos de COVID-19 en nuestro condado, el estado y en todo el mundo. También estamos trabajando con profesionales de la salud y el Departamento de Salud de Tulsa. Es importante para cada uno de nosotros, como habitantes de Tulsa, seguir haciendo nuestra parte para cuidar a nuestra comunidad: use su cubreboca, lávese las manos y mantenga su distancia. Tenga en cuenta que también seguiremos haciendo nuestra parte para mantener prácticas como la buena calidad del aire en nuestros edificios.

También es tremendamente importante para todos nosotros recibir nuestras vacunas para COVID-19, incluyendo la vacuna de refuerzo, tan pronto puedan recibirlas. Estamos muy agradecidos de que nuestros estudiantes más jóvenes ahora sean elegibles y le recomendamos encarecidamente que hable con el pediatra de su hijo sobre la vacuna. Estamos organizando clínicas para vacunas gratuitas, y puede mantenerse en contacto con nosotros sobre esas oportunidades a través de nuestro sitio web y a través de nuestros correos electrónicos a las familias.

Aquí hay un resumen de nuestras modificaciones:

Cubrebocas

  • Continuaremos recomendando que los adultos y los niños, particularmente aquellos que no están vacunados, usen cubrebocas en el interior de las instalaciones y cuando estén en presencia de otras personas.
    • A partir del lunes 29 de noviembre, ya no será necesario usar cubrebocas en las instalacciones donde las personas hayan sido elegibles para recibir la vacuna durante varios meses; esto incluye nuestras escuelas secundarias independientes y las oficinas del distrito.
    • También tenemos la esperanza de que a partir del martes 4 de enero, ya no sea necesario usar cubrebocas en ninguno de nuestras instalaciones; esto incluiría las escuelas primarias, secundarias y planteles escolares de 6º a 12º grado. Confirmaremos estas posibles modificaciones antes de las vacaciones de invierno.
  • Continuaremos cumpliendo con el mandato federal de usar cubrebocas en los medios de transporte públicos, por lo que los pasajeros (y conductores) de los autobuses usarán cubrebocas cuando vayan y vengan de la escuela.

Prácticas de seguridad

  • Cuando sea posible, mantendremos un distanciamiento seguro.
  • Los adultos que ingresen a nuestras instalaciones continuarán registrándose en las estaciones de bienvenida y completarán un control de temperatura; el personal continuará usando nuestra aplicación screen-and-go.

Voluntarios de la escuela

  • Eliminaremos nuestras restricciones de visitantes para permitir que los voluntarios, incluidos los padres y tutores que se ofrecen como voluntarios, ingresen a nuestros edificios. Los voluntarios deben seguir nuestros protocolos de seguridad y todos los padres y voluntarios deben comprender las prácticas escolares.

Seguimiento de exposición y cuarentena

  • Continuaremos compartiendo los recuentos de casos positivos confirmados semanalmente.
  • Ya no se requerirán cuarentenas para las personas expuestas. Las personas pueden optar por la auto-cuarentena, si han estado expuestas. Se seguirán requiriendo aislamientos para las personas que hayan dado positivo en la prueba de COVID-19.
  • Los estudiantes o miembros del equipo que sean sintomáticos o den positivos deben quedarse en casa. Haga clic aquí para nuestras preguntas de salud en el hogar.

Durante las próximas semanas, trabajaremos con el Departamento de Salud de Tulsa mientras monitorean las condiciones en nuestra ciudad. Tenemos la esperanza de que las tendencias que estamos viendo en las tasas de casos y las tasas de vacunación continúen para que podamos realizar estos cambios en nuestras prácticas de seguridad. Siempre puede encontrar nuestras prácticas más actualizadas en www.tulsaschools.org/safety.

¡Gracias por hacer su parte en proteger a nuestra comunidad! Si su hijo tiene 5 años o más y aún no se ha vacunado, puede hacer clic aquí para programar una cita de vacunación para su hijo hoy.

Saludos,

Deborah A. Gist

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.
