We are continuing to work with the National Weather Service and Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency to monitor weather forecasts for tomorrow and will share updates on our plans for Wednesday, Feb. 1 through email, text message, social media, and on our website.

Safety tips for student electronic devices. Do you and your students have iPhones, iPads, iPods, or Mac? Did you know that AirDrop, the popular file sharing app, is the most popular app used during school hours? Students commonly use AirDrop to share notes, homework and other files.

However, Airdrop does not have any restrictions on the type of content type, so it is easy to share content type unsolicited, inappropriate content with no risk of getting blocked, reported,  or banned. You can protect your child from this type of content by updating their Airdrop settings: click here for more information.

The 2023-2024 enrollment window is open – come to an event to get information! If your child is entering middle or high school next year, or if you are interested in exploring other schools in the district, our 2023-2024 school year enrollment window is open until Sunday, Feb. 12! Don’t miss the last Enrollment Expo on Saturday, Feb. 4 from 10am-3pm at Tulsa Tech Lemley Campus (3420 S Memorial Dr). Transportation will be available to and from the event.
