HIDE Back to School

School begins August 1st, 2019.

Welcome to Hawthorne!

The faculty and staff at Hawthorne Community School extend a special welcome to each student and parent. We believe that you are the ones who make our school a very special place. The purpose of this information is to help students and parents become acquainted with school and district procedures.

We look forward to seeing our students back in class on time on Wednesday, August 21, 2019! This back to school page is your hub for all of the news and information you need to prepare for a great start to the 2019-2020 school year. We encourage you to bookmark this page and check back often for updates! Starting on August 1, follow #TPSBack2School on the Tulsa Public Schools FacebookTwitter, and Instagram pages to stay up to date on the new school year.

The first two days of school for pre-kindergarten students are reserved for orientation and screenings (August 21-22). The first full day of school for all pre-kindergarten students is August 23, 2019. 

All schools will hold an orientation meeting to meet with pre-k students and their families on the first day of school (August 21, 2019).

This is an attendance requirement. Students who do not attend the orientation meeting or their scheduled assessment/screening meeting (regardless of date scheduled) must be counted absent as they cannot count in the school membership until they attend school.

The pre-kindergarten screening assessment will be held on the first two instructional days of the 2019-2020 school year, by appointment. All pre-kindergarten students should be scheduled for a 30 minute screening assessment on August 21 OR August 22, which will be conducted 1:1 by their teacher.

Drop Off/Pick Up

Drop Off/Pick Up

Please do not drop your child(ren) off before 7:00 a.m. Teachers are not on duty and supervision cannot be provided before that time. Children are to be picked up from school before 3:00 p.m., unless they are in tutoring or taking part in an after-school program. If that is the case students should be picked up promptly at 4:30 p.m.

All students enter the building through the front door.

In the afternoon, students are dismissed as follows:

  • WALKERS - exit through the south door
  • CAR RIDERS - are escorted through the east main entrance doors
  • BUS RIDERS - load from the front ramp

If you are going into the school to drop-off/ pick-up your child be courteous and park in the outside lanes, so that others may move smoothly through the driving lanes. 

One extra minute of your time could keep your child safe from harm. 
The end of the school day is the most congested with cars, vans, buses, and CHILDREN.  Please follow the instructions of the person in charge of dismissal in the gym and in the parking lot.


Parents must accompany their child to the office if he/she should be tardy. A tardy slip will be issued and will serve as a pass to class. Chronic tardiness (excused or unexcused), not only deprives you child of valuable classroom experiences, it also disrupts the continuity of the lesson for the other students. We are asking that you help your child develop a responsible work ethic by making sure he/she is present, on time and ready to learn. If a student is late more than two hours, he/she will be counted absent one half day.

Early Release

Parents must come to the office to take a student out of school before dismissal time. The student will be called from the classroom to the office. All students must be signed out through the office. Students’ will be released only to those parents, guardians, or authorized adults listed on the Tulsa Public Schools enrollment form. Students are expected to remain on school grounds unless proper check-out procedures have been followed. School is dismissed at 2:35 p.m. When a child is picked up early, he/she is missing last minute instruction and the whole class is disturbed. Please make every effort to schedule doctor and dentist appointments after school hours. If a student is picked up more than one hour early, he/she will be counted absent one half day.

We use three guiding principles to make decisions about postponing or closing schools for inclement weather:

  • Time spent in the classroom is integral to preparing students for academic success.
  • Students and staff must be able to get to and from school safely.
  • Parents and guardians must have adequate time to make arrangements for transportation or childcare.

School closings or delays are communicated widely through our website, social media, SchoolMessenger communication system, and local news outlets.

Learn more about our inclement weather procedures here.
