Buses load and unload right in front of the school by the ramp.
Who do I call if my child has not returned home from school on time?
- First call the school
- If you do not get an answer, call transportation at 918-833-8100

|-||-||Bus routes for 2019-20 will be published on 8/1/2019. Please check back at that time!|
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.
Regular and punctual attendance is mandatory for student success. To receive instruction, a student must be in class. There is no way to make-up the instruction that is presented on any specific day. A good education requires continuity of instruction. We will follow all School Board Policies regarding attendance. There are a limited number of days a student may be absent before retention in a grade is mandated. If your child is ill and unable to attend class, please contact the school office (925-1340). He/she will need to make arrangements with the teacher to make up class work for the day/days missed. This is the student’s responsibility.
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.
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.
