School Out Early on Friday

File photo

Tulsa Public Schools reminded parents that the first “early release Friday” occurs this Friday, Sept. 28.

Students will be released from their schools approximately two hours early. Release times vary by school, and can be found on the “My Child’s School” page under “Parents” on the TPS website. Students will be served lunch prior to release and buses will run generally two hours earlier than the regularly-scheduled time.

Parents are responsible for their own child care arrangements. TPS after-school child care programs will still be available for those students who are already enrolled in them.

Early release Fridays will enable teachers, staff and administrators to have additional time to engage in Professional Learning Communities, where effective teaching methods and techniques can be studied and shared. The goal of PLCs is ultimately to improve student achievement.
