Back to School

School begins August 1st, 2019.

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.

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