Tulsa Public Schools is reminding parents an “early release Friday” occurs Friday, November 30th. 

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 (PLCs), where effective teaching methods and techniques can be studied and shared. The goal of PLCs is ultimately to improve student achievement.

The dates for early release for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year are as follows:

Traditional schools 
  • Nov. 30 
  • Jan. 25, 2013 
  • Feb. 22  
  • March 29
  • April 26 
Continuous Learning Calendar schools
  • Nov. 30
  • Jan 25, 2013
  • Feb. 22
  • March 1 
  • April 26
School start times remain unchanged on these days.

CLC schools are on intercession during the October and March early release days and thus have different dates scheduled for those months. CLC schools include Chouteau, Eugene Field, Gilcrease, Kendall-Whittier, Mark Twain and Marshall elementaries.
