Tulsa Public Schools will continue its once a month “early release Fridays” this year.

The first early release day of the 2013-14 school year will be Friday, Sept. 6.

The dates for early release for the remainder of the 2013-14 school year are as follows:

Traditional schools 
  • Oct. 4, 2013 
  • Nov. 1 
  • Dec. 6

  • Feb. 7, 2014                 
  • April 4
  • May 2

School start times remain unchanged on these days.

On early release Fridays, students will be released from their schools approximately two hours early.

Release times vary by school, and can be found 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.

Implemented last school year, early release Fridays 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.

 CLC schools include Chouteau, Eugene Field, Gilcrease, Kendall-Whittier, Mark Twain and Marshall elementary schools.

CLC schools are on intercession during the November and March early release days and thus have different dates scheduled.
