We now will be keeping you updated on our Covid totals weekly.
If you would like to check out the totals for this week, please click the link below:
As you know COVID cases are climbing in the state and the county. Our approach is to keep kids in school as long as we have the staff available to safely supervise them.
We currently have a large number of staff out due to illness so the decision to keep our schools open or go to distance-learning may have to be made soon.
We have started preparing students in the event that we have to go to distance learning. No decisions have been made at this moment but a period of distance learning is a possibility if available staffing numbers continue to decline.
As per the State Department of Education, we will now post our capacity for the district on our website at tahlequahschools.org. Once on the webpage, you will hold your cursor over the district tab and choose the Enrollment sub-tab. This will take you to the breakdown of our Capacity, the revised Student Transfer policy #6025, and all other information you would need to apply for a transfer.
We have become aware of a troubling post that is being shared this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety “for every school in the USA, even elementary,” on Friday, December 17. The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend. While we do not believe the threat to be credible, we are closely monitoring the situation and taking it seriously.
Additionally, the district has been in contact with the Tahlequah Police Department regarding the trending post. We may have an increased security presence in our buildings on Friday as an added precaution.
This situation serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for our students, families, and staff. We ask our families to monitor their children’s social media activity and speak with them about proper behavior online. Students need to be aware such threats can lead to school discipline as well as criminal charges.
If you or your child become aware of any potential threat posted to social media or anywhere else, please notify a school staff member or trusted adult right away.
As always, thank you for your partnership as we work to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment for our students.
Tahlequah PS Superintendent
