The Tahlequah Public School District believes there is a positive correlation between attendance and academic performance. A district attendance regulation defines guidelines for excused and unexcused absences and their documentation and student responsibilities for make-up work.
Breakfast and lunch are served at all elementary and secondary schools. Free and reduced price meals are provided for children whose family income meets federal guidelines (all families are encouraged to fill out the confidential form). More information can be found on our Child Nutrition page.
Over 2,500 students are transported daily by district school buses. Handicapped children use buses which are specially equipped with lifts and other necessary equipment.
