Oologah-Talala Public Schools
Return To Learn
As of June 15, 2021, Oologah-Talala Public Schools moved to “Level 1” on the OTPS Board approved mask policy which states: “All individuals-including students, staff, and visitors- may wear masks while on school premises or while engaged in school- sponsored activities. Though mask usage is optional, the District highly encourages individuals to wear masks.” Simply stated, masks are optional on school premises as of this time.
The district does acknowledge that Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt has signed into law a bill prohibiting schools from adopting mask or vaccination requirements. However, the federal government is requiring the mask policy for the school to receive federal aid related to COVID-19. By maintaining Level 1 on the Board approved mask policy, OTPS is able to satisfy the federal requirement of having a mask policy while also ensuring that state law is not violated.
Oologah-Talala Public Schools will continue to operate with the safety of all students and faculty in mind and will continue to adjust policies and procedures based on available information from local, state, and federal entities.
