TULSA -- Tulsa Public Schools released more information Wednesday about how the district will manage in the event that a teacher walkout happens next week.

The district provided the following info for parents:

•    All schools in the district will be closed to the public – students and families will not be able to access these buildings. Any school days affected by the shutdown will be made up at the end of the school year like snow days.
•    Approximately 70 non-school sites will provide breakfast and lunch free of charge to students under age 18. Visit to find sites.
•    The Tulsa Area United Way is coordinating family and student resources for a closure, including child-care, meal-sites, and out-of-school learning opportunities. Visit for more information.
•    Transportation services will be available only to assist students taking classes at sites not affected by the closure such as Tulsa Tech and Tulsa Community College.
•    Most district-run extracurricular programming, including junior varsity athletics, will be suspended. Spring varsity-level teams and spring varsity-level activities are the only exceptions.
•    Graduations will be held as planned. If needed, members of the class of 2018 will have opportunities to complete any outstanding credits during the summer.
•    Prom will be held as planned as long as there is adequate supervision from parent and community member chaperones at these events.
