TPS officials say masks must cover the nose and mouth and they must be worn at any time or place people are present.

The exceptions include outdoors, eating, and mask breaks.

Parents will be notified of the first two incidents of students not following mask requirements, and a third incident may result in students returning to distance learning.

Tulsa Public Schools says their mandate will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.
