Cell Phones
As in the past, students are welcome to bring cell phones with them, but they should not use their cell phones except in cases of necessity when they need to contact their family.

Inclement Weather
As in the past we will follow the Tulsa Public Schools announcements regarding school closings for inclement weather, but if Tulsa Schools are open and any parents deem it unsafe to travel, especially given that many students live outside of Tulsa, we encourage families to put safety first and not attempt to travel to school. We will also be sending out emails regarding any class cancellations due to inclement weather.

Tuition
The cost of tuition for our program is $500 per semester per student. Payments can be made anytime before the end of each semester. Marion Williams is our treasurer so payments should be made to her.
