At Memorial High School we believe that parent involvement raises the academic achievement level of students. Additionally, parents become empowered, teacher morale improves and communities grow stronger when parents take an active role in educating their children.
Good attendance is vital to the academic success of every student. Please, make sure your student arrives at school on time as often as possible. Under the compulsory education, law it is the duty of the parent or guardian to notify the school regarding the reason for absences of school-aged children.
Students need to be in attendance for at least two hours to be counted as "present" for one-half day. Students arriving late or departing early will have their attendance record accurately reflect the portion of the school day they were reported as "present."
If it is necessary for your child to be absent, please call the attendance desk at 918-833-9600 before 10:30 a.m. All absences must have a written or verbal explanation provided by the parent/guardian within 48 hours of the student's return to school. An absence for which no acceptable explanation is received shall be deemed unexcused.
Students will need to pick up a schedule change form from the office and return it upon completion. Schedule change forms due require a parent/guardian signature. It may take several weeks to work through all the schedule change request.
All students will receive a student ID during the first month of school. Students need to wear ID's daily and have it available if requested for identification. Replacement Fee: $3.00
Lost and Found Policy
Please call the main office at 918-833-9600 about any missing items that may have been turned in.
It is the policy of Tulsa Public Schools to withhold transcripts and copies of other school records relating to any student who fails to return a textbook or other property or to make payment for the items issued. Students with hold cards are prohibited from participating in all activities such as Prom. Also, they cannot receive diplomas until holds are taken care of.
It is very important that seniors request their final transcript to be sent to the college they will attend in the fall. To make the final transcript request fill out a form in the main office.
