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.
Parent/Teacher Conferences are held twice a year at Memorial High School. In the fall, conferences are held on two nights in mid-October. In the spring, conferences are held on two nights in mid-March. Conferences run from four to seven in the evening.
Teachers will hold conferences in their rooms on a first come first serve basis. Parents are encourage to check students' grades through PowerSchool and print out a schedule to make sure they visit all their students' teachers.
The Memorial faculty is eager to work with all parents and support each student's success. We hope you will join us for an opportunity to speak with each of your student's teachers.
2018-2019 Parent Involvement Plan
Purpose: Memorial High School shall promote parent involvement as mandated by Title I, No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 and work as equal partners with parents in providing quality learning experiences for every student, every day, without exception.
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. To this end, Memorial High School shall involve parents in the education of their children at all grade levels.
As a result of our belief in parent involvement, our desire to create an environment of supportive and collaborative parent involvement, and the purposes of Title I of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Memorial High School adopts this Parent Involvement Plan. This will be displayed on the school website and the district website, displayed on the parent information bulletin board located in the main office of Memorial High School, and communicated to parents through the parent newsletter.
- Program Information for Parents
- Materials and Training
- Educate Educators
- Understandable Communication
- Other Requested Activities
Memorial High School shall provide assistance to parents of all children in understanding such topics as the state’s academic content and achievement standards, the assessments being used, the requirements of Title I, Part A, No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and how to monitor their children’s progress and work with educators to improve their achievement. Specifically, Memorial will host two information nights, one at the school and one other population center within the school’s boundaries. The purpose of these will be assisting parents in their understanding of content, standards, assessments, and how to use the PowerSchool Parent Portal, e-mail, parent-teacher conferences, and phone contact to monitor progress and work with teachers. Parent Portal contacts were distributed to parents when students and parents came to school to pick up schedules, and have continued to be distributed at all parent-teacher conferences.
Memorial High School provides material for parents on health and college readiness in the parent information kiosk in the main office. We shall also develop a parent resource shelf that provides materials on literacy, use of technology, and supporting students in their school achievement, all of which will be available for parents to check out for their use. Memorial offers parent trainings to address family and student literacy strategies and how parents can use technology to work with their children to improve achievement.
Memorial High School has and will continue to educate teachers, pupil services personnel, principals, and other staff on the use of web pages to communicate course content, daily assignments, and grades to parents. With the assistance of parents, MHS will educate its educators and staff in the value and utility of contributions of parents, and in how to reach out to, communicate with, and work with parents as equal partners. We will also implement and coordinate parent programs and build ties between parents and the school.
