Health and Wellness
Great school communities start with safe and healthy students engaged in joyful learning. We work to ensure that schools and families have the appropriate supports and resources to keep each child healthy and happy.
SLEEP AND EXERCISE
The most prevalent health problems associated with low academic achievement in students is lack of sleep and exercise. Most children need at least nine hours of restful sleep each night. Physical activity has been proven to help children develop social skills, improve mental health, avoid obesity, and inhibit risk-taking behaviors.
NURSES AND HEALTH ASSISTANTS
All schools have a health assistant or registered nurse available to address any health issues that may arise with our students and to work with our families so our students are healthy and ready to learn.
Strong Tomorrows provides guidance, support, and information for expectant and parenting students at Tulsa Public Schools.
Our program incorporates a dual-generational approach by providing case management services and partnering with high-quality childcare programs like Educare and Community Action Project.
