We have received inquiries regarding enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year. Please keep them until further notice. If you would like to mail them to the school please feel free to do so.
The DBCS Board and Administration want to ensure the parents, students and staff of our concern for its safety during the coronavirus outbreak. Understanding the Governor has issued a “shelter in place” order for nineteen (19) counties including Tulsa, we hope you will be extremely cautious in taking care of your day to day needs.
Sad to say, this catastrophic event brings out the worst in some people. Criminals, scammers and other undesirables are trying to profit from the innocent, sick and vulnerable. Therefore, we are asking you to be extremely alert to thieves and scams. This is especially true when you need to take care of necessary grocery and medical needs. Finally, always remember that “social distancing” works. It limits the spread of the coronavirus. We recommend you do not venture away from home unless it is absolutely necessary. We look forward to reuniting with you when this catastrophic event is over.
We thank all parents, staff and Administrators for their support as we gain clarity on how things will be in the coming weeks.
Rest assured that we will provide tools and resources to our students and families so that students have the ability to continue to learn.
March 19, 2020
As you are already aware, the President of the United States has declared a “National Emergency” for our country in regards to the “SARS-CoV-2” which causes “coronavirus disease 2019” (COVID-19). In this regard, a number of facilities providing services to citizens, with the exception of grocery stores and pharmaceutical companies, have temporarily shut down operations. To this end, the Oklahoma State Board of Education has announced that all Oklahoma public schools, including charters schools, will be closed until April 6, 2020. If there is a need to extend the closure date past April 6, we will notify you immediately through the news media.
During this difficult period, we are recommending that you seek other child care options for your child. Additionally, we encourage all families to follow recommended guidelines to protect themselves from COVID 19 and any other virus, especially respiratory viruses. We respectfully request that you review and implement the following strategies to slow and eliminate the spread of this disease.
· Minimize play dates for your child with other children.
· Cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
· Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water for twenty (20) seconds.
· When soap and water are not available, use alcohol (60%) based hand sanitizer.
· Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
· Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
· Stay away from work, school or other people who are sick with respiratory symptoms (fever or cough),
We want to assure you that we are closely monitoring this current crisis in cooperation with local, state and national health officials. You will receive regular updates of any new announcements and resources available through our website: dbcstulsa.org under Parent/Guardian Information.
Finally we want to express our deep appreciation for your continued support for Deborah Brown Community School. By closely working together, we will overcome the current adversity confronting us.
