Storm Shelter Notes
Due to the dedication of its patrons on the April 7, 2015 Bond Issue, the Oologah-Talala School District is providing community storm shelters to protect area residents during tornado outbreaks, working in cooperation with the area's emergency services.
The storm shelters will be available and open to the public after school class dismissal on school days, full-time on weekends and school holidays and vacations, and during after-school athletic or activity events.
The storm shelters will be opened any time the school district is under a TORNADO WARNING or an adjoining county is under a tornado warning if a recognized path-calculated by television radar system projects the storm to hit the Oologah or Talala areas.
OTEMS ambulance, the Northwest Rogers County Fire Protection District and Oologah Police Department will ensure the shelter is opened when needed and emergency services are available consistent with the other needs created by such storms.
Recognized storm radars are those used by KJRH-TV2, Newson6 (KOTV-TV6), KTUL-TV8, and KOKI-TV23 (Fox 23) and their affiliates which use their radar path-calculation systems.
Residents should respond to the shelter immediately upon such a projection, as being caught in a car on the road when a tornado hits is extremely dangerous and the time to seek shelter is before the storm actually reaches the Oologah-Talala area.
Cars need to be parked in the marked parking areas only so access is granted to fire or emergency vehicles.
Shelters are equipped with battery backups and can provide enough electricity to ensure proper lighting for multiple hours in cases of power utility disruption.
Access to power for charging of electronic devices or other equipment requiring electricity is not provided.
Restroom facilities and drinking water are available, and most cell phones should be able to at least send and receive text messages within the shelter despite the reinforced construction, which is designed to withstand an EF-5 tornado.
Hand-held two-way radio transmission or reception will range from low-grade to impossible, and Wi-Fi or hard-wired computer hookups are NOT available.
Great News! You can now pay your child's lunch account with PayPal! Parents simply log into the "Parent Portal" go to the lunch account tab and use the PayPal button to complete the transaction! Even if you don't have a PayPal account, you can use the PayPal Guest login to add money to the account using a debit or credit card. Another great feature is the ability to divide the money with more than one student, so you don't have to worry about logging into each one of your students. You will be charged a $2.00 administrative fee for the convenience of paying online.
If you can't remember your Parent Portal login or password or do not know your login information email or call LaReesa Moore at 918.443.6055 or firstname.lastname@example.org
