Broken Arrow Public Schools (BAPS) would like to remind parents/legal guardians that the State of Oklahoma requires all students entering into kindergarten to have the following immunizations:
• 5 – DTP/DTaP
• 4 – Polio
• 2 – MMR
• 2 - Hepatitis A
• 3 – Hepatitis B
• 1 – Varicella (Chicken Pox)
Students entering seventh grade are required to receive one Tdap booster for immunizations against tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis. This is a booster to the DTP students received before kindergarten. Students will not be allowed to pick up their schedules without this immunization.
You are encouraged to contact your child’s healthcare provider as soon as possible to arrange for these immunizations.
To assist in obtaining these immunizations, BAPS is once again teaming up with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma to offer the Caring Van program to eligible students in August. A registered nurse will be available during the dates and times listed below to administer free immunizations to students who:
* Are eligible for SoonerCare (Oklahoma Medicaid)
* Are Native American
* Are Uninsured
Please note that if the student does not meet at least ONE of the above criteria, he or she will be referred to a private physician for required immunizations.
A parent/legal guardian must accompany the student and a current copy of your student’s immunization record is also required. After receiving the immunizations, a copy of the updated records should be brought to your student’s school site.
The following are the dates, times and locations for when the Oklahoma Caring Van will be available within the BAPS district.

For more than 95 years, the campus located at the end of East College Street successfully served the students of Broken Arrow Public Schools - first as the high school and later as North Intermediate. In February 2015, the Broken Arrow community overwhelmingly passed a bond issue that would allow BAPS to repurpose the site into Kirkland Activities Complex. The first phase of this process, which will include renovations to the gym, auditorium and addition of a soccer field, begins at the end of July when the classroom buildings will be removed to make way for new facilities.
As part of the district’s efforts to honor the site’s significant history, bricks from the site will be available to the Broken Arrow community. Patrons interested in obtaining bricks may visit the parking lot on Detroit Street northeast of the auditorium on the following dates and times:
Wednesday, July 27, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, July 30, 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Monday, Aug. 1, 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The commemorative bricks will be available on a first come, first-served basis with a maximum of ten bricks per person.

For more than 95 years, the campus located at the end of East College Street successfully served the students of Broken Arrow Public Schools academically and personally. First as a high school and then as North Intermediate, this site contains a great deal of history and fond memories for generations of Broken Arrow students.
In 2012, the district determined the classroom building at this school site was at the end of its life due to numerous structural and safety issues. Because our community overwhelmingly approved a bond issue in February 2015, funds are available to repurpose the site into the Kirkland Activities Complex despite the budget crisis, allowing us to preserve a location important to our district and patrons. This complex will feature a full-size competition soccer field, renovated auditorium and gymnasium, and eventually a swimming facility for both the district and community use.
Because we know this site is important to our community, we have taken a number of steps to ensure we are preserving the past for our alumni while still creating the best opportunities for our current and future students.
One of those steps was making certain that the mosaic tiger, created by students in the 1970s, was safely removed. This piece of history is being stored and will be placed at the Kirkland facility in the future. We were also able to commemorate the large ash tree located in the south end zone of Kirkland Field, affectionately referred to as the Touchdown Tree. Thanks to the efforts of Broken Arrow alumni in partnership with Broken Arrow Public Schools, the Touchdown Tree will be displayed for years to come in the form of a Tiger carving.
Planning for the next phase of construction has begun and soon the classroom buildings will begin to come down. Questions have begun to arise about obtaining a souvenir brick from the old exterior, and we are happy to say that these will be available to Broken Arrow patrons. Please check back to our website later this summer for more information on this.
With all of this being said, change of any kind is hard, especially when those changes involve traditions passed from generation to generation. But even though the buildings may not look the same, what hasn’t changed is the sense of pride in being a Broken Arrow Tiger.
