Oklahoma Teacher Walkout

Oklahoma Teacher Walkout 

Oklahoma Teacher Walkout 

Dates and Times: 9:00 a.m - 5:00 p.m., Tuesdays - Fridays, starting April 3rd. Right now we have volunteers signing up through April 13th.

Student Grade Level: 6th - 12th


To support parents and students during the upcoming Oklahoma school closure, Living Arts will be offering programming for a maximum of 30 Junior High and High School students each day, Tuesdays - Thursdays, from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. 6th - 12th grade students will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, and parents/guardians must agree to all guidelines on the first day of a student's attendance through a signed permission slip. Students that do not follow guidelines will not continue participation. Programming will include the presentation of various movies, as well as step-by-step art activities. Visits to other arts organizations within the area may also occur. Living Arts is not offering a replacement for the tireless efforts of our Oklahoma teachers, but rather a safe space for student creativity during this difficult time in public education.


- Can a student leave Living Arts without a parent/guardian?

No. Students must stay with Living Arts volunteers and staff at all times, unless signed out by a parent or guardian. Students 18 and over can sign themselves out with a parent phone call.

- Do students have to stay the whole day?

No. As long as students are signed out by a parent/guardian, they do not have to stay the whole day. We recommend that students participate in at least ½ day increments.

No. Students can attend as desired, but we encourage full attendance.
