The normal school day for the instruction of students in the Tannehill Public Schools shall be in accordance with the Oklahoma Statutes and the regulations of the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
The regular school session may be temporarily altered by the board upon recommendation by the superintendent when the best interests of the district and the students would be served.
The superintendent may close schools, delay the opening of schools, or dismiss school early for emergency reasons to protect the health and safety of students and staff. However, any deviation that decreases the school day to less than six hours will be reported to the Department of Education, Accreditation Section within 72 hours.
The superintendent is directed to prepare a regulation that defines the school day for the various classes.
