Kravis Summer Arts Camp
If you have students who are artistically talented, please contact Ms. West. She will provide them with information for the Kravis Summer Arts Camp. If we sign the student up soon, we will be able to apply for their scholarship. Transportation will also be provided. Please contact Ms. West with a name as soon as possible!
Kravis Summer Arts Camp is a two-week camp for students entering grades 1-12 each summer that exposes students to artistic experiences of all types. The elementary and middle school programs have been held at Will Rogers College Junior High.
This is a great opportunity for enrichment for our students!
American Fidelity is the plan provider for the district's Section 125 plan. This plan allows employees to maintain pre-tax benefits such as medical, vision, dental, flexible spending, Health Savings Accounts (HSA), cancer and accident insurance. American Fidelity is willing to provide education and communication for the benefits that TPS offers, especially the HSA.
On Wednesday, January 20, 2016 , American Fidelity will be sending representatives to our site to see employees.
It is an IRS requirement that employees visit with an American Fidelity representative to sign their Section 125 election form. This form acknowledges the benefits that are available to them on a pre-tax basis for the coming plan year to avoid IRS penalties to the district.
Distribution of W-2's
The W-2s for 2015 will be distributed to work sites during the last week of January. Distribution to the work sites, as opposed to mailing them to home addresses, saves the district over $3,000 annually.
W-2s can be viewed using Employee Self Service (ESS) two or three days before they arrive at the work sites. Instructions for viewing in ESS are shown below:
- Go to the TPS Website - www.tulsaschools.org
- Place your cursor over "Employees" - in blue bar at top right
- Select "Employee Self Service"
- Once again select "Employee Self Service"
- Select "Pay/Tax Information"
- Select "W-2"
- To view the actual W-2, click "View W-2 Image" to the far right of your name
- If you need help call 918-746-6232 and select Option 0
