A Tulsa Public Schools teacher has died of COVID-19, nine days after her husband also died from COVID, the district confirmed.
The district is not identifying the teacher.
TPS issued a statement Wednesday about the death:
“It is heartbreaking to lose any member of our Tulsa Public Schools family. Every loss of a team member means that others have lost a child, parent, spouse, grandparent, aunt, uncle, friend, colleague, or mentor. When team members pass away, we focus on doing everything that we can to wrap our arms around those left behind – family members, colleagues, and students – to ensure that they have the supports they need as they navigate through such an extraordinarily difficult time.”
