TULSA, Okla. — Tulsa Public School leaders are reinforcing safety measures for athletic events and adding additional measures.

The change comes after Terron Yarbrough died after a shooting at McLain High School's homecoming game on Sept. 30.

In a letter to parents and families signed by Superintendent Deborah Gist and Executive Editor of Athletics Mick Wilson the district outlined some changes for attending athletic events.
