Dear Senators,
I am writing to ask that you please vote no on SB 520.
We elected Ryan Walters in a primary, a primary runoff and a general election and now Sen. Adam Pugh wants to strip the ability to grant accreditation from Ryan Walters and the Board of Education. We are asking for the following senators to vote no. Without accreditation, there will be no teeth to hold schools accountable to support parental rights.
Thank you

Report SB 658 Violations to the State Department of Education!

SB 658 is an important medical choice bill for parents. it went into effect July 1st of 2021. This bill provides many protections which are detailed here, but perhaps the biggest change is that schools are now required to inform parents that vaccine exemptions are an option!

Since July 2021, OKHPR has continued to demand that all Oklahoma school districts follow this law. According to SB 658, the Oklahoma State Department of Education is supposed to ensure that EVERY school district is following this portion of the law. Thanks to our new State Superintendent, Ryan Walters, the State Department of Education is working hard to do so.

You can now report a school that is not following this law directly to the State Department of Education here.

In a recent edition of The Roar Release, we shared the names of many schools in Oklahoma that are violating state law, SB 658. After sharing that list we were able to remove a few schools that updated their website and social media due to your amazing advocacy! Unfortunately, we also received more reports of violations and have added several more schools to our list.

Is your school following the law? Click the button below to find out!

You can help us compile a more exact list by checking your local school district’s website. Click on the enrollment section and see if your school is including the required language when mentioning vaccination requirements. You can also check their social media. It is required by law that EVERY notice about vaccination requirements has the quoted language! This includes social media posts or email notices.

If your school is not following the law, please report that to us HERE so we can update our list! You can also print a sample letter explaining how the school has violated SB 658 from your membership dashboard. We recommend mailing this letter to the school, superintendent, or school board. You should also alert your State Senator and State Representative.

We need your help to make sure that this important section of state law is followed. This week we want to focus our efforts on the Oklahoma State School Board. The State Department of Education is responsible for ensuring that this law is followed by all school districts, so we must make sure they are aware! We have included sample email and phone scripts as well as contact information to make this as easy as possible!

  1. Copy and paste the following emails into the ‘bcc’ portion of your email. These are the emails for all of the members of the Oklahoma State Board of Education. You can use the following sample email as well!sarah.lepak@ok.gov, suzanne.reynolds@ok.gov, katie.quebedea@ok.gov, donald.burdick@ok.gov, kendra.wesson@ok.gov

Sample email:

“To whom it may concern,
I am emailing because I am a resident of _______ school district. I noticed that the school is in violation of SB 658. This law went into effect on July 2021 and it states that Schools and universities must notify parents and students that they may opt-out of vaccination mandates using legally allowed exemptions on their website and in all notices regarding vaccine requirements. The law also states that it is the State Department of Education’s job to ensure that school districts are following SB 658.

Please let me know what is being done to bring the school district into compliance with the law.

2. Second, please contact State Superintendent of Education Ryan Walters at 405-521-3301. You may use the following phone script.

“Hi I am calling because I am a resident of _______ school district. I noticed that they are in violation of SB 658 because they are not informing parents about vaccine exemptions on their website or in a notice sent out on (date). I wanted to contact your office to ensure that this is addressed.”

Lastly, share this blog and the image at the top of this page with your friends and family to spread the word that ‘No Shots, No School, Not True!”

Resources related to vaccine law can be found on the resources page of our website. Here you will find the Oklahoma vaccine exemption form (which is used for school or daycare entry), read vaccine law, and read our vaccine exemption FAQ which includes information on what facilities are required to accept a vaccine exemption, how to fill out the form, what to do if your exemption is denied, and how to report a school that is violating the law.

Republican Senators Select Greg McCortney (Ada) as Senate Pro Tem Designee- What Do We Do Now?

Despite today’s outcome, we are still winners because we have educated Oklahomans about the process of a secret leadership vote that many are not aware of. This vote today is mostly symbolic, and today’s winner (PRO TEM DESIGNEE) will get access to the Senate Campaign Funds that can be used to influence the OFFICIAL Leadership vote that will take place after this year’s elections in November. Read that again, this is NOT over yet! There are nearly a dozen Senate races (all districts with an odd number) that could still flip this Pro Tem Leadership vote, including McCortney’s own seat in Ada.
We are asking all of you to do a few things to try to change this outcome.
1. Share this video, especially with people in Ada.
2. Donate $10.00 for each Senate race that is open (120.00 or more)
3. Register to vote as a Republican (remember only Republican senators get to pick their Leader since they are in Majority)
4. Work a Senate campaign in your area or near by (coming soon).
5. Pray!
We are dedicated to heavily vetting these new candidates and we do mostly know which current senators voted for McCortney.  We are adding questions related to this leadership issue in our candidate survey as well. Please take this frustration and DO SOMETHING! We must get out of the boat, and do something new or bigger to change outcomes. One of our greatest enemies is not an individual but apathy.

Donate to okhpr.com & mark your calendar for these dates to remember:
April 5th  – Candidate Filing

June 18th Primary Election
These are vital to our success!
We are dedicated to staying the course. Please join us as we cannot do this alone.

Oklahoma’s Largest Health & Parental Rights Group Weighs in on Upcoming Senate Pro Tempore Election To Decide The Second Most Powerful Official in the State

Oklahoma’s Largest Health & Parental Rights Group Weighs in on Upcoming Senate Pro Tempore Election To Decide The Second Most Powerful Official in the State

For Immediate Release

January 29, 2024

On February 12, 2024 Oklahoma’s Republican Senate members will select a Pro Tempore designate to lead the Senate. We have grave concerns about one of the candidates, Senator Greg McCortney and his cumulative F-rating. How could a Republican get an F-rating on issues of personal freedom? Legislators get graded down for not hearing bills if they are Chairmen, for voting incorrectly, as well as authoring bills that have a negative impact on health and parental rights. Here are some of his actions:

2018-Voted to remove the personal and religious exemptions for school children (SB1123 and SB83).

2020-Authored bill to track vaccine data of children (SB925) & force businesses to advertise vaccines (SB924)

2019-Supported forcing parents to take a re-education class if they opt out of even one single vaccine (Rule by Oklahoma State Department of Health)

2020-Voted No to prevent state government vaccine mandates (HB 2335).

2022-Stopped a bill to allow health workers and those in workforce to have the choice whether or not to take the Covid vaccine OR keep their job. (SB765).

McCortney has consistently proven to be a proponent of big government and favoring big industries over individuals. Ask your Republican State Senator NOT to support Greg McCortney for Senate Pro Tempore designate on February 12, 2024. With our federal government and national security in turmoil, Oklahoma cannot afford to have leaders who will not protect individual rights. As a voter, you have a right to be involved in asking questions about this vote process as you elect your senator to not just vote how they say they will on the campaign trail, but to be part of the solution, as well. We know the solution to many of our problems is simply poor leadership.

So far there are two others running against McCortney: David Bullard who has an A+, and Casey Murdock who has an A rating. I encourage our over 20,000 official members statewide to politely inform your state senator of this record and if your state senator agrees with McCortney then it may be time to assess their record as well.

For more information and assistance with finding your state senator, text 405-251-8915.

Empowering Change: How Your Advocacy Changed The Oklahoma Exemption Form!

Did The Oklahoma State Department of Health hide the exemption form and purposely make it harder to fill out since exemption rates are increasing? OKHPR worked with the Governor and Health Department’s Chief of Staff to get it fixed!

The Oklahoma vaccine exemption process has changed again, this time FOR GOOD!

A few weeks ago OKHPR was made aware that the former link to find vaccine exemptions on the State Department of Health website was now gone. We made sure a copy was available on our website and then got to work to find out what was going on.

The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) made a number of changes to the vaccine exemption form. The biggest change was that instead of a parent turning in the exemption form into their school and then the school sending this form to the State Department of Health, parents were being told to send this form themselves to the State Department of Health who will then send it to the schools after it had been approved or denied.

This was creating obstacles for parents to turn in their exemption form and a backlog of exemptions at the Immunization Department.

OKHPR was able to make several changes to the exemption process:

  • The exemption form is now available on the OSDH website.
  • The completed exemption form may be turned in by the parent to either the school OR the Immunization Department of OSDH
  • The OSDH website now explicitly states that the child is allowed to attend school while the exemption is being processed by OSDH.
  • The exemption form no longer uses the words “denied”. Exemption forms may be returned to the school if completed incorrectly, but no child will be denied an exemption. The child may continue to attend school while the new exemption is being filled out.

Check out the newly updated exemption form here!

Taxpayer Dollars Being Used to Push Sexual Related Agendas

Honestly OKC is a 501(c)(3) organization that is in partnership with the Oklahoma City County Health Department. On Instagram, they state that “Honestly is building a movement to improve sexual health outcomes for youth”. One way they are trying to achieve this is with the Honestly Coloring Book (pictured above) which is being distributed to children. The material I am sharing is targeting our children, and many would say, indoctrinating them into alternative lifestyles and dangerous gender changing surgeries. You can view the coloring book in it’s entirety here.

Do you support this use of your tax dollars??

Important Upcoming Elections!

Tuesday November 14th: Many counties across the state will have an election next week on November 14th. These votes span a number of topics such as propositions, bonds, city council, mayoral elections and more. Check and see if your county has an election here. You can vote early on November 9th or 10th from 8 AM – 6 PM at your local county election board.

December 12th: This election includes the general election for State Senate District 32 and the primary election for State Representative District 39.

For State Senate District 32, OKHPR has endorsed Dusty Deevers who received an A rating on his OKHPR Candidate Survey. Senate District 32 covers Commanche county, including Elgin, Fletcher, Medicine Park, Cache, Indiahoma, and parts of Lawton and Fort Sill.

This election in particular is extremely important because it has the power to flip Senate leadership! A lot of RINO’s are willing to throw this seat to the democrat because Deever’s is such a liberty minded candidate.

Check out the interview with Dusty Deevers Democrat opponent, is this who you want representing Oklahomans at the State Capitol?

We are asking for everyone to donate $32 to Dusty Deevers for District 32! if $32 is out of your budget please donate $5-$10. Every dollar counts! You can donate to Dusty Deevers online here, or mail a check to 379 NE Miller Ave Elgin, OK 73538

State Representative District 39 will also be facing an election on December 12th. House District 39 covers Oklahoma county, including parts of Edmond. We will update more about this specific race next week!

Would You Want Your Child Filling Out This Survey?

If you saw this information from your schools newsletter would this capture your attention or would it properly inform you that this survey could reveal intimate details of your personal family life? (Source: Norman Public Schools had this information included at the bottom of their newsletter. Many parents did not see this notice and many are upset that they were not properly informed about opt out options).

We reported on this two years ago and now we are seeing the real world consequences! In 2021, Oklahoma Representatives Vancuren (Owasso), Davis (Broken Arrow) and Waldron (Tulsa) of the House and Haste (Broken Arrow) of the Senate worked to pass a law that mandates most public schools provide students with a survey regarding a variety of issues with a focus on alcohol, tobacco, other drug use, mental health, academic failure, and violence. This survey is being administered to public school children by the OK Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse in the name of federal funding to our children. Even though students are allowed to opt-out, many students have felt pressured and parents are unaware that it is even going on. We need to fix this and need your help! 

Check out the surveys for yourself here. Would you feel comfortable with your 6th grader filling out this survey or your 8th, 10th, and 12th grader filling out this survey without your knowledge?

If this survey is concerning to you please contact your schools principal and ask about the opt out waiver.
