Good Afternoon OES Families! School is now in full swing and we will welcome Kindergarten students this Tuesday. Don’t forget that Kindergarten Back to School night is today from 3:00pm – 5:00pm. You should be able to see who your student’s Kindergarten teacher in Skyward.

Preschool begins Tuesday, August 27, 2019. Please remember that all parents must use the main school doors and show their pass as they walk by the office. This is for our school safety. We want to make sure our school is safe for everyone, therefore everyone who enters the school must enter the front doors and check in at the office. Thank you for helping us with this important issue.

There are a couple of other safety issues that I need to remind everyone about. Please do not park in the red drop off and school bus zones. This causes a bit of a problem for the flow of traffic. As always, please remember to drive slowly and avoid distractions such as cell phones as you drop your children off at school. Please re-train your children to use the crosswalks when crossing to come to school.

Supervision is provided for students 15 minutes prior to the start of the school day. The supervision times are as follows:

7:45 – 8:05am for the early bird students.

9:00am – 9:15am for the later gator students.

Afternoon Kindergarten student supervision begins at 12:20pm – 12:35pm in the back of the school near the Kindergarten doors.

Please make sure your children don’t come too early, we want to make sure our students are safe and supervised.

The PTA is in need of volunteers for the hearing screening tomorrow, August 27, 2019. Here is the message from Jana Hyatt, our PTA President:

We need 4 people to help with hearing screening on Tue Aug 27th. 2 in the morning from 9-11:30 and 2 in the afternoon from 12-2. Please let Jana Hyatt know if you can help. My phone number is 385-207-8883.

Our school has a new t-shirt design. Please go to:

When you order, please check the “pick up” option. The t-shirts will be delivered to the school and we will get the orders to the students. If you choose the “shipping” option, there will be an added cost. Orders for t-shirts will be available until September 6, 2019. This way we will have them just in time for our school carnival which is on September 23, 2019. More carnival details to come.

Each year families must register for the free/reduced lunch plan. If you haven’t registered, or would like to know if you qualify, please see the attached link.

Kindergarten begins Tuesday, August 27, 2019. The city of Orem has notified us that the Orem Police Department will no longer provide crossing guards for Kindergarten students. Please see the attached flyer:


Thank you for your help in these matters. I really appreciate the support you give to your children and our school.

Have a great week!
