Principal Message – September 9, 2019

By Principal's Message

Sept. 9, 2019

Good Afternoon OES Families,

As you can feel, the fall weather has shown itself.  Please remind your children to bring jackets because the mornings can have a crisp feel.

This week is pretty quiet, however it is a good time to remind everyone about the Evacuation Drill/Walk to School Day on September 20th.  Don’t forget that this is an AM common day.

All students in grades 1st – 6th will come to school at 8:00am and go home at 2:15pm.  The AM kindergarten students will come at 8:00am – 10:45am and the PM kindergarten students will come at 11:30am – 2:15pm.  Students who are in Mrs. Ridge’s class will ride the bus and come at their regular time. Individual arrangements will be made for the students in Mrs. Ridge’s class.

Please remember to update your child’s Skyward account with emergency contacts and any other pertinent information. All adults picking up students MUST be a guardian or listed as an emergency contact and MUST bring a picture ID.  We conduct these drills so that in case of an emergency, we will be as prepared as possible.

We are preparing for our school carnival which will take place on Sept. 23, 2019.  The following message is from the PTA:

The carnival is our biggest event and our only fundraiser for PTA. We are in need of several more volunteers to fill the carnival shifts. We have two shifts 3:30-5:30 and 5:30-7:30 (your kids are also welcome to help with you if you would like). You will be helping run provided activities and games.

Look Within
