Dear OES Families,

The district has created 3 days during the school year to assist teachers in meeting the instructional needs of their students by providing additional individual teacher preparation time. The following days are MINIMAL DAYS:

All of the elementary schools that are on the modified extended day schedule (this is what OES is), will have the following schedule:

Kindergarten and Preschool will not have school on these days.  Teachers in these grades will send home school work for the students to complete on these days.  Students in grades 1st – 6th will have the following schedule:

Early Birds:  8:00am – 11:30am

Later Gators: 9:15am – 12:45pm

Our lunch schedule will change to accommodate the schedule, but lunch and breakfast will be served on these days.  

If you have any questions, please let me know.  I wanted to get this information out to our families so they could plan accordingly.  


Thank you for your support.
