Principal’s Message – May 24, 2021

May 24, 2021

Dear OES Families,

Welcome to our last week of school!  The following are a few reminders about his week:

Tuesday, May 25, 2021 – Field Day – NOTE:  This is a common PM day, students in grades 1st – 6th will come from 9:15am – 2:30pm.  There is no schedule change for Kindergarten students.

Wednesday, May 26, 2021 – Last day of Kindergarten

Thursday, May 27, 2021 – Last day of school for students in grades 1st – 6th.  This is also a common day, but because it is the last day of school, the schedule is:

9:15am – 10:45am

Thank you for helping us finish the final week of the school year strong. We are looking forward to celebrating our students this week in many fun-filled activities and events. This afternoon, all parents and employees will receive a District communication regarding assigned school start times for the fall.  While I am supportive of the learning impacts for students and the professional time allocated for teachers,  I anticipate there will be a lot of questions from parents and staff about the new schedule. 

 As questions and concerns surface in your mind, I ask that you keep them until next week. As a school, SCC, and PTA, we will find time this summer to think through our structure and find solutions to some of our challenges, together. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we finish this week strong, and then address together next year’s schedule during the summer.

We would like to thank our community for the amazing support and the patience you have shown during this school year.  We look forward to the summer break and a new school year next August.  

May you all have a safe and happy summer break.
