Good Afternoon OES Families,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, October 19th, 2021 we welcome students back from fall break.  We also begin Red Ribbon Week.  Red Ribbon Week serves as a catalyst to mobilize communities, educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. We will be having some fun activities, pledging to be drug free and some great recess activities. The week will give our students the opportunity to wear different things to support Red Ribbon Week.

Tuesday – Turn your back on drugs-Backwards shirt/clothes

Wednesday – Hats off to being drug free-Hats

Thursday – Love yourself! Live drug free-Wear your favorite color

Friday – Saying no to drugs is no sweat-Sweats or PJS

Beginning Monday, October 25th, 2021, the crosswalk on 400 South 400 West, will be moved to 400 South 600 West.  This is due to the construction of the water tank that will be built across the street from the school. The new location of the crosswalk will be the only way for students to cross to and from 400 South.  If your family walks to school and uses the crosswalk, please let your children know that they will need to use the crosswalk at the new location, as the other one will be removed.

If you have any questions, please let me know.  

 We are continuing to be cautious about hand washing, sanitizing and making sure touch points around the school are cleaned often to protect our students and staff from COVID.  Please remember to keep your student home if they have a cough, sore throat, runny nose and/or a fever. 

 With Halloween around the corner, we are also being cautious with our celebrations.  We are still planning to have classroom parties, but we will not have a Halloween parade.  Teachers will take pictures of their class, and a compilation of the class pictures will be sent out to parents later that day.
