Good Afternoon OES Families,

This is a pretty quiet week, except for Friday when we have Halloween. Students can dress up if they would like. Please remember that no toy weapons are allowed. Teachers will be doing activities in their classrooms. We will have a virtual parade that we will send out in a link later that day. If your child would like to participate, please make sure your Skyward account is updated.

In order to update your Skyward account, please log into your Skyward account, then select:

Student Information Update

Select student

On the right hand side you will find student personal information release. There are 2 spots that need to be filled. The two spots that need to be checked are:

Directory Information Release

School and District Web/Social Media Release

This release will allow your student to participate in our Virtual Halloween Parade, as well as be in the yearbook.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

We have several students who bring their own phones to school. Many students choose to check their phones into the office, where we can make sure they are safe and not stolen. If your child decides to keep their phone with them, please remind them that the phones should be turned off. There are so many capabilities with smartphones, we need to ensure that no photos or videos are being taken on the playground for everyone’s privacy.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great week!

Good Morning OES Families,

This is a reminder from our PTA:

Today is our Spirit Night at Panda Express on Center in Orem. Eat there today, 10am-11pm and they will donate 20% to our Orem Elementary PTA. Be sure to show them the attached flyer or use the code for online ordering. Happy Eating!

Please see the attached flyer. You will need to show the paper version or a digital version if you go into the store. If you order online, you will need to mention the code that is on the flyer.

We are not having our traditional Halloween parade like we usually do. However, we will have a virtual parade that will be sent out to parents through a link.

If you would like your child/children to participate, as well as be in the yearbook, you will have to update your Skyward account for your child/children. If you do not want your child to participate in the virtual parade, please let their teacher know.

In order to update your Skyward account, please log into your Skyward account, then select:

On the right hand side you will find student personal information release.  There are 2 spots that need to be filled.  The two spots that need to be checked are:

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.

One last reminder, please remind your child/children to bring their mask to school.  We have disposable masks at school in case of emergency, however, we have a very limited supply. A great idea is to have them keep an extra mask in their backpack, so in case they forget they always have a backup. 

Have a great weekend.

Halloween is just around the corner.  There will not be a Halloween parade this year due to the pandemic. Students can still come in costume if they want to.  Please remember not to wear a costume that contains gore and the only masks that can be worn, are the ones we use for personal protection.  Also, no play weapons are allowed.  

Remember to check the lost and found – it’s going to be colder later in the week and students may need their coats.  

Have a nice rest of the week.
