Minimal Days

By Announcements No Comments

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:

October 16, 2019

December 20, 2019

March 13, 2020

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.

Thank you so much to everyone for making our PTA Carnival so fantastic.  There were so many volunteers that spent countless hours making sure that our carnival was successful. 

We have a few items that are in our lost and found left at our carnival – phone, water bottles, cash, sunglasses.  If you are missing anything, please contact the office.

I am excited to inform you that Orem Elementary is not on the SafeUT app.  Please visit this link to learn more about this resource. https://healthcare.utah.edu/uni/safe-ut/faqs.php#
