October 30- Vacation Day - No School in Session


I wanted to send each of you a huge THANK YOU. We all knew this year was going to be difficult and present us with many challenges. Each of you, families, students and staff, have far exceeded my expectations. Your flexibility and adaptability to our ever changing world has been tremendous. Our continued work together is what makes Abrams a great place to work and go to school.

If your family is experiencing concerns/issues dealing with school, family life, or anything else, please reach out. Our lives can be difficult during normal times and with these changing times, many more families are experiencing concerns. The school is here to support each and every family in the best way that we can. With some kids not in school, it is more difficult for us to know when there are concerns or issues so please don't hesitate to contact us.

Mrs. Michalski

Hearing Screenings

Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to provide hearing screenings for grades 4K - 3rd like we have in the past. We are able to screen individuals by request. If you have a concern about your child's hearing, please contact Tara Foht at tara.foht@of-ps.org and she will be in contact with you. Thank you

Nurse's Notes

Oconto County Public Health Department will not be able to host any school based or other vaccine clinics this school year due to managing COVID-19.

Please see the attached handout, which shares a letter from OCPH and information as to where families can receive the flu vaccine this year.
