Welcome Back!

We hope you and your family had a restful 4 day weekend. If your student is in grades 3-5, they will be very busy over the next few weeks, preparing for the FSA tests so they can demonstrate what they have learned. You can help your child be successful by making sure your child is at school on time, gets plenty of sleep, eats a healthy breakfast, and comes to school ready to learn.

We have more students returning to on campus learning, from Home Connect, so this week our car lines might move a little more slowly, until our new students acclimate to the arrival and dismissal procedures.

As always, thank you families for being a valued and supportive part of our OES community.

Rally on the Green is Back!

The Foundation for the Oasis School System is excited to host our 8th Annual RALLY ON THE GREEN on Saturday, April 17th!

Arrival and Dismissal Reminders

While we are loading and unloading, please make sure your car remains in park in all car lines.

Our AM car line has been moving quickly. Typically, by 8:10 AM we have moved more than 80 cars through the line. Some cars are lining up prior to 7:50 AM along Oasis Blvd. Please be sure to be courteous upon entering campus in the morning.

In the afternoon front car line, please do not wave, honk, or shout to ask your child to come to you without a staff escort. We instruct our students to wait for an adult, for safety reasons, but when their parent is calling to them, it can be confusing for our students.

If your child is a walker, but you are driving them to school in your vehicle, you must use our car line in the back. In the morning, the front of the school is only for buses and students who arrive as pedestrians or bike riders.

Thank you to our staff and our parents for keeping our car line safe for everyone.

Baked Goods Policy

Going forward, we are no longer requiring treats/food to be individually wrapped. Items must still be store bought and in individual servings (cupcakes, donuts, brownies, etc.). Staff will distribute with gloves.

Mind Up

This week our focus is Lesson 14: Performing Acts of Kindness. For more details, view the sample lesson.

FSA Dates Are Finalized

All students in grades 3,4, and 5 will be assessed on the Florida Statewide Assessments (FSA) in Math and Reading. Grade 5 will also be assessed on Science. Per the Florida Department of Education (FDOE), no remote administrations are available for any statewide summative assessments. All students will have to test while on campus.
