We are looking for (local) business to sponsor the following things to help support Oakley:
- Grooming services
- Veterinarian care
- And food!
Please contact me (Kristin Froning) if you know of a business that might be interested in helping support Oakley!
Field Day Fun
What a difference a day can make! We were so thankful that we were able to reschedule our All School Field Trip/Field Day to allow for lots of fun in the sun! It was a great day to celebrate as a WHOLE school! Field day events (thank you to Mrs. Grinnell and Mrs. VanHulle) along with bounce houses and playtime at Scarlet's Playground made for a fun (and tiring) day!
We couldn’t have done this without the an amazing crew of parent volunteers. We had about 380 kids and over 100 chaperones. We know that there were several volunteer who were unable to join us due to the date change. We thank you all and look forward to more adventure next year!
An event like this takes a lot of time to plan. There are so many parts that need to coordinate from finding a venue, coordinating transportation and coming up with stations that the kids would enjoy to name only a few. Thank you to our PTA President Jessica Maurer long with board members Debbie O'Rouke, Bobby Sue Young, Jessica Waxman, Sarah Garrison, Karina Ortega and Val Novaes.

Scope of work:
- New lighting throughout the building

- Gymnasium addition
- Restroom upgrades/improvements
- New carpet throughout
- New Roof
- Entrance Canopy Modifications
- Security Upgrades
- Network Upgrades
- Cafeteria Renovations (current gymnasium will be the new cafeteria)

Optional COVID testing now available at the ESC
The District is now offering optional COVID testing to our staff, students, and parents. Both Rapid and PCR tests are available. The testing will take place at the Educational Services Center (850 Ladd Road, Building D Walled Lake, MI 48390) on Tuesdays and Fridays from 2-7 p.m.
The COVID testing staff, provided by a third party, will be responsible for letting people in the side door on the south side of the building.
· If you have insurance, your insurance provider will be billed.
· If you do not have insurance, there is a cost of $110.00 for a PCR test and $50.00 for a rapid test - This comes as a result of the Federal Government no longer providing funding for testing.
There will be signage placed both inside and outside of the building. To set up an appointment for testing, please complete this requisition form.
