Parent/Teacher Conferences

Save the dates! We will be conducting Parent-Teacher Conferences differently than in years past. We will not have any face to face conferences this fall. Instead, we will have conferences on the phone or Google Meet. Your child’s teacher will send you information to choose a time to sign up. Conferences will be held on Tuesday, October 27 from 4-7PM and Wednesday, October 28 (early release day) from 3-7PM.

Thank you for your cooperation and continued support in your child’s education.

You may come in our lobby and sign your child in. If your child is old enough to get in the doors by themselves, notify us the same way and we can help them sign in.


If you are picking up early - you can sign your child out in the lobby. We can make sure your child is here waiting or call for them if need be. Please remember to park in the parking lot and come in to the OES Lobby. Please do not park in the drop-off zone in front of school.

To our A.M. & P.M. Walkers and Bikers -

The OES office has received several reports of students walking or biking through the parking lots to get to OES in the morning and especially after school. This is not safe. Please remind your child that they need to bike/walk on the sidewalks around the NOSD Campus.

**OES MORNING DROP-OFF & AFTERNOON PICK-UP PROCEDURE & SAFETY REMINDERS**

Thank you to all for your cooperation & patience with the new procedures. Things are running much more smoothly!

Both cars & buses are using the front parking lot area driveway & curbside drop-off areas for OES students.


A few Important Safety Reminders for Arrival Procedures:


  • Please do not arrive early! Supervision & student drop-off time begins at 8:25 AM. Vehicles should not be lined up prior to that time. Follow directions on posted signs.
  • Cars stay to the right of the approach/drop-off lane. Yield to buses moving into the left lane as they approach the elementary parking lot area near the sign that says "Student Drop" and "OHS-District offices". (see photo below)
  • NO stopping of cars on the curve at the end of the driveway along 57 as you approach the OES building (to allow for buses to make the turn).
  • Students ready: coat on, mask on, backpack closed & ready to exit vehicle
  • PLEASE NOTE: Students exit on right side of vehicle curbside (not into traffic). *Please move car seat/booster seat to the right side of vehicle if possible. THIS IS A BIG SAFETY CONCERN as cars & buses move past on the left side!
  • Only the student should be exiting the car (unless needing assistance out of a car seat buckle or harness) to allow for quicker departure.
  • Watch for other cars & buses as you pull away from the curb to exit and travel in the left lane. YIELD TO BUSES!
  • All students enter the building starting at 8:25 AM. Students who bike or walk to school should not be arriving prior to 8:25 AM.

A few Important Safety Reminders for Dismissal Procedures:


  • Please do not arrive early! Supervision & student pick-up time begins at 3:40 PM. The 4K & 5K students pack up a few minutes earlier at 3:30 PM in order to get to their areas on time. ALL STUDENTS DISMISS AT 3:40 PM. *Wednesday Early Release Dismissal is at 2:50 PM. Vehicles should not be lined up prior to that time. Vehicles parked in that lane will be asked to park in the lot or circle the parking lot until dismissal time (similar to airport procedures).
  • PLEASE NOTE: Students enter on right side of vehicle curbside (not into traffic on left side). *Please move car seat/booster seat to the right side of vehicle if possible. THIS IS A BIG SAFETY CONCERN as cars & buses move past on the left side!
  • Watch for other cars & buses as you pull away from the curb to exit and travel in the left lane. Yield to buses!


Thank you for your attention and following of these safety procedures. Be patient and courteous of others in the parking lot. Thank you.

Bus Information

Please call Michelle in the OES office if a change ever needs to be made.


*Instructions & reminders from the bus company:

  • Students ages 5+ wear a mask on the bus.
  • Students follow seating chart: younger students sit in the front; siblings sit together; students are arranged according to bus stops
  • **Be on time for bus pick-up...buses are running a tight schedule. If your child misses the bus, the bus must complete its run and drop-off all other students at school. Call the bus company and they will advise you if a bus is able to come back for your child or if you need to provide transportation. If this happens frequently, you will be contacted by the bus company.
  • **There will not be bus passes issued for students to ride another route or get dropped off at another stop.
All of these instructions to help to keep our students safe and to help the buses to run efficiently.

Girl Scouts Registration

Registration is September 30

NEW THIS YEAR: NOSD Chromebook Policy and Chromebook Insurance (optional) includes OES students

New this year: All OES students are included in the NOSD Chromebook Policy. Students in grades 3-5 (and extending to grade 2 during the school year) will use 1:1 Chromebooks throughout the day. Students in EC- Grade 1 have access to district technology throughout the day. There is an OES-Chromebook Terms and Agreement Document to be filled out & submitted. This agreement is for students' use of district technology while in school and also in case of school closure when students might utilize district technology at home. The optional Chromebook insurance ($20)covers all accidental damage that may occur while the device is in the students' possession in school or in the event that a student needs to utilize a district-issued Chromebook during a quarantine period or if there is a school closure and students continue learning remotely. The ChromebookTerms & Agreement Document (was part of the online registration process) can be found here https://docs.google.com/document/d/11nAtQC67P7lSi3qQGW3ogGxU8O6x36FSjrpmUTJ0o2c/edit?usp=sharing. The online registration process is closed and you need to contact the secretary if you haven't already registered. The optional Chromebook insurance can be paid using your E-funds account through the end of October.
Authorization for Prescription Medication

If your child(ren) will be taking prescription medication at school you will need to fill this form out and bring with the prescription medication (in original bottle) to the district nurse.
