Sprouty Store Wish List

Our first Sprouty Store was a huge success! A great big thank you to Leslie and Angela Donnelly for volunteering to run the Sprouty Store. The students were so excited to spend their Sproutys!


We are looking to restock the Store for next month and would greatly appreciate items donated. Here is the link to our Amazon Wish List. We are adding items throughout the year and will accept donations any time!


Thank you for supporting our PBIS efforts here at Hooker Oak!

Symptom Guide

Please review the Student Symptom Guide and be vigilant about completing a Daily Wellness Check for your child. DO NOT send your child to school if he/she exhibits ANY of the symptoms. If our staff becomes aware of any of these symptoms, we will call and ask that your child be picked up immediately.


Thank you for helping us keep our school open and our school community safe!

Parent Volunteer Vaccination Requirement

As you know, Hooker Oak thrives because of our amazing parent volunteers. We want to make sure that everyone has time to prepare for the new requirement that will go into effect on October 15th. All parent volunteers will be required to show proof of vaccination from COVID-19. If you have any questions about this requirement, please feel free to reach out to the school office.
