Fourth and Fifth grade students will be taking the ELA FSA this week. All student schedules will be different Monday-Thursday to accommodate the grade levels who are testing this week.

If your child is testing, please make sure they get a good night's sleep, healthy breakfast and have a stress free morning. They have been working hard and they are ready.

Increasing Outside Temperatures

As the weather is getting warmer, please continue to encourage your child to stay hydrated all day. Also, students are not permitted to wear their hoodie/sweater, etc. outside.

If you would like to help keep our kids hydrated, please consider donating a case of water to your child's classroom. This will help keep our students hydrated on days they do not bring their water bottles.

Farewell to Kellie Kelly

Kellie Kelly, in the front office, is moving on to a new opportunity. Friday was her last day. We wish her all the best.

Dismissal Changes

Please continue to use oes.dismissalchanges@oasishs.org for dismissal changes. For the next few weeks, if you need to email the front office, please contact Ashley Rall and Doreen Bianchi.
