OGMS Weekly Update
Hello Ockley Green Families & Partners -
This continues to be a difficult time and I am saddened for the tremendous impact the school closure is having on the well-being of our students & staff. I continue to prepare for their re-entry and look forward to welcoming back our students & staff soon.
It has been confirmed that the earliest students would be back is Monday, November 27th since originally Conferences were scheduled for next week. Please reference the email notice from PPS regarding the postponement of Conferences. Our staff is excited to support Student-Led Conferences and the additional time will allow them to provide opportunities for our students to reflect on & prepare for sharing their academic growth with their families.
You can access resources & information, including supplemental learning activities by grade-level, student enrichment activities in the community and mental health services, through the Buttons included in the Strike Resources section of this newsletter.

New Air Purifiers
During the October OG Supporters meeting, it came to light that Ockley Green would not be receiving a second air purifier for each classroom, which we were originally slated to receive over the summer. Given the history of environmental concerns at Ockley, both radon levels and, more recently, the air quality concerns that have closed our Portables twice in the past year, I advocated with Facilities to be reconsidered for receiving additional air purifiers. I am happy to report that each classroom now has 2 air purifiers. Thank you OG Supporters for your ongoing partnership and feedback on school-related needs.
