Upcoming Parent/Guardian Internet Safety & Digital Lessons
Oak Harbor Public Schools in collaboration with The White Hatter will host three parent-education sessions for Oak Harbor Public Schools families. These programs will be virtual, LIVE events and will offer Q & A at the end of each program.

Suicide Prevention Month
September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, which helps promote resources and awareness about suicide prevention. Everyone in our community can play a role in preventing suicide. A simple phone call, message, or hug can go a long way towards helping someone realize suicide is not the answer. To reach the new National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for mental health crises, call or text 9-8-8 or chat 988lifeline.org. The Lifeline helps thousands of people overcome crisis situations every day by providing 24/7, free and confidential support to people in a suicidal crisis or emotional distress.

Thank you to our community partners, staff, coaches, student volunteers, and families who helped make our summer sport and community campus a success.

Peachjar Is Coming
In keeping with our district’s mission for sustainability, OHPS will transition the way we distribute flyers in the district. Starting in October we will be using “Peachjar” for paperless, digital flyers. This platform can be used for PTA events, booster club events, and events happening around our community. Parents will receive a weekly email containing all of the flyers for things related to your child’s age group and school.
Although we will not begin Peachjar for another couple of weeks, you can read more about this new e-flyer system on our webpage.
