Holiday Gift Project

Oasis Elementary will be collecting gifts this season for some of our less fortunate students. By donating to our Holiday Gift Project you truly have the opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of children in our school. Your involvement sends a message of care and support to children in need. We are collecting gifts now through December 18th. We have cards on our holiday tree in the main office, please take a card with you and return it with your gift. Alternatively, you can send gifts to Stefanii Foster, School Counselor, without taking a card from the tree, and your gift will be matched with a child.

Currently we have need for gifts for:

Boys: 5, 7, 8, and 9 years old

Girls: 11, 12, and 16 years old

For more information please contact Stefanii Foster, School Counselor, at

Reminder about Car Line

Please remember in the morning that cars can use both lanes on the side of the building and will merge into an every other traffic flow when vehicles get to the front of the building. Please review the map for clarification.

Also, please remember that in the afternoon, the OHS entrance is not double lanes (like it is in the morning). It is only one lane in in the afternoons. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

Updated OES Gate TImes

Reminder, the OES gate is no longer a point of entry. Vehicles will be able to enter through the OHS gate.

Please note the updated times that the OES automatic gate will be open.
