A Note from the Principal
It's hard to believe it's October already! This month will be filled with fun and learning as we have our first grade-level performance of the year, celebrate Red Ribbon Week, host parent/teacher conferences, and bring Fall Festival back to Oak Creek. These events provide many opportunities for family engagement, and I look forward to you joining us on campus.
Oak Creek Elementary
Safety of all students and staff remains our number one priority. To assist with this, please remember that the side loop is for busses, daycare vans, and those dropping off students with a visible disabled placard. All others should go through the main car line. The parking spaces in the side lot are designated for staff members. Please utilize the front lot when you need to park and walk students into the building. Also, please be mindful of homeowners in the neighborhoods as we have had many reach out with concerns of parked cars blocking driveways and streets.
Any student who arrives after the 7:35 bell will need to be checked in to the front office by a parent or guardian. When the bell rings, the gate on the side of the building will be closed and a sign will be posted letting you know that you will need to park and check your child in to the office.
As we continue to grow, our parking lots are getting full. The side lot is designated staff parking. Visitors and those who need to park to bring students into the building should use the front lot. Please keep in mind that designated disabled parking spots are only to be used by individuals who have a visible disabled placard or license plate. All others will be asked to move their vehicle.
Students and parents may determine personal attire and grooming standards, provided they comply with the district guidelines. These guidelines will be strictly enforced by all Oak Creek staff members. Students who are not in compliance with the district guidelines will be required to change. The full student dress code can be found here.
- Hairstyles/color should be appropriate
- Accessories depicting animal-like characteristics are not allowed
- Shorts, skirts and dresses should be no shorter than mid-thigh
- Hats and hoods are not allowed to be worn in the building
- Temporary tattoos and body painting is to be covered or removed
Allergy Friendly Lunch Tables
We have students with severe food allergies who need access to an allergy friendly table at lunch. These tables are marked in the cafeteria and in the hallway at large events. Please only use these tables if you are needing access to an allergy friendly seating area.
Oak Creek One Pager
This year we have our Oak Creek one pager. This is a one stop shop for important information that you may need throughout the year such as district safety protocols, background check information, and and free/reduced lunch just to name a few. By clicking here you will be directed to both pages of the one pager.
