Illness Symptoms



Please review the City of Cape Coral Charter Schools Authority COVID Guidelines as well as the most current Illness Policy. Please refer to this policy if your child is experiencing symptoms. If your child is absent please email OES.Attendance@oasishs.org and your child's teacher.


If your child is experiencing symptoms associated with COVID, please keep them home. For more information, please refer to the Oasis Guidelines, which includes the latest illness policy.


If a student is in need of a mask, he or she may reach out to a staff member in the car line or on bus duty to acquire one.

Transportation

Car Line Procedures

Students will NOT be released to cars without a current, school issued car tag. Parents without a car tag will be directed to park and report to the office and present a driver's license to have their child released to them.



AM DROP OFF: All car drop off is in the back. No cars may drop off in the front, near the office, as that is where our buses unload.


AM DROP OFF PROCEDURE: Vehicles should not line up until 7:50 am. Vehicles will enter at the OHS entrance. There are two lanes of traffic. (The third lane on the right is for staff, who need to drive to their parking lot). Also, as vehicles approach the drop off location, please have your child ready to depart, (shoes on , bookbag packed up, ready to unbuckle and depart). Parents should stay in their vehicle and have their car in PARK. If you are in the second lane and a staff member has not come to assist, please hold your arm out your driver's side window to alert staff that your child is still in the vehicle. For safety reasons, it is essential that students wait in their vehicles for staff to open their car door. All vehicles will remain stopped until all students have exited to the sidewalk. A staff member will signal when it is time for the lines of traffic to proceed.


PM PICK UP: K-1 and their siblings will be picked up in the front. Students in grades 2-5 will be dismissed in the back, (same as the AM Drop Off location).


PM PICK UP PROCEDURE: Cars should not line up for dismissal until after 3:00 pm. Vehicles will be directed in by our Security person at the OHS entrance to the campus and wait in line until dismissal starts at 3:30. A staff member will read the car tags as cars approach and have the cars move forward toward the pick up location. Parents should wait in their vehicle. Staff will be directing children. While students are loading, all cars should be in PARK.

Extra Car Tag

It is our school policy for all vehicles to have a current car tag, in order to pick up students. Every student was given one car tag at Open House. If your family will need a second car tag, please complete this survey. In order to submit the survey, you will need your child's 2021-2022 teacher assignment.

Walkers

If your primary residence in FOCUS is listed as 1.5 miles or less, and you would like your child to be dismissed with walkers, please complete this Walker Request. Students who do not live within 1.5 miles from school will not be able to dismiss as walkers.

New Sign In/Sign Out Policy

This year, parents of students who arrive late or are leaving early must sign their child in/out with the office. Our office staff will greet you at the door.

Dress Code

Please check our Dress Code carefully before purchasing shoes and clothing for school. Students will not be permitted to wear clothing that is not within our dress code. All uniforms should have our new logos on them.


Please note: Slip on shoes are not permitted. This includes VANS style shoes.

Communication

Systemwide and Schoolwide Communication

Once again this year, we will use Parent Square as our main form of communication. We use Parent Square for weekly information, upcoming events, changes in dismissal, weather issues, COVID notices and other pertinent information. It is vital to to be reachable through this system. It is available through email or an app.


Families who attended OES last year, will already be registered. Students who are new to OES and are not already registered in Parent Square, will receive an email invitation asking to activate the account. This email will be sent to the email you used to register, (and the email that is in FOCUS). You may need to check your junk or spam email, as it sometimes goes there.


See below for a sample of what the email will look like.
