Online Resources Available

Many times families ask what additional practice is available for students at home. All students have access to Moby Max for ELA/Math practice. In 1st-5th, students can practice math facts fluency with Reflex Math. Also, students in 4th and 5th can access Khan Academy. Your child should have their username and password for these programs. If not, your child's teacher can provide them.

No School Monday, January 18th, in Honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dress Code Reminders

Please review the dress code below. When the weather is very cold, students may wear a heavy coat that is outside the dress code. Also, girls may wear leggings with skorts.

Your student’s uniform bottoms can be purchased at any local store. Navy, black or khaki shorts, skorts, pants or capris are all acceptable. Sneakers are required for safety reasons. Students are not to wear any form of slip-on shoe since they have recess daily and PE twice a week. Absolutely no shoes with wheels are allowed.

Boots are not approved. In addition, a plain colored (black, navy, or gold) sweater, jacket, or sweatshirt is permitted. OES logo sweatshirts can also be purchased through our vendors.

Please note: sweat pants are not permitted.
