Picking Up Items

We recognize that with the sudden closure of our buildings that your child may have left some essential items at school including Chromebooks, chargers, or musical instruments. We will be open on Monday, March 16 between 8:00-3:30 for parents to briefly come by and pick up those items.


Nurse Greenberger will be in her office during this time so parents can pick up any needed medication.

Food Service/Delivery

  • All Families

    • As a priority, the District will be providing meals for all community members age 18 & under. Food will be available for curbside pickup (drive-up or walk-up) at Oak Terrace school at 10:00 AM-11:00 AM:

      • March 16-19

      • March 30-April 3

      • April 6-April 10

    • Child(ren) will need to be present for pickup, but there are no eligibility requirements other than age.

    • Those who pick up a meal will receive a cold breakfast and a cold lunch, both of which will meet the USDA and National School Lunch Program guidelines.

    Report Cards

    Report cards will be sent home via mail on Thursday, March 19. Please be on the lookout!

    Parent Teacher Conferences

    Our Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held via phone to support social distancing. The teacher that is hosting your conference will call you directly at the contact number that is listed as the first contact in our system. If you would like to be called at a different number, please email this request to your child’s teacher. If your conference will include parties at two different locations, please make plans to coordinate a conference call that is inclusive of all parties.

    Teaching & Learning Update

    • The continuation of learning, including an online self-paced collection of courses for students in grades 1-8, will be available possibly late next week (March 19th). Information will be sent out when it’s available.

    • We will extend an option for K-2 parents regarding iPads, and specific plans for sending home devices, in a separate communication next week.

    • Planning with teachers and administrators for teacher/student interaction during this prolonged break is underway.

    • We anticipate offering teacher/student “classroom” time via web-based solutions for distance learning following spring break.
