from Oak Creek Elementary
A Note from the Principal
It's hard to believe that we are just a couple of weeks away from Spring Break and our last quarter of the year.
Our beautiful playgrounds opened last week and the students are so excited.
It is sure to be another busy month as we wrap up our PTA fundraiser, celebrate Read Across America week, kickoff our grade level field trips and see all the amazing talents our students have at Fine Arts Night.
I look forward to seeing you on campus throughout this month's events.
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 who require parent assistance to enter the building. 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.
*Our officer will be issuing citations to those who utilize the disabled spots without a visible placard. This includes drop off and pick-up.*
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.
We love having visitors during lunch. To ensure safety for all, please note that you are only able to have lunch with your child (friends are unfortunately not able to join) and all visitors must be seated at a designated table. Due to limited seating, we ask that you arrive no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your student's scheduled lunch time. Those arriving before this will be asked to wait in the lobby.
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.
A Note From Mrs. Trump
Please use the Signup Genius to select the day(s) you would like to volunteer to be a Hallway Hero. Remember to tell me what times you are available and if there is something specific I need to know when creating your schedule. For example, I am available from 7:15-10:00 and would only like to do safety checks or I am available from 7:15-3:30 and would love to help in any way possible. Please email Danielle.Trump@comalisd.org if you have any questions.
Read Across America Week-February 27-March 3
Join us in celebrating reading by participating in the following dress up days.
Oak Creek Fun Run - Wednesday, March 1
We are excited for our Ocelots to have a blast at our Fun Run. Each class will be participating in obstacles. Some examples of the obstacles are:
- Lava Rocks - Students will hop from rock to rock without touching the ground.
- Inflated Logs - Students will jump or step over our inflatable logs.
- Hurdles - Students will crawl below our inflated hurdles.
- Agility Poles - Students will weave through our PCV plastic agility poles.
- Zig Zags - Students will run through this inflated obstacle placing their feet in each opening with high knees.
- Army Crawl Net - Students will crawl on hands and knees below a net.
- Boulder Field - Students will navigate the track through multiple inflated boulders.
This video will give you a better idea of what to expect on the day of the Fun Run.
Below you will find a digital copy of the opt out flyer that was sent home last Thursday. If you do NOT want your child to participate in the Fun Run, return a copy of this opt out form to your child's homeroom teacher.
Parents are invited to come watch their child participate in the Fun Run. Please note that all visitors will need to sign in at the table outside and get a visitor badge. Fun Run visitors will be asked to remain outside the building. Those who would like to access the building for lunch, etc. will be required to get another badge in the front office.
