Frequently Asked Questions...

Is this front office open to visitor?

Although we will have a staff member on campus to answer phones and receive packages, the front office will not be open to visitors.

Will there be a day to turn in Chromebooks and pick up personal belongings, yearbooks and class pictures?

On June 4th and June 5th, Oasis Elementary will have a drive through process for collecting our school issued materials, (Chromebooks, library books, etc.) and distributing students' personal items, (pencil boxes, ear buds, and yearbooks and class photos for those who purchased them) We will be organizing Drive Up times by grade level and teacher. There will also be an evening time available on June 4th. Families with multiple OES students will have the choice to combine their returns and pick ups during one Drive Up time. Look for a detailed schedule in the next few weeks.

What changes are being made to school uniforms for the 2020-2021 school year?

We are changing our school colors for the next school year. In addition to our new logo, (see above) our new colors will be Navy, Gold and Sapphire Blue. We are also adding a new vendor, who will be launching an online store. Our goal is to make shirts available for sale at Open House.

No. Students will be able to wear this year's uniforms for the 2020-2021 school year.

Accessing the Public LIbrary

Lee County Library is opening for pick up! You can put books on hold and then go to some locations and they will bring them out. The location off Mohawk is one of the locations that is opening in Cape Coral right now. See the link below for more information and directions on how to use this pick up process. Also, Mrs. Gamboa has more information in her Google Classroom.


The following link is to the children's page of the Lee County Library System website, which includes information about how to get a temporary library card, Stay at Home Storytime, AR links, and additional links to learning resources and learning materials:

As a reminder, our Specials classes are for enrichment. Although these classes pack a lot of fun learning activities, if the extra workload adds to your family stress, please know that there is no set requirement to participate in these lessons.

Fourth Quarter Interims- Music and Art Grades

Interims that were posted in the FOCUS dashboard did not include Art and Music grades. We are working to correct that issue. This should be corrected by the end of the week.

Taking Care of Your Family's Emotional Well Being

This week, we are highlighting some resources from Mind Up. They have put together some resources for our students, while they are at home.

Fourth Quarter Interims

Interims are available for parents who have already set up and have an established FOCUS account to view their student information, they just have to log in to the FOCUS account and the interim should be viewable on the dashboard.

If parents have NOT already set up an established FOCUS account to view their student information, they will have to get their parent account verified. The verification process may take up to a few weeks. In order to set up a parent account, parents will need the Student ID number, (NOT the Social Security Number). If you do not know your child's Student ID, please reach out to your child's teacher. Teachers will only be sending student ID's to the email account that they have been using with the parent all year.

See the attachment below for details on the Parent FOCUS account verification process.

Have you downloaded the Focus Community App yet?

The Focus Community App provides parents, students, teachers, and administrators a streamlined way to access the information they want, when and where they want it.

The School District of Lee County's Focus Community App is available for download on both the Google Play and Apple App stores. Download it today!

Bus Transportation Application for 2020-2021 School Year

Parents must complete a separate form for each child in their family that is requesting transportation. Deadline is end of business day (5:00 pm) on June 15, 2020 for guaranteed transportation for the first day of school. If you miss the deadline, transportation cannot be guaranteed for the first two weeks of school.


Student Monitoring with Google Accounts/Chromebooks

Please remind your student that the use of their Google account (@oasishs.org) and school issued Chromebooks are monitored for inappropriate use. Because we continue to get alerts, even while students are home, we will be contacting parents to inform them of the inappropriate search or site that a student attempted to reach.
