Reminder about Car Line

Please remember in the morning that cars can use both lanes on the side of the building and will merge into an every other traffic flow when vehicles get to the front of the building. Please review the map for clarification.

Also, please remember that in the afternoon, the OHS entrance is not double lanes (like it is in the morning). It is only one lane in in the afternoons. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding.

Helping Our Own Through Service (H.O.O.T.S.)

K-Kids and our guidance department are working jointly together collecting nonperishable items that would be desired at any Thanksgiving meal such as cans of vegetables, boxes of mashed potatoes, boxes of stuffing, cans of cranberry sauce, etc. We are also looking for donations of gift cards to Publix. Donations will first go to families in our school who may need assistance at this time of year. We would like to make baskets for those families. Any remaining donations will go to the Cape Coral Caring Center. Please have all donations sent in by Wednesday, November 14. Thanks for your help!!!! Don't forget that the class with the most donations will receive a pizza celebration and the class with the second most donations will receive a popsicle celebration!!!

If you or any families at Oasis who you may know could benefit from this Thanksgiving collection, please send an e-mail to our guidance counselor at or Mr. Zedd at Everything will be kept confidential. We just want to be able to help our own this Thanksgiving!!!! You can also fill out this letter in the Friday Flyers and return to your child's homeroom teacher by November 14.
