Need to Know News Shared with OES Parents

Single-Gender “Opt-In” Forms (Parents of 2nd & 3rd grade students only) – Your child has the option of participating in our school’s single-gender program next school year. Participation in the program requires parents to opt-in. We ask that all 2nd and 3rd grade students return this form. All forms are due by Friday, April 29th.

2016 Annual Report Card Survey (Parents of 4th grade students only) – The 2016 Annual State Department of Education Report Card Surveys went home the week before Spring Break. This is a “last call” for forms. Please return this this week. These surveys will provide the administration and our School Improvement Council (SIC) the feedback needed to make future decisions regarding our students’ experience at Oakland.


Due to the rezoning of Hendrix, BSE & the new elementary school, new bus routes are being planned for the 2016-2017 school year. In order to help plan for the new bus routes, the office of transportation is asking for parents to complete a transportation form that will be sent home tomorrow with students. Please encourage students to return the forms by this Friday, April 15th. The following blurb was sent in this week's call out to all OES parents...

2016-2017 Transportation Information – To assist us in planning for student transportation needs next year, forms will be coming home tomorrow that, when returned, will specify to us how your child will be transported to and from school in 2016-17. Whether your child will be a bus or car rider, please fill out the Transportation Information form and return it to us by this Friday, April 15th. If you have any questions after you’ve received the form, please do not hesitate to call the front office.
