The Oxford Update

Oxford Elementary School

Welcome October!

It is hard to believe that we are already into the second week of October. September was a blur of activity as we welcomed back our students and staff. Many of our students had not been learning in person since March of 2020. Students were so happy to see their friends and their teachers but the transition has not been without its challenges. Students are working to learn routines and procedures that they have not practiced in well over a year and teachers are finding ways to work in full classrooms and still maintain all COVID guidelines. Everyone is doing a great job and it is finally feeling like we have all settled into a routine.

Thank you to the families who have had to work around bussing issues, long parent pick-up lines, as well as, COVID quarantines and work commitments. We appreciate your patience, support, and positive attitude through it all. We really are lucky to work in the community that we do and we hope you know that we appreciate each and every one of you.

October is a busy month with picture day and parent-teacher conferences, as well as, state NWEA testing and STAR testing. Our Pre-K to 3rd-grade students will be learning about fire safety from the men and women of the Oxford Fire Department, as our 4th and 5th graders continue to take advantage of learning at Roberts Farm. As you can see, we have a lot going on at OES this month.

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions or concerns. We are ready and willing to help you in whatever way we can. Here's to a great month ahead!
