FROM THE OFFICE...
CHILD SICKNESS GUIDELINES
INDOOR RECESS NEEDS
Cleaning out your closets? Donate your gently used board or card games for indoor recess!
CAR LOOP REMINDER
Please make sure the Oak Street driveway entrance is not blocked during car loop. Aftercare employees need to enter the lot at dismissal time and be able to park in the area between the auditorium and cafe.
POLICY ON TOYS/TRADING CARDS IN SCHOOL
Teachers design many important and engaging learning activities for their students. In the interest of maintaining a harmonious, productive and positive learning environment, children are not to bring toys or trading cards (example: Pokemon) to school from home. The only exception is if the teacher has specifically asked the children to do so because it relates to an instructional activity. Handheld video games, iPods, cell phones, and other electronic devices are prohibited in school, on the playground and on the bus.
FRIDAY FOLDER DISTRIBUTION
The Friday Folder distribution method has changed. Your Friday Folder email will have either Mrs. Slack or Mrs. Woodside as the sender and the subject will say FRIDAY FOLDER with the date. If you are not receiving Friday Folders, please reach out to the Main Office.
If you are looking for ways to get more involved at OSS, please consider shadowing/co-chairing any of our committees. In addition, the following positions are open:
'20-'21 Sweetheart Dance Chair
'20-'21 Display Case Chair
Please email email@example.com with any questions.
We are selling car magnets to benefit the 5th grade class of 2020. You can purchase a magnet via backpack. Please place cash or check in an envelope marked 5th GRADE MAGNETS - be sure to include your child’s name and teacher/homeroom with your order (checks payable to OSS PTO).
PRICING INFO: 1 for $6 or 2 for $10. Magnet(s) will come home in your child’s backpack.
OSS EXCUSE PADS
Stop by the main office to purchase an excuse pad designed by Babadoo Designs. Each pad has 50 sheets and allows you to easily communicate with the school. One pad for $6 or two pads for $10.
Traditional clipped Boxtops are being phased out and replaced by a mobile app. Once you download the mobile app to your phone, set up an account and link to Oak Street School, you will be able to scan your grocery receipts and any products with Boxtops will be credited to OSS. No more clipping and counting! During the transition, you may continue to send any non-expired Boxtops in to school with your child and there will still be a prize for the class that collects the most!
