CHILD SICKNESS GUIDELINES
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. Ingling 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.
HOLIDAY RECOGNITION BAKING
It's that time of year again to thank everyone at Oak Street School for all they do! On December 9, the holiday recognition cake tradition will continue and we are looking for helpers to receive, package and/or bake cakes. Questions? Contact Heidi Richel or Carol Pietro.

REQUEST FROM MRS. TOLENTINO
Mrs. Tolentino, our wonderful art teacher at Oak Street School, needs clean, empty yogurt cups for an art project. If you have any, please send them to school with your child.

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!
