The following letter came home yesterday regarding Kindergarten Round-Up for the 2019-2020 school year. Please take time to read the letter and see the changes that will take place.
Tomorrow, February 27th, is an early release day for teacher training. Primary students will release at 11:30 a.m. Buses will run their usual routes at this time.
***We are asking that parents not eat lunch at school with their child due to a different and shortened lunch schedule.***
PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT OF REFERRAL PERIOD
February 11, 2019
White Oak Primary and Intermediate schools are now accepting referrals for 1st through 5th grade students who may need Gifted/Talented Services for next school year. The program is designed for students who exhibit intellectual and creative thinking abilities at an extraordinary level not normally served in the regular classroom. Services are provided only upon identification of education needs of the student. Anyone wishing to refer a student attending White Oak ISD may use the referral form attached to the blog post, or may go by the Primary office or Intermediate office and request a copy of the referral form. Those unable to go by the school or to access and print out the document should call Ashley McClanahan at 903-291-2182 to request a form to be sent to them or that a form be sent home in the student’s planner. This form must be returned to the school by Friday, March 1st, 2019.
