There will be NO outside activities (i.e. no practices, no Boys and Girls Club, etc.).

The last two days, there have been numerous reports of sick students. Some students have experienced symptoms such as high fever, cough, and upset stomach. We have some students with confirmed flu and strep. The school is taking extra precautions with:
- cleaning and disinfecting
- increased focus on hand washing and sanitizing
- frequent reminders of how to cough (into your elbow) to reduce the risk of spreading germs
- frequent reminders to not share drinks, etc.
Please help us by keeping sick students home until they are free of fever for 24 hours. We appreciate your support.
FYI: There is a change in the cafeteria menu. Next Wednesday, December 20th, the cafeteria will be serving PIZZA, not hamburgers.
Our SECOND GRADE students will have their Seussical performances next Thursday, December 14th. They will perform for the PreK, Kindergarten, and First Grade students that morning and for parents, grandparents, etc. that evening at 6:30 p.m. Second grade will be dressing up that day as kids from Whoville. Mrs. Ritchey has done a fantastic job with our second grade students. We are all very eager to watch the performance!
White Oak Primary is “Walking in a Winter Wonderland.” Drop by and see our grade level decorated Christmas trees. You will see favorite Christmas stories and characters like “Pete the Cat,” “Olive the Other Reindeer,” “The Polar Express,” and “Rudolf.”
Beginning Monday morning, December 4, 2017, Roughneck Drive will be reduced to one lane in front of the football stadium. Two lane operation will resume at the end of the Home Side Bleachers. Temporary fencing will be in place to designate the construction site. This is necessary to allow for the construction zone at the new Field House Site. This traffic pattern will remain in place until September of 2018.
We have included an image of the traffic pattern for your benefit. It can also be viewed on the main page of the district’s website, www.woisd.net.
White Oak ISD would like to thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this time of district improvement projects.
