Coins for Olivia

Starting the week of January 16th, our campus will be participating in a coin drive for Olivia Hale.  Each day students may bring any spare change or donations to their classroom. The money will be collected and stored in the office.  Friday, the funds will be counted and we will announce the amount collected. Students are also encouraged to follow a daily theme as they collect donations!

The daily themes for this week are:

Tuesday, January 16th – “Sock-it to Moebius Syndrome” – wear crazy socks

Wednesday, January 17th – “Thinking About Olivia” – wear hats

Thursday, January 18th – “Hugs to Olivia” – bring a stuffed animal to hug all day

Friday, January 19th – “Wishing Sweet Dreams to Olivia” – Students may wear dress code appropriate pajamas and tennis shoes to school.

Wednesday, January 24th – Moebius Syndrome Awareness Day – “Purple All Over” – WEAR PURPLE!

This campaign or the daily themed activities are not mandatory. If you are not able to donate, please keep this family in your prayers.

Early Release Tuesday and Wednesday

White Oak Primary students will be dismissed at 11:45 on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Because lunchtimes for our students will be adjusted to accommodate the early dismissal times, we are asking that there be NO VISITORS AT LUNCHTIMES. This will assist our cafeteria in getting all of the students fed and out of the cafeteria in time to finish up the daily schedule.

Thank you, parents, for your cooperation!!

High School Traffic Pattern

Beginning Monday, December 18, 2017, there will be a new traffic pattern around the High School to accommodate a construction zone in the north student parking lot (in red). Please take the time to review the map included in the message and make note of the following:
  • There will be no through traffic in front of the high school and parking in that area will be for teachers only. (in yellow)
  • Areas available for student parking are outlined in orange. Those that park across the street from the auditorium will have a crossing guard to ensure safe passage to campuses.
  • All High School student drop-off and pick-up will be in front of the Food Service building and traffic is designated as one way from south to north (in green). **(Traffic coming from the north on White Oak Road are encouraged to drop-off in the parking lot across the street and use the protected cross walk)
This traffic pattern will be in place until the end of August 2018. The district would like to thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience during the process of upgrading our facilities.

Sickness Update

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.
