October is Down Syndrome Awareness month. Below is the order form and the website link if you are interested in purchasing a shirt. Orders are due by October 2nd. The proceeds from this fundraiser will go the Special Ed Dept. Thank you!
If you are sending your student back to school with on-site learning, please begin practicing facemask wearing with your child in the house or a building. Gradually increasing the amount of time the mask is worn will also be helpful.
At OES, students will be given a snack around 9:00 and 11:00. Considering having your child snack at those times before school begins in order to prepare for the schedule.
OES students will be starting school at the normal start time of 8:08. We strongly recommend that you have them start waking up at their school-day wake-up time at least a week prior to school starting.
Parents/guardians will be able to drop students off in the back of the school or front; however, they will not be able to stay with them until it is time to enter the building. Please say your longer good-byes in the car.
Practice keeping an arm’s length away from the next person when walking or sitting. These distances will be extended in the classrooms and hallways.
More than one facemask is important to have for your children. These should be washed consistently as well.
Practicing of consistent and frequent washing of hands and using hand sanitizer will also be important for the students to know.
Students should also be able to wipe the area that they were at independently with cleaning wipes.
