- Picture Day Details
- eAcademy: In order to eliminate the mixing of cohorts, there is a specific time block set aside for our eAcademy students. We will have these students come between the hours of 12:00-1:00 pm
- Pre-Pay: Here is the link that parents can use to order their pictures and pre-pay online for them: Oakwood Elementary - School Picture Pre-Pay Option. NOTE: This option is the best as it alleviates having more physical contact and lets parents order directly from their homes.
The following Wednesdays ALL STUDENTS will be dismissed at 12:30 pm. Make sure your child(ren) knows what their family plan is...parent pick-up or after school care. Parents please plan accordingly on these days.
Oakwood School Families,
Thank you so much for your effort so far to be an active participant in your child’s education in these unprecedented times. While we know it has been new to everyone, we are working together to make these transitions between models as smooth as possible for families. As your child shifts from the hybrid model to virtual model, we want to support you in understanding what to expect and how to proceed. Your child's teacher will be sending home important information today and tomorrow explaining the virtual model.
Using your child’s Chromebook, you can access your child’s Google Classroom for the “Week at a Glance” document that will let you know what is happening for the week. Teachers will post assignments, video links, and other important information to help your child continue to grow and learn during this uncertain time. Teachers will communicate with families through email, Google Classroom, and Infinite Campus. It will be important to check for communication frequently.
In order to support learning at home, your child’s teacher will be sending home curriculum materials. These materials are to be used along with the learning that will happen with the classroom teacher during a class, small group, or one-on-one meeting time scheduled by the teacher. These materials will also support the times your child is working on independent learning activities. Below you will find a quick reference chart of the basic materials organized by curriculum area. Your child’s teacher will provide additional materials as appropriate.
In these new and changing times, it is very important to keep the lines of communication open. Please reach out to your child’s teacher or me if you need support in accessing the materials for learning or if you need clarification regarding schedules and activities. We want you and your child to feel engaged and supported in this new learning environment. We are here to help and do not want you to miss important learning opportunities.
Wishing you all well. We hope this virtual time ends quickly and we are all back together again soon,
Mrs. Susan L. Martin
