Dear White Oak Families, 


Our newsletter has important information each week for the remainder of the school year. Thank you for taking the time to read it!


Quick Notes/Reminders:

  • EOG testing is this week for 3rd, 4th & 5th grade students. PLEASE plan accordingly so your child arrives at school by 9:15. Early check-outs will NOT be allowed before 1:00pm to ensure students have ample time to complete the test.    
  • All library books were due on Friday. If you child has a library book still out, please return it to the media center ASAP. 



Carpool Reminders


As we approach the end of the school year, be mindful of our procedures for a safe carpool drop-off & pickup. All families are expected to use the full carpool lane instead of driving around the cones at the traffic circle. It becomes a safety issue when parents have to look out for cars trying to cut in front and go around the cones. We appreciate your patience!


Please visit our website for more information about how to drop-off & pick up your child at White Oak. 



Student Devices


**ALL 1st-4th grade students will take home chromebooks and chargers for the summer. Students should only return the device if they are leaving WCPSS for a private school or a school outside of WCPSS.  


5th Grade Tech Turn-In:

WCPSS has requested all 5th grade student devices and chargers be turned in, checked-in, and inventoried by the last week of school. Students are getting new computers and new cases when entering 6th grade.

  •  ALL 5th grade students left their devices AND chargers at school on Friday, May 26. They will remain at school for the remainder of the school year.



Medication Pick-Up


If your child has medication at school, please make sure you stop by the main office to pick it up by the last day - Friday, June 9. Medication cannot be sent home with students. Families will also receive a reminder letter.
