⚓Weekly Update 03/18/22


OCE Families,


I wanted to share a few important reminders to pay attention to for the next school year. Although it is Mid- March, we are beginning to plan for the 22-23 school year. 


Track Change Requests:


Track Change Requests for 22-23 are due April 2nd:

Fill out here: 22-23 Track Change Request Form


Important notes about track changes:

  • If you would like to request a track change for the 2022-2023 school year, please provide the information requested below by April 2, 2022. 

  • You will receive an email by late May notifying you if your request was approved or not, so please do not contact us for updates before June 1st.  

  • Virtual Academy students returning to in-person learning are not guaranteed to stay on Track 4 and will be placed on the tracks they were on prior to the pandemic. Families with current Virtual Academy students will need to fill this out if requesting a track change.


Rising Kindergarten Students

  • If you have a child starting kindergarten next year, you need to immediately complete the registration process.  

  • The WCPSS date for honoring sibling tracks and precap status ends on April 1st. 

  • If you have not completed registration for your incoming kindergarten student, we cannot consider your track preference request form - even if you have older children at OCE or another year-round school. This means you are less likely to be assigned your preferred track, and you could end up with children on two different tracks even if you have older children at OCE or another year-round school. 

  • While track assignments will not be announced for some time, we have already begun the process of planning for next year.

  • Your registration is not complete until you receive confirmation from our data manager, Mrs. Bryant. 


Thank you for doing your part to help us plan appropriately for the next school year. OCE is at its best when we all work together!
