⚓ Weekly Update 07/09/22

 

OCE Families,

 

Welcome to the 22-23 School Year! We are thrilled to have you as a part of our OCE Family! 

 

Tracks 1, 2, and 3 had a fantastic start to the school year the past two days and we appreciate all you did to make this a smooth transition. Students have been learning the routines and procedures, while getting to know their new classroom community. I have walked around to meet all of the students and I can tell we have a great group this year!

 

As far as communication goes, I try to email families twice a month. My updates are then posted to the Principal Message section of our OCE Website. 

 

Please see some other important reminders:

  • The emergency grant that made meals free last year has ended. School meals are now available for purchase. Find cost and how to sign up for online payment here: https://www.wcpss.net/Page/14781

    • Students need to know their school Powerschool ID number to buy lunch. Please reach out to your teacher or front office if you do not know your child’s Powerschool ID.

  • Please send your student with a water bottle and snack daily. We want to keep students hydrated and ready to learn.

  • Yellow Bus- We appreciate your patience with the bus delays and changes. We were told the Here Comes the Bus App will be working soon. Until then, live updates are posted here: https://www.wcpss.net/domain/6636
