Principal’s Otter Splash 1/22/2021

Hello, Oak Grove family! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. We are so excited about the start of Quarter 3. On Monday, January 25, we will welcome back our students. We have missed you so much!


As I’m sure you know, the Wake County Board of Education voted on Thursday, January 14, for all K-12 students to remain in remote instruction until mid-February. Your child’s teacher is looking forward to welcoming back our students virtually on Monday. Please make sure they are ready to go at 9:15. Our teachers held Google Meets on Friday, January 22, to ensure a smooth start to Quarter 3. We also enjoyed the opportunity to see the smiling faces that we love so much!


On Friday, January 29, teachers will distribute Quarter 2 report cards. Please be on the lookout for these to come via email after the end of the school day on Friday.


Quarter 3 Item Distribution:

We will have 2 dates for Item Distribution for Quarter 3: January 26 (Track 1 and 2) and January 27 (Track 3 and 4). Please see this Second Semester Material Information Document for specifics about what is included with this distribution. Additionally, if you ordered your child’s picture, it will be included in the item distribution packet. Items will be arranged by teacher and located at the front of the school. Please make sure you wear a mask at all times while on campus.


Make-up Picture Days:

If you were unable to have your child’s picture taken during our first opportunity, teachers will be sending a Sign-up Genius for you to sign up for one of the upcoming dates, January 27 and 28. January 27 will be for Tracks 1 and 2. January 28 will be for Tracks 3 and 4. Also, if you are not happy with the original picture, you can have a retake on one of these dates.


As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Ms. Rhodes or me with any questions you may have. We are happy to help.


All my best,


Stephanie Bias, Principal
