Otter Splash News & Reminders

Principal’s Otter Splash 1/29/2021

Hello, Oak Grove family! I hope everyone is staying warm this week and having a wonderful weekend. We had some excitement with the promise of snow this week. While it didn’t last long, it was beautiful to see.


In case you missed it, on January 7, WCPSS sent out an update to the inclement weather guidelines. Here they are:

Update to Inclement Weather Guidelines
During the 2020-2021 school year, an asynchronous learning day will be used when the weather prevents us from having in-person classes. No make-up day will be required. Schools will take into consideration that winter weather and snow days are a time-honored celebration in our community and assign work accordingly. While there will be requirements for work, families should expect to also have time to celebrate their own traditions. Families will continue to receive an email and text message when the school day is modified due to inclement weather. When possible, the announcement will be made the day before so families can plan.


On Friday, January 29, teachers distributed Quarter 2 report cards. Please reach out to your child’s teacher with any questions.


February 1-5 is National School Counselor Week. Please join me in thanking our amazing counselor, Ms. Michot. Ms. Michot always works tirelessly to attend to the social and emotional needs of our school family. During the pandemic, she has gone above and beyond in ensuring our family is supported.


This week, on Wednesday, February 3, we will have an asynchronous day. Your child’s teacher will be in touch to let you know the expectations for Wednesday.


Quarter 3 Item Distribution:

We have completed the item distribution and only have a few packets still left at school. If you did not pick up a packet, please stop by school this week during our normal office hours of 8:00-4:30. Please make sure you wear a mask at all times while on campus.


Change to Powerschool communication:

There will be an upgrade to our School Messenger system on February 1. If you do not receive my Otter Splash School Messenger on Sunday, February 7, 2021, please contact Alisa Dahlhoff (


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
