August 6th Newsletter

August 6, 2018

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have had a great opening of school.  The purpose of this letter is to give you some information and reminders.                               

  1. Curriculum Night is August 23 at 6:30 for Kindergarden-5th grade students.  There will be a brief PTO meeting and Title I Orientation. You will have the opportunity to visit the teachers in the grade level where your children are enrolled and find out about the expectations and requirements for your child this year.  
  2. Do you want to help the school?  Don’t forget to save your “BOX TOPS.”  Box tops can be found on hundreds of items in grocery stores.  More information about Box Tops will be coming soon.
  3. Please visit our school website often.  It contains links to my big campus, e-books, a school calendar, and various other information.  Our address is www.newtoncountyschools.org/oakhill.
  4. Just a reminder  - for safety reasons, student check-outs after 1:30 p.m. are not permitted.  To check out a student, the person must report to the office, have ID, and be listed on the child’s information card as having permission to check out the child.
  5. As a part of its ongoing safety improvement plan, the school system has installed a new video intercom system at the main entrance to Oak Hill Elementary School. Beginning Monday, August 6, 2018, all visitors must press the call button on the video intercom to notify front office staff in order to gain admittance to the building.  Signs will be posted to help everyone learn to use the system. The video intercom system is located by the left door, when facing the school.
