Message from the Principal 12.06.19

Unfortunately, we have had a number of issues with students bringing Pokemon cards to school. The cards have interfered with learning time and teachers, bus drivers, and administration have had to spend a lot of time sorting out problems that have come to our attention. At this time, we have decided that Pokemon cards are no longer allowed in school or on the bus. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

Help spread the word: Story Hour at Oakdale School this Friday, December 6th, at 10:00 a.m., for children entering kindergarten at Oakdale School in the Fall of 2020. Call the school at (860) 859-1800 to RSVP.

Reminder: All Giving Tree gifts should be returned to the school by December 13th. Items can be wrapped or unwrapped with the tag attached. Thank you.
