Message from the Principal 02.05.2020

We are looking for donations of loose, clean Legos (not sets) to use during indoor recess. Please contact the office if you can help. Thank you!

The Office of the Superintendent is announcing registration requirements for children entering kindergarten on August 25, 2020. Forms for registration, physical examination, and health forms are available at any one of the three elementary schools during the school day (8:45-3:00, M-F). Parents are requested to pick up these forms the week of February 10, 2020, and return them to the school no later than March 9, 2020. See the attached flyer for more information.

Help spread the word: Our second Story Hour will be held at Oakdale School Friday, February 14th, 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. This would be the perfect time to pick up your kindergarten registration paperwork.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner. Many classes will celebrate by handing out Valentine's Day cards to their classmates. If your child will be participating, please send in cards without candy attached. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with this.
