THANK YOU AGAIN to all students and their parents for helping OES win the food fight competition vs. OMS!! Together both schools collected over 11,000 items for Operation Christmas!!! GCR2 students and parents are simply THE BEST!!!
All of us at OES wish everyone a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!
**Reminder – please be sure to call the office, 437-2171, if your student is absent. If we have not received a call by 10am, we start calling to try and reach a parent to verify the absence. This is a practice that all schools in the GCR-II district follows. Each week we run an attendance report. A student who has missed 3, 5, 8, or 12 absences will receive a letter from this report, whether the absence is verified, excused or unexcused. These letters should only be a cause for concern if your child has numerous absences and/or several unexcused absences. Please be sure if your child visits a doctor that they bring in the doctor’s note. If we call to verify and are unable to leave a message or if no one calls back after leaving a message, the absence is considered unexcused. **
