ORE Weekly News

  • Thursday, May 28 & Friday, May 29
    Return Devices, Textbooks, Library Books, and Instructional Materials. Pick up medications from your school nurse. Collection of devices, books, packets, and all other school materials will take place on the dates/times below:

    Thursday, May 28 from 8am-6pm in the Oak Ridge Elementary bus parking lot 

    Friday, May 29 from 8am-12pm in the Oak Ridge Elementary bus parking lot

    It is very important that we receive all school materials back during one of these two days.  Our iPad lease is up this summer and we need to refresh devices, therefore we cannot have students keep electronic devices into the summer. 

    Yearbooks will be distributed during the collection of devices. Extra yearbooks are available for purchase (cost is $14).  Must have exact cash or check only (checks made payable to ORE).
