The school day begins daily at 7:30 a.m. and ends at 2:15 p.m.  Students reporting later than 7:30 a.m. will be marked tardy.  Breakfast is served daily from 6:50 until 7:20 a.m.  Note: Students who wish to eat breakfast should be dropped off no later than 7:10 a.m. in order to have time to eat before going to class.

Class rosters will be posted the morning of August 19, the day of our back to school drop-in. Copies of the school supply wish list can be found on the school’s website or Facebook Page.  We have also placed copies at Wal-Mart.  The back to school drop-in will be held Monday,  August 19, from 8:00 a.m. through 12:00 p.m. Feel free to come by the school during this time to meet your child’s teacher, see the classroom, join the Oakland Primary PTA, purchase an Oakland t-shirt, and sign up for parent pick-up cards. We will also have booths set up with information regarding bus transportation and day care for before and after school care if needed.

The first day of school for kindergarten and first grade students is Tuesday, August 20.  Parents are asked to pin a small piece of paper on their child during the first two weeks of school with the child’s name, telephone number, and bus numbers if applicable.  If the child will be picked up daily, please indicate parent pick-up or the name of the daycare that will pick the child up.  Information regarding pre-kindergarten will be discussed at orientation.

On the first day of school, the students will receive a packet of information to share with parents.  Please complete all requested forms and return them to the school the following day.

Please check the school’s website (ops.sumterschools.net) or the Oakland Primary School Facebook page for the supply wish lists and other pertinent information. We look forward to an exciting and rewarding 2019-2020 school year as we continue to educate the whole child!
