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 7:25 a.m.  Students who wish to eat breakfast, should be dropped off no later than 7:15 so they can get to class on time after eating.

Letters will be mailed to parents by the end of the first week in August regarding class assignments and school supplies. An orientation will be held on Thursday, August 11, from 3:00-4:30 p.m. for first grade and pre-kindergarten parents.  Kindergarten orientation will be held on Friday, August 12, from 8:00-9:30 a.m.

Parents are invited to drop in during this time to meet their child’s teacher, join the PTA, order an Oakland t-shirt and sign up for parent pick-up cards. We will also have booths set up with information regarding daycares.

The first day of school for kindergarten and first grade students is Monday, August 15.  Parents are asked to pin a small piece of paper on your child during the first two weeks of school with the child’s name, telephone number, and bus numbers.  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.  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.

Pre-kindergarten classes will begin on Wednesday, August 17.   Pre-kindergarten teachers will continue to screen students for the pre-kindergarten program on August 15 and 16.

Please check the school’s website (ops.sumterschools.net) for the supply lists and other pertinent information. We are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding school year as we continue to build the future one child at a time.
