HAVE LUNCH WITH YOUR CHILD All Elementary Schools and the Food Services
Department invites parents of school-age children to have lunch with their child any
school day. Please let the school office know in advance so we can make sure a lunch
gets ordered for you. You may bring money with you to pay for the meal or the adult
lunch can be charged to your students Food Service Account.

The food service department is seeking individuals to work for our department serving
breakfast and / or lunch. The majority of these positions available are 1.5 - 2 hours in
length and are during the breakfast and lunch service time, which varies with the school.
Opportunities for longer shifts and additional hours may also be available. Please see
the WECAN at website for employment opportunities
along with applying for positions within the Food Service Department.


All Weather Clothing Reminder

We are having an increasing number of students asking the office if they can borrow a sweatshirt or coat to wear out to recess.  Please make sure that your child has a coat or sweatshirt everyday at school.  All students will be outside for recess unless it is raining.

Recess Milk - Negative Food Service Balance

Reminder to families-We have had some families question why their child's balance is negative.  Lunch and Breakfast are free to all students.  This means an entire meal, not just a milk.  If your family qualifies for the free/reduced meals program then your child can also have a free recess milk.  If you do not qualify recess milk is 40¢ a day.  When you log into your parent portal the home page shows your child's Food Service Balance.  Please make sure you are putting money in this account so your child can have recess milk.  

IMPORTANT-This balance will follow your child from school to school so any positive (or negative) balances will move on to middle and high school.  If you have questions or concerns please call the office.  

Parking Drop Off and Pick Up

A reminder to families to always check for parking signs when dropping off and picking up your child from school.  The area by the playground on Linwood Av is for bus parking only.  Cars should not be using that area as a drop off in the morning.  We have placed orange cones in the street on Viola Av where there is NO Parking/No Stopping/No Standing.  This means NO cars should ever be in these areas between 7:00am and 3:00pm.  Please, please, please make sure you are not letting your children off in the "coned" area even if the cones are not there, we need families to know that they can not use that area.  We also wanted to remind families that the drop off time at Oaklawn is 7:25am.  We do not have a supervisor present until that time for students to turn to if any issues arise.  Also remember that if you want to use the parking lot to drop your child off, you MUST park in a space.  The driving lane must remain clear so other cars can come and go.  Please utilize the drop off zone on Viola St. next to the school building.
