Hello OCRS Families,

We have a busy week coming up at OCRS, so please make sure to review all of the information below carefully. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's teacher or email Mr. Barrette.

Important Information

Open House, Thursday 9/19, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

All families are invited to join us on Thursday, September 19th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for the Old County Road School Open House. Come and meet your child's teachers, visit our classrooms, and see the great things happening at OCRS!

Students are welcome to come with their family to the Open House, but all students must stay with and be supervised by their family at all times. Also, please be aware that, while the Open House is a terrific opportunity for families to meet their child's teachers, it is not intended to be an in-depth parent/teacher conference or a discussion about specific issues and concerns. Parent/teacher conferences are scheduled to take place on December 5th and are a more appropriate time for comprehensive discussions about individual students. Parents and families should also feel free to reach to individual teachers at any time regarding their child.

5th Grade Instrument Rental Night, Tuesday 9/17, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

5th grade families should have received a few email messages with information about the 5th Grade Band Program and Instrument Rental Night. If you are a 5th grade family renting an instrument, the Instrument Rental Night is being held on Tuesday, 9/17 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the OCRS cafeteria. Please find additional information at https://5il.co/a88d.

Communicable Conditions Resources from Mrs. Forte

Our school nurse teacher, Mrs. Forte, would like to share information about communicable health conditions with all OCRS families. The document at https://5il.co/a88c contains links to a wide variety of important and helpful information for families.  Please take a look!
