Busy week @ SHS counseling office. Students learned about early college enrollment courses they can take in high school, college admissions counselors are meeting with interested students, & Mr. Jackson provided tips on high school success to 9th graders. Great opportunities!

Just a reminder that the Scholastic Book Fair is being held this Wednesday night, September 20th, in the Maker Space as part of Open House. Your child received a flyer to bring home at the end of last week with all of the details regarding the Book Fair. Any family that is interested will have an opportunity to shop at the Book Fair with their child. https://www.scholastic.com/bf/oldcountyroadschool

A reminder that today all Smithfield schools are being dismissed 2 hours early due to the extreme heat. For OCRS, that means that dismissal today will be at 12:45 PM instead of our normal 2:45 PM. Some additional important details: - Students will have lunch at school as normal at their regular time prior to early dismissal. - There is no YMCA after school program today. Families will need to make alternate plans for your student. Please inform the school if your child is taking a different bus home today or if they are being picked up at 12:45 PM. - If your student normally takes the bus home, their dismissal bus schedule will run 2 hours early this afternoon. Dismissal begins at 12:45 PM. - If your student is picked up this afternoon, please plan to pick them up at 12:45 PM Thank you for your flexibility today and stay cool!

PM preschool and the YMCA After School Programs are cancelled. Your principals will be sending you a message regarding the dismissal time for your schools. Administrators will be in our schools until the end of the day to ensure that all students are able to arrive home safely. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Thank you.

Our 5th grade tour guides did a terrific job welcoming new families and Kindergarten families to OCRS yesterday. Our tour guides made sure to point out important places around the school building, like the water bottle filling stations. Mr. Barrette joined Kindergarten students and families for a practice bus ride! Thank you to our friends at DATTCO for teaching us about bus safety. #OCRSrocks #Back2School
