Principal NeCastro's Monthly News





    Hi Forest Oak Families and Welcome Back! 

    Everyone at Forest Oak is getting ready for the return of students! We will have our Meet the Teacher event on Thursday, August 22 from 4:00-6:00. You will have the opportunity to visit the classroom and meet your child’s teacher at this event. During the event, stop by the PTA table and consider joining. The cost per family is $10, both cash and checks are accepted. PTA members will be here to share the exciting events planned for the school year. 

    Forest Oak continues to qualify for a community program grant that enables all students to receive a free breakfast and lunch. 

    The first day of school is Monday, August 26. Our front doors will open at 8:45 each morning. Please do not drop your child off prior to 8:45 as there is no supervision. Kindergarten students will only attend school for two days during the first week of school. Later this month, kindergarten families will receive a letter explaining which two days your child will attend. If you did not get the kindergarten letter by August 19,  please call the school office. 

    Transportation mailers will be sent home mid-August, so please look for this in the mail. If you do not receive transportation information or have a change in transportation please call the school office at 302-454-3420 by August 23. 

    Enjoy the remainder of summer! We are looking forward to seeing everyone on August 22 anytime between 4:00-6:00pm and again on the first day of school, Monday, August 26 at 8:45am.
