    Hi Forest Oak Families,

    With evening events scheduled in May and June, I want to remind you of our safety policy for all evening events. Our school doors will only be unlocked and/or open if they are monitored by a staff member. The doors will open 30 minutes before the event is scheduled to start. In most cases once the event starts, the doors will be closed and locked. If you happen to arrive late, you can enter through the door where the event is taking place or if you have a family member already here, you can call them and they can come let you in the front door. Thank you for your understanding with helping to keep our school safe during evening events.

    As another reminder, please do not drop students off before 8:45 a.m. There is NO supervision before 8:45a.m. Our front doors open at 8:45 and that is when students can be dropped off to enter the building. All early dismissals need to take place prior to 3:15 p.m. Thank you for adhering to these timeframes.
