As we were typing this message, we heard the fantastic news than an agreement has been reached between OUSD and OEA (read about it here!).
Our Hospitality Chairs, Noelle and Jana, have been thinking of the best way to welcome back our teachers (no exact date has been officially announced, although we are hoping for Monday!). They want to SURPRISE the teachers on the first day back to school. There will be a staff meeting first thing in the morning, and the hope is that, when the teachers walk out of their staff meeting on their way back to the classrooms, the halls will be lined with parents and students cheering them on. Noelle and Jana are in communication with Mr. Daubenspeck on the timing and details (we're assuming it will be before the TK/K bell rings at 8:20), and we will share that information when we have it.
Plan to arrive at the school early to celebrate our teachers returning. As usual, all parking rules apply... please do not park in the loading zone outside of the school!! We will still have parents needing to "quick drop" - thank you!
Cheers and WOO HOO!!!
