12 Days of Giving at Oakview

This year we are accepting donations for the Beacon of Hope, a charity located in St. Johns that serves our community families. Students will have the opportunity to bring up to 12 different items as we count down the "12 Days of Giving." You can find details and the list of items here.

PTO Holiday Store

Our annual PTO Holiday Store is Thursday, December 17. Students will have the opportunity to shop for gifts for friends and family. Most items are $1 or less. Gift wrapping will be available. We still need volunteers! If you would like to help please contact the office. Thank you!


 If your child is well enough to come to school, it is generally assumed that the child is well enough to go outside for recess.  Students staying inside for health reasons must have a note from a doctor.

Reminders about medications at school

All medications must be in the original container and must be accompanied by directions from a doctor.  This policy applies to all medications, including over the counter items such as ibuprofen, aspirin and cough drops.  The directions must include the student’s name, name of the medication, dosage, time to administer, how to administer, the duration of the medication, the reason for it, and any side effects.  Doctors may fax them to the school, but we cannot take them over the phone.

Volunteering at Oakview

Would you like to help our in your child's classroom? Do you have plans to go on a field trip? Volunteers attending field trips are required to complete a background check form, which has recently been updated. We also must have a copy of your current driver's license to submit with that form. You can find the form here .
