Parent Perception Survey

We are asking all parents to complete a perception survey about Oakview South Elementary School.  We give this survey each year so we can use parent input in our school improvement planning for the upcoming school year.  Please take a moment to complete the survey at this link.  If you do not have internet access, we will have computers available during conferences to complete the survey.  This survey will remain open until January 24, 2017. We appreciate your input!


Recess in the winter can be a lot of fun, especially when students are dressed appropriately! Please make sure your child has a warm coat, snow pants, boots, mittens or gloves. We do have a limited supply of hats and gloves, but we do not provide snow pants or boots. There are resources available if you need assistance purchasing winter gear. Please contact the Oakview office at 227-4502 to learn more.

Speaking of recess, we adhere to the following district-wide guidelines:

* If the temperature or wind chill (temperature/wind chill = “feels like”) is 0 degrees or below, students will be inside for recess.

*Students may only be excused from outdoor recess with a signed doctor’s note. If your child is well enough to come to school, he/she is well enough to go to recess.
