Information Posted by Mr. Hopper...

TOWN HALL MEETING - Wednesday, Sept. 26 - 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Oasis Middle School Cafeteria.  All are welcome to attend.  Responses to the latest system survey will be shared.

Beginning tomorrow, from approximately 2:45-4:00 p.m., the Oasis Middle School parking lot gate will be open.
This gate is only for OMS parents picking up/dropping off their child for an after school activity (club, tutoring, intramural, etc.). This should allow you easy access to your child, while avoiding much of the traffic from the OES dismissal process.
 
Each after school activity will provide students with an appropriate vehicle dashboard sign. The paper sign must be displayed in your vehicle for you to gain access to the OMS gate. You will need to have this sign displayed beginning on Monday, Sept. 24.

Wednesday, Sept. 19 - Early Dismissal Day for Students - we dismiss at 11:30 a.m.

Changes for dismissal - effective now...
Our student pick-up area will switch to the rear of OMS - the same driveway where students are dropped off in the morning.
All buses will load in the front of the school.

Also, in the interest of safety, and with direction from the Cape Coral Police Department, all bikers and walkers are being held in the media center until the student pick-up line has finished.

After school opportunity for students...
 
Golf Squad at Oasis Middle School is for both new and continuing students and provides weekly opportunities for your child to learn the technical swing mechanics (i.e. putting, chipping, full swing, etc.) as well as the social skills required to enjoy golf, the clubs, and golf course (i.e. vocabulary, etiquette, rules, history, etc.) all under the instruction of an LPGA or PGA Professional
Golf is a very challenging and fun sport that can lead to college scholarships. So start early and start now...boys and girls! Even if your child already plays, it is great to enjoy weekly, convenient lessons from the pro. (Click Here to read more on how and why your child can benefit from continuing professional, golf practice with Golf Squad at your school.)

We look forward to building the foundation to enjoy golf for a lifetime together!

We now have an automatic gate at the Oasis Elementary entrance/exit to Oasis Blvd. This gate will typically be closed. All entrance to OMS should be done through the Oasis High gate. You may exit through the Oasis Elementary gate. To activate the gate, you must pull up very close to the closed gate. This will activate the sensor and the gate will open.
