Attached to this email is a letter from the Superintendent regarding the required vaccines and a form for your child’s doctor to fill out and return to school. If your child has already had these vaccines or gets them prior to the end of the school year, please either email them to me or send them in to school.

We ask that you be on the lookout for the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 in your child through that date. Symptoms can include but are not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, headache, diarrhea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Not everyone will get all these symptoms.

Virtual Family Game Night postponed February 10, 2021 Dear Oak Ridge Heights Families, We hope this correspondence finds everyone well, safe and warm throughout these snowy, frigid days. On the flipside, we also hope that perhaps you have been able to enjoy some fun outdoor activities. We regret to announce that due to the lack of Oak Ridge Heights School 21 community response/participation, we must postpone our 'Family Game Night/Candy Bar Bingo'. We plan to reschedule this traditional PTO event at a later date, hopefully we will have more community interest/response at that time. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions, concerns or suggestions. We appreciate your patience and support.
