Friday, February 16, 2018

On Friday evening, February 16, 2018, a picture was posted on the web that threatened harm to our school system. This threat was taken very seriously and White Oak PD took swift action to investigate the validity of the threat. By mid-morning, Saturday, February 17th, it was determined the threat was not real. Instead, it was a very ill-advised “prank” that led to a heightened level of concern for the District Leadership Team, White Oak PD and many members of the community.
Rest assured that this situation was handled swiftly, thoroughly and with the extreme level of concern merited by the message/picture sent. For those in the community that notified officials to raise this concern, Thank You for your action and level of awareness that allowed this to be handled in the appropriate manner.

White Oak Community Library Begins Contest

What could be a better way to begin the month of Love than with a Candy Guessing Game?  The White Oak Community Library has a big jar of conversational hearts ready to give away to the one child who comes the closest to the actual number of candies contained inside. The contest is open to all children ages 5 to 10 years. You must go to the White Oak Community Library to enter your guess. The library is open to the public on Monday through Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
