Student Work Packets Will Be Available Beginning Tomorrow

March 16, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians:

In an effort to continue the educational process for our students at White Oak Intermediate, the teachers and I have prepared materials for students to work on at home. Work packets will be available for pick up underneath the covered sidewalk at the main entrance beginning at 7:30 a.m., March 17th. Packets will be organized by grade level and will remain outside all week for your convenience.

Even though packets are prepared, please be aware if you have internet access, teacher blogs have links to many educational sites for students. Teachers have prepared review materials at this time, so no new material is being presented. However, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher.

We will miss our students terribly over the next few weeks. Our hope is that everyone stays healthy and in a learning routine to make the transition back to school easier when the time comes. At this time the projected return date for staff and students is March 30th. Should anything change, we will post information to our White Oak Intermediate main blog site at http://wois.wonecks.net/.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Rock
Principal

School Closure Information

White Oak ISD Community,

 

Out of an abundance of caution and for the safety and well being of students and staff, White Oak ISD will remain closed through Friday, March 27th (two weeks).  Students and staff will return to school on Monday, March 30th.

This decision was not made lightly, but due to the Covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and best practices, we consider this to be a prudent course of action.  All school events, UIL activities and trips are postponed during this two-week hiatus. 

Only essential district personnel will be present in-district during this time period.

Due to this emergency closure, the White Oak ISD Board of Trustees will adopt a resolution that allows hourly employees and other personnel to continue to draw salary.

The district executive committee for UIL events (Athletics, Academic UIL etc.) will meet in the coming days and develop a plan to make up missed games, events etc., as needed.  That information will be disseminated when it is available.

Campus administration is already working on plans for ‘stay at home’ learning projects and ‘on-line’ projects for students.  That information and those details will be disseminated by campus administration on Tuesday the 17th.  Information regarding Bi-district OAP, prom etc., will be disseminated at that time a well.

We apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause and the disruption of routine, but the health and well being of all Roughnecks will always be our guiding compass.

Please continue to check the White Oak ISD website, Facebook pages, blogs and other local news outlets for updates.
