Welcome to Oak Grove Primary School's website! Here at Oak Grove Elementary School, we have nearly 800 students and over 100 faculty members. We are supported by an exemplary PTO which strives to enhance learning opportunities for our children and teachers. Students attending our school benefit by receiving high quality, systematic and explicit, scaffolded, and research-based teaching strategies.  Our educators all subscribe to the philosophy of being life-long learners; therefore, we are always seeking out the most current approaches supported by evidence and research to meet the needs of every single student.  We welcome and invite you to learn more about us by viewing our "blocks" on our web page.

ogpstransportationrequests@lamarcountyschools.org

NO LATER THAN 12:00 pm. NO texts will be accepted. Please do not try to email or message your child's teacher as he/she will be conducting instruction and may not see it.

Go Warriors!!

School Hours are 7:30-2:05  (SUPERVISION OF CHILDREN BEGINS AT 7:00 am

Carline Reminders:

  1. Please use the CENTER  and RIGHT (AFTER 7:00 am) lanes for morning drop off.  In the mornings, the left most lane is reserved for buses and overflow only.
  2. Students MUST be let out of the car by or under the supervision of a faculty or staff member. DO NOT let your child out of the car in the curve by the PAC or out front without an adult. Additionally, we ask that all students exit the vehicle from the passenger's side, so as to NOT walk. between vehicles.
  3. We complete this process more quickly if you watch the teachers on duty and pull all the way forward.  Additionally, please note that we do shut down carline at 7:27 in order to allow our teachers on duty to get to their classroom to begin instruction at 7:30.  If you enter campus at 7:27 or later, we ask you to park and walk your child up.
  4. Students MUST be put into the car or under the supervision of a faculty or staff member in the afternoons.  This is for their safety.  If you want your child to be buckled, in order to keep the lane flowing smoothly, we ask that you pull out of the parking lot and to the side to buckle your child.  Faculty and staff members do not buckle the children into vehicles..
  • YOU MUST HAVE YOUR CURRENT CAR TAG VISIBLE IN THE AFTERNOON WHEN PICKING YOUR CHILD UP.  IF YOU DO NOT HAVE YOUR CAR TAG, YOU MUST PARK, WAIT UNTIL TRAFFIC HAS CLEARED (AROUND 2:35), WALK TO THE OFFICE, AND SHOW YOUR IDENTIFICATION BEFORE WE WILL BE ABLE TO RELEASE YOUR CHILD TO YOU.  IT IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY TO KEEP EVERY CHILD SAFE.

School Every Day: Make Every Day Count

The Importance of Attendance:

* Attendance matters for doing well in school and life

* Attendance helps develop good habits

* Too many absences will slow down instruction for all students

* Children will suffer academically if they miss 10% of school days

* Chronic absences is a leading warning sign that a student will drop out

* Poor attendance affects funding your local school and school district
