Once again, Welcome Back! Let’s make it another great year at Oologah Middle School!
Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Oologah Upper Elementary! We are so excited to welcome your student back to school in a few weeks. We have worked very hard this summer planning, cleaning, decorating, and thinking creatively to ensure that your child has the best year of school ever!
I want to take a moment to introduce myself to you. My name is Kendra Adkins, and I am so excited to be the new principal of Oologah Upper Elementary! I am a lifelong Mustang who attended school in Oologah from kindergarten through graduation. Oologah Schools provided me with an exceptional education that sparked a love of learning and teaching in me from a very early age. I count myself blessed to have received my instruction from such dedicated and skilled teachers who gifted me with the best education possible, and I am completely committed to ensuring your student has the same amazing opportunity!
I am so excited to announce our building theme for this upcoming year: The Power of YET. Our building is truly adopting a growth mindset when examining the progress of our students and the effectiveness of the instruction we are providing. We are determined to focus on each child and his or her individual growth in all academic areas rather than trying to fit them each into standardized levels of achievement. At OUE, we truly believe that there is NOTHING impossible for our Mustangs! There is nothing they can’t do...they just might not be able to do it YET. This mindset is empowering for our students and their teachers, and it truly embodies the spirit of perseverance, determination, and grit that we want to develop in each child who walks through our doors.

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Oologah Lower Elementary! We are so excited to welcome your student back to school in a few weeks. We have worked very hard this summer planning, cleaning, and decorating to prepare for an amazing year.
I want to take a moment to introduce myself to you. My name is Crysti York, and I have been the principal of Oologah Lower Elementary for the past five years. I came to Oologah in 2009 and this will be my 10th year as a Mustang. I have spent the last 23 years teaching in Colorado Springs, CO and Lee’s Summit, MO before returning home to Oklahoma. Early Childhood education has been my focus over the years and I have to say it is my favorite. The Lower is where the “Mustang Magic begins.” I love my job and this community. I count myself blessed to work with amazing teachers and leaders in this district and a community who supports its school system. I cannot wait to meet students on August 20th when we open our doors for the Meet the Teacher night.

Storm Shelter Notes
Due to the dedication of its patrons on the April 7, 2015 Bond Issue, the Oologah-Talala School District is providing community storm shelters to protect area residents during tornado outbreaks, working in cooperation with the area's emergency services.
The storm shelters will be available and open to the public after school class dismissal on school days, full-time on weekends and school holidays and vacations, and during after-school athletic or activity events.
The storm shelters will be opened any time the school district is under a TORNADO WARNING or an adjoining county is under a tornado warning if a recognized path-calculated by television radar system projects the storm to hit the Oologah or Talala areas.
OTEMS ambulance, the Northwest Rogers County Fire Protection District and Oologah Police Department will ensure the shelter is opened when needed and emergency services are available consistent with the other needs created by such storms.
Recognized storm radars are those used by KJRH-TV2, Newson6 (KOTV-TV6), KTUL-TV8, and KOKI-TV23 (Fox 23) and their affiliates which use their radar path-calculation systems.
Residents should respond to the shelter immediately upon such a projection, as being caught in a car on the road when a tornado hits is extremely dangerous and the time to seek shelter is before the storm actually reaches the Oologah-Talala area.
Cars need to be parked in the marked parking areas only so access is granted to fire or emergency vehicles.
Shelters are equipped with battery backups and can provide enough electricity to ensure proper lighting for multiple hours in cases of power utility disruption.
Access to power for charging of electronic devices or other equipment requiring electricity is not provided.
Restroom facilities and drinking water are available, and most cell phones should be able to at least send and receive text messages within the shelter despite the reinforced construction, which is designed to withstand an EF-5 tornado.
Hand-held two-way radio transmission or reception will range from low-grade to impossible, and Wi-Fi or hard-wired computer hookups are NOT available.
Great News! You can now pay your child's lunch account with PayPal! Parents simply log into the "Parent Portal" go to the lunch account tab and use the PayPal button to complete the transaction! Even if you don't have a PayPal account, you can use the PayPal Guest login to add money to the account using a debit or credit card. Another great feature is the ability to divide the money with more than one student, so you don't have to worry about logging into each one of your students. You will be charged a $2.00 administrative fee for the convenience of paying online.
If you can't remember your Parent Portal login or password or do not know your login information email or call LaReesa Moore at 918.443.6055 or firstname.lastname@example.org
