Oologah Lower Elementary recently discovered a controlled case of bed bugs. Our school has partnered with health officials, a licensed pest management company, and law enforcement to put into place the proper procedures to care for all parties involved. Even prior to this concern, our maintenance department provided weekly pest control visits and treatments as precautionary measures, and these efforts were increased when we were notified of this current case. After our pest control visit last night, we do not have an infestation of bed bugs, but rather only an isolated case that is being handled with the utmost care. I can assure you that no bugs were found at OLE today. We appreciate your patience as we continue to do everything we can to provide a safe learning environment for our students. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the office.
We apologize for all of the confusion with our lunch menus. They are now updated on our school website and on the OLE Facebook page.
Hello OLE Parents! We wanted to let you know that our Remind communication app has been connected under a district hub this week. The technology connection had a glitch that caused a few families to be deleted from your teacher's classroom. Teachers are sending information home with your child today on how to get reconnected. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate all of your support!

Remote Learning Day Oologah Lower Elementary students will be coming home with a blue Remote Learning Bag. Inside the bag, you will find paper assignments to be completed tomorrow. The assignments are an extended practice of skills that have been taught this year. The Remote Learning Bag needs to return to school with completed assignments in order to be counted as present for Remote Learning Day. If assignments are incomplete, students will be counted absent for Friday, September 22, 2023. Thank you for your continued support with your child's education!
Safe Drop-off Procedures: In order to ensure your children safely make it into the Lower Elementary each morning, please do not allow your children to unload until you have safely pulled into the Lower parking lot where we have someone supervising their arrival. Our students' safety is our top priority, thank you for your help!
It's Picture Day at the Lower Elementary on Friday, September 8, 2023.
Attention OLE Pickup Parents: If you will be picking your child up from Oologah Lower Elementary on Thursday, August 31, 2023, and Friday, September 1, 2023, do not use the Softball Parking Lot to form our line. We are hosting a softball tournament on these two days, and doing so will impede the traffic for this event. Thank you for your assistance with this matter!
August 28, 2023 Dear Parents and Guardians, Due to the recent threats that have taken place at Union Public Schools, we are reaching out in an overabundance of caution to inform you that the safety of our students is our number one priority. We are in communication with teachers and staff, upper administration, as well as our school resource officer to ensure extra safety measures are in place. This is not to alarm our students and families but rather to provide peace of mind in knowing your students are safe and taken care of while they are at school. Although there have not been any immediate threats specifically to Oologah-Talala Public Schools, we have limited access to our buildings, as well as increased admin presence in hallways and at recess. As always, please do not hesitate to call the school with any questions or concerns. Respectfully, Kaysha Bell Oologah Lower Elementary Principal 918-443-6000 EXT 6144

Thank you for such great attendance at Meet the Teacher! Parents will not be allowed to walk students to class on the first days of school to ensure smooth traffic flow. We have plenty of staff available to make sure your child knows what to do upon arrival. Thank you for understanding and cooperation with this matter. We look forward to seeing all of the kids tomorrow, and to an amazing year at Oologah Lower Elementary!
OLE teachers will be sending an invitation to sign up for their Remind classroom today. Once you have accepted their invitation, you will receive a message about Meet the Teacher. We are having to shift to a drop-in schedule for Meet the Teacher instead of appointments due to technical difficulties. Class lists will be posted in the front windows of the Lower Elementary by 3 pm.
