More than anything we want your child to have an outstanding learning experience here at Spanish Oaks Elementary.  We set very high expectations for each of our students and will do our best in assisting your child to reach their potential.  Thank you very much for your continued support of our learning.  We could not do it without you!

  • Inclement Weather Plan

As the weather begins to cool, the expectation is for students to go outside on appropriate days.  Students need to come dressed for outside play.  When the temperature is below 20 degrees, students will be inside.  On days when the temperature is between 20-32 degrees, we will make a careful decision as to whether an 'outside' or 'inside' day is appropriate.  Wind chill, air quality and precipitation will always be taken into consideration when making these decisions.  As the inevitable ‘inside day’ is needed, we are grateful to our specialists who will supervise students in the school’s vestibules, providing appropriate inside activities. 

The front and back doors on the east end of the school will be open each morning at 8:00 a.m. Students are welcome to choose to stay inside or go outside once they arrive at school each morning.  If students choose to remain inside, they need to stay in the east hall by the lunchroom where supervision can be provided.  To facilitate student drop-off, the front doors on the west side of the school by the kindergarten rooms will be opened at 8:45 a.m.  Students are welcome in classrooms after 8:45 a.m.  We will continue to have our PM Kindergarten students come to the front door.  This will help us keep our students safe and our school secure.
