Guide to Communications

White Oaks School has established a number of channels and resources to facilitate communication around school-related updates, initiatives, programs, and activities. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter!

White Oaks Website
Our website is a one-stop resource for up-to-date school-related information, including staff and teaching contact details, school happenings and events, and PTA-sponsored initiatives. Bookmark our school website: http://whiteoaks.scsdk8.org

Weekly E‑Newsletter
The White Oaks School Newsletter, White Oaks Weekly (WOW), is published every Sunday. You will also find an archive of recent newsletters on our News page. The WOW highlights timely schoolwide news as well as SCSD, SCEF, PTA, and community news that is relevant to the White Oaks school population. As part of the White Oaks parent community, you will automatically receive this weekly newsletter every Sunday at the email address you provided via InfoSnap.

White Oaks School Directory
The White Oaks PTA uses families’ contact information from InfoSnap to create a schoolwide directory (families can opt out of the directory if they choose). This makes it easy for staff and families to contact one another. As part of the White Oaks School community, each family will receive a hard copy directory in October.

Room Parents
Classroom parents represent each class and play an important role in supporting individual classes and their respective teachers, helping to facilitate class-related events and activities. Classroom parents help with managing parent contributions, purchasing teacher gifts, collating and sharing PTA and SCEF updates, and assisting teachers with class events, parties, and special projects.

Emergency Communications
In the event of a significant emergency, parents will receive a phone call and email from our emergency broadcast system. Parents also may opt-in to receive a text message during the annual Infosnap registration process, or by texting “yes” to 67587. Please do not try to call the school office during an emergency.
