Oakdale Parents and Community,
Oakdale Grade School will continue to provide meals and deliver instructional packets to students on a weekly basis. We will run both bus routes every Tuesday for the remainder of the mandated school closure, like we did on March 31st. That went very smoothly. This will start on Tuesday, April 7th and buses will leave at 8:00 am. If your child doesn't ride the bus, we will also have a pick up/drop off line at school from 7:30 - 9:00 am. Report Cards for 3rd Quarter will also be sent out on April 7th.
Our Spring Break is scheduled for April 9th and 10th. We are going to cancel spring break and take those days off at the end of the school year. These will count as instructional days and meals will be provided during these two days. The last school day for students will depend on the longevity of the mandated school closure, and will be announced at a later time. The Spring Social, 8th Grade Graduation, Academic & Sports Awards, and other school functions are on hold until we get more information.
Thank you for your patience, perseverance, support, and understanding as we continue to remain flexible and adaptive with the ever-changing circumstances COVID-19 continues to throw at us. We are so grateful for the support we have received from the amazing community of Oakdale. Take care and stay safe.

Parents, we do not need you to call your child in for attendance during the mandated closure. We can count the work that students complete when we return.
Oakdale Grade School has created the "Viking Council". This is like a student council that any student in grade 5-8 may join. The focus of the Viking Council is to make Oakdale Grade School a better place to learn, make friends, and have fun! Viking Council meets once a week to decide what activities will be planned. Members of Viking Council will help younger kids know about the negative effects of bullying, by putting on skits or reading books to them. Other ideas include a tutoring program, school improvement, and helping out in the community. The 5th-8th grade students in Viking Council learn how to deal with bullies and what to do if someone is getting bullied. Oakdale Grade School was the recipient of a $500 grant offered by Tri-County Electric. This money will go towards Viking Council activities.
Viking Council invites everyone to wear bright colored clothes on Monday, March 18th in hope that Spring weather will be coming soon!!!
