Checking Students In and Out of SchoolIf you need to remove your child from school any time during the school day, please be sure to check in at the office first. You will be asked to sign your child out and note the reason for taking him/her out of school. The office personnel will call your child from class via the intercom. To ensure safety, no student will be able to leave the classroom with anyone, under any circumstances, without permission from the office. Students will be released to the parent or guardian indicated on the student locator card (cards are maintained in the office). If you wish to have someone else pick up your child from school for any reason, please call the school beforehand and/or send a note with your child to alert the teacher/office. Students who arrive at school after 10:30 a.m. or leave school before 2:00 p.m. will be marked as a half day absence.Visiting the School
Parents and guardians are encouraged to visit their child’s classroom and to get acquainted with the teachers and many changes taking place within our schools today. One requirement we have is that, to volunteer, you fill out an Oak Harbor School District volunteer packet, which includes a Washington State Patrol Identification form. For the safety and convenience of all persons, we ask that you fill out the volunteer paperwork and, once it has been approved, contact the office or teacher prior to any visit so that an appointment can be scheduled We appreciate your efforts to keep Crescent Harbor safe!
School District policy requires that all school visitors/volunteers report to the office to sign in and pick up a name badge before entering the classroom or the playground. To ensure safety in our school, we have trained our school personnel to approach and ask unfamiliar faces for proper visitor identification.
All volunteers are required by law to have a Washington State Patrol Identification form completed prior to volunteering in the school or chaperoning on field trips. Forms can be picked up in the office. Carrie Riepma, Community Relations Coordinator at the District Office, will issue you a name tag once the paperwork has cleared the state patrol check. This form needs to be renewed every two years.
Emergency Information and Preparedness
Any changes of emergency information, such as the address or telephone number at home or work emergency contact numbers, and health information, should be sent to the school as soon as the changes occur. This information is essential in order to provide assistance to your child in case of an emergency.
The Oak Harbor School District has procedures that must be followed in the event of an earthquake, fire, or other emergency. Fire drills are held regularly. Procedures to be followed in the event of an earthquake or other emergency are practiced at least twice a year. School bus safe riding practices and bus evacuation drills are held twice annually.
