Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #20 – Jan. 28th-Feb. 1st, 2019

Below is a peak at our week ahead followed by some important information items – have a wonderful week Gators!

Freestyle Soccer – Positive Messages for our Gators about Building COMMUNITY

Our Gator’s learned some new freestyle soccer skills as well as meeting some very cool Freestyle Soccer Pros. Magnet and Eli Freeze told their stories of resilience, bullying and how to continue to make OLOG a great place for ALL! Empathy, Inclusion, celebrating our Differences, being a Leader and looking out for each other, were just some of the messages that were shared along with super amazing soccer skills. On behalf of our Gators, Thanks Eli and Magnet for stopping by the SWAMP!

Student Safety and Parking at OLOG

Student Safety is our paramount concern and a reminder about parking and drop off will assist us with this goal…

  1. ALL students who live a far distance from the school qualify for busing and are picked up and dropped off each day safely.
  2. All other students live within walking distance to our school.
  3. For this reason, additional cars dropping off and/or picking up should seldom if ever be needed.
  4. But if this is needed, please remember NOT to stop and park at any point in front of the school.
  5. Cars must not stop at any point past the bend on either side in front of the School on Gracefield Crescent. Our buses can not turn the corner, if there are cars parked at any point on the bend on either end in front of the school. Students line up in this area and await our buses for loading, as well, walking student’s parents meet them in front of the school. Parking Officers have been out several times to ensure safety. Please park a safe distance from the school and walk up if you feel is needed at all.
  6. Thanks for your understanding and support!
