Old Town Elementary School

Dear Parents and Students,
        It is with great pleasure and excitement that I WELCOME you to our school.  Old Town Elementary is an amazing school and I know our new families and incoming Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students will love being a part of our learning community. Our school has a caring and hardworking staff that truly desires to help each child reach their potential.  We are ready to face the challenges of a new school year, and will continue to focus on academic excellence for all students.  
        ~As you return to Old Town Elementary, you will notice we have a few new additions to our family.  Please welcome the following new members:  Tammy Arrington and Susan Owens. And welcome back, Ms. Chris Lord:)  
Please remember the following policies have been put into place to protect the instructional time of our students and teachers.
  • Any student that arrives to school after 8:00 will be escorted to their class by the front office.
  • Any student being checked out before 2:05 will be sent to the front office by their classroom teacher. (Parents will not be permitted to walk to the classrooms to pickup children.).
  • All transportation changes must be made by 1:30.  Any transportation change received after 1:30 will have to be approved by administration.
  • Please do not allow your children to bring any electronics to school.  If they are found, parents will be required to pick them up in the front office.
  • Please don’t allow you children to wear flip flops to school.
  • OTES is making student attendance our top priority.  Please read the student handbook to ensure you know our attendance policy.
  • The front gates open at 7:35 A.M.  PLEASE DO NOT DROP YOUR CHIDLREN OFF BEFORE 7:35!  
          These policies are intended to aid our goal of continuous personal and academic improvement.  We are looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year. We ask for your support, involvement, and commitment to the educational journey that lies ahead.~
