Principal's Newsletter

Welcome to the Wood Oaks Newsletter.  This is my primary means of disseminating information to families, so please check back often.  I generally update this page once a week, usually on Fridays, but will occasionally put out a mid-week issue if there is information to share that cannot wait for the weekend.  To subscribe to this newsletter, click on the orange bell below, click on the newsletter, and fill out the pop-up form.

WO Newsletter Issue 11.19.21

School Closing (Only Posting)

All District 27 Schools will be closed from Wednesday, November 24 - Sunday, November 28 in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.  Schools will reopen under normal hours on Monday, November 29.  Due to the short week next week, there will be no principal’s newsletter next week. 

Student Vaccine Card Collection (Fourth Posting)

Northbrook 27 has created a new form to collect student vaccine cards. If you have previously submitted your student's vaccine card, you do not need to resubmit. Anyone who has not submitted their student's vaccine card and wishes to do so can complete the form here. These cards are being collected on a voluntary basis to help expedite our contact tracing process. Thank you for your partnership in this matter!

Yearbook Ordering (Fifth Posting)

Wood Oaks 2021-22 Yearbooks will be available for online ordering starting Saturday, October 16.  Yearbook ordering was not a part of online registration this year.  So, as of this newsletter, no one has ordered a yearbook to be delivered at the end of this school year.  All yearbook orders will be made directly through Josten’s. Starting tomorrow, you can click here to reserve your child’s copy.
