Kindergarten Orientation

posted Mar 27, 2018, 6:26 PM by Geeta Suggs

At Kindergarten Orientation, parents will receive information about the Austin School District’s full-day kindergarten program, including curriculum, daily schedules, attendance requirements, the school year calendar, how to help a child prepare for school, and information specific to the individual campus.

Early kindergarten registration assists the District in determining enrollments, assigning staff, and meeting individual school needs. Accurate enrollment projections reduce the need to reorganize classes and teachers after school has started.

Enrollment Information:

  • Kindergarten students must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018.
  • All students new to Austin ISD must provide a birth certificate, current record of immunizations, child's last report card, proof of address (rental contract or utility bill with valid address), parent photo identification or driver's license, and the child's Social Security Card (optional).
If you are unsure which school your child will attend, call the Office of Student Services 414-1726.

Kindergarten Orientation April 3, 2018
8:30 AM

Online Registration is Open Now for 2018-19 School Year

Registration is open for students within Oak Hill boundaries by going to: https://www.austinisd.org/parent-information/student-registration





Austin ISD Safety

posted Mar 19, 2018, 1:09 PM by OHE Webmaster   [ updated Apr 6, 2018, 12:20 PM by Geeta Suggs ]

March 19, 2018

Dear Austin ISD families,

We hope that you and your family had a restful and relaxing Spring Break, but we understand that
tension may be high as our children return to school in the midst of the situation in Austin involving
explosives.

We want you to know we are coordinating with the Austin Police Department—along with state and
federal partners—to take any and all necessary security precautions.
This is what our campus faculty and staff are doing:
  • Being mindful of anything that looks out of the ordinary.
  • Contacting the Austin Police Department immediately if they see anything suspicious.
  • Conducting perimeter checks for any suspicious items inside or outside of school buildings.
  • Carefully examining all mail deliveries.
We remain vigilant with our safety and security measures, and we need your help.
Talk with your students about being cautious. Make sure they understand they should not touch
anything unusual or suspicious, and should report it to a trusted adult or the police. Remind other
adults, your friends, family and neighbors to do the same. No matter how minor, if you see something, it
needs to be reported to the Austin Police Department 9-1-1.
Additional actions you can take to improve safety when visiting your student’s school:
  • Enter through the visitors’ entrance and check in at the front office.
  • Do not let anyone “piggyback” on your entry into the school. Ask them to wait their turn.
  • Wear your visitor sticker in a clearly visible location.
  • Report anyone you see walking around campus without an AISD badge or visitor badge to the
  • front office.
  • Know that firearms are not permitted in school buildings at any time with the exception of those
  • carried by law enforcement.
  • Remember: “If you see something, say something.”
  • Follow Austin ISD’s social media accounts that may be used in an emergency. On Twitter, follow @AustinISD and on Facebook, like https://www.facebook.com/austinisd/.
  • Follow your school’s social media accounts that may be used in an emergency.
Additionally, you can talk with your child about reporting suspicious rumors or activity. Make sure your
children can name two adults at school that they would feel comfortable alerting.
Our campus counselors are trained to support students and staff and are available if needed. For more
advice about how to talk to your children about violence, visit the National Association of School
Psychologists online resources: http://bit.ly/2khji7j.

The Austin ISD team works closely with the Austin Police Department to keep our students safe. Know
that if you receive an alert from AISD, we are coordinating with APD to send those messages.
We are one, large Austin ISD family, and we care for all our children. It takes all of us to make school
safe, and we thank you for your assistance in keeping our students safe.

Sincerely,
Paul Cruz, Ph.D.
Superintendent

Giving Tree- Donate Christmas Gifts to Our OHE Families in Need this Holiday Season

posted Nov 25, 2017, 11:55 AM by Geeta Suggs   [ updated Nov 25, 2017, 1:53 PM ]

What is the Giving Tree?
The Giving Tree is a project that we have done at OHE for many years to help get Christmas gifts to our families that are in need. This year our Giving Tree will all be online. You will be able to click on the link below to select the items you would like to purchase for the child. Once you have selected the child and gift(s) you would like to purchase, please be sure to fill in your information in the Google sign-up, so we can get a hold of you if needed. There is an ornament number listed next the child's age and gender and this is very important to keep track of. You will need to write this ornament number on a paper and attach it to the unwrapped gift before you bring it in, so we know who the gift is for.

We are officially kicking off our Giving Tree now, so you can shop for some of your gifts on Cyber Monday, if you choose to, and get in on some of those great deals. We have SO MANY items that have been requested this year and we hope that you can help.

SIGN UP HERE:
Click here to see our ornaments that are available and sign-up here as well!

***When you are ready to donate, place your donation(s) in the office, next to the Giving Tree. Please tape a paper with the ornament NUMBER you signed up for online (column A) on the donated gift and do not wrap the gift(s). Donations will be accepted from now until December 8th.

***Donations of new and unopened wrapping paper, rolls of tape, and/or gift tags are also needed. Please place them next to the Giving Tree as well.

The counselors/volunteers will help sort all the gifts and the school will ensure that the families receive our packages!
We hope that you and your family enjoy this wonderful time of year and that you may be able to help our community.

If you have any questions, please contact Erika Ahumada, OHE School Counselor.
