Oblong High School and Oblong Grade School plan to honor graduates in accordance with the new ceremony guidelines. More information will be posted soon.

This is a reminder that Remote Learning will be used at OES and OHS for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The last student “attendance” day is Thursday, May 21. Which means Remote Learning will continue up to that date for our students. If they are a graduating 8th grader or Senior, their last day is their original graduation date. 

 

This week, April 27-May1, we are having OES students turn in their completed work for the month of April. There will be another time in May for students to drop off their completed materials for the month of May. It is our plan to give out student belongings that are in the building at the drop off in May and have students return their textbooks. Please continue to follow the Oblong Schools Facebook page for those dates. 

 

We understand that graduation is very important to our students and their families; therefore, we still hope to have traditional graduation for the OHS seniors at a later date if at all possible. In the meantime, we are planning a way to honor our OES and OHS graduates in May. In addition to honoring the graduates, there will also be an alternative awards program for OHS. Stay tuned for more details. 

  • Oblong Schools will provide free breakfast and lunch for our students Monday-Friday during the closure. Daily grab and go pick up will be available in the south parking lot at Oblong Grade School from 10:30-11:30. Each meal sack will contain breakfast and lunch. Delivery is available for those in need. Someone from the school will call you today to see if you would like food service for you child. Food Service starts tomorrow March 17th. 
  • Students or parents may contact us in an emergency by emailing help@oblongschools.net. This is for emergency needs during the school closure period. Guidance Counselor services, needed emergency items, or contact with emergency service providers may be requested using this email address. 

Remote Learning Days Update:

The Illinois State Board of Education has announced that remote learning will occur for the duration of the suspension of in-person instruction. Our students, faculty, and staff have been working together since the school closure with e-learning projects and activities. This will now continue under the definition of remote learning. A remote learning day is defined as an educational program designed to provide continuation of learning for students under conditions that prohibit the learner and instructor from being in the same physical space.
