Although the Building is Closed... School is in Session!
Oakhill Day School is taking all precautions to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety and well-being of our community (and the greater local and regional community) is our top priority.
Starting Monday, March 23, Oakhill will conduct all classes virtually and all Admissions tours will also be held virtually, Monday-Friday, until we return to campus tentatively on Monday, April 27. Please contact Dorothy Beckham, Director of Admissions and Financial Assistance with questions about enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year.
Please complete this form prior to your scheduled virtual tour:
Updates are being provided to the Oakhill community via our Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates Webpage. We plan to add all updates to this page so that all information is in one centralized location.
We're Getting Ready for Your Return!
So now that we aren't at school...what's going on there? I'm sure you are keeping an eye on construction news as that remains full steam ahead during this time away from school. But what about the rest of the rooms? Randy Owen and his cleaning crew, along with Chris Beckham (our facility coordinator) have been working hard to clean and sanitize each room--and everything in the room! By everything, we mean everything. They are slowly working their way through each room, wiping down all items, shelves, floors, walls, and more. We want to thank all of them for their tireless efforts to keep our facilities running and clean for our return.
As I mentioned, construction on the new lobby continues while we are out of the building. Luke Draily Construction is hard at work putting up walls in the new lobby, Jeff Johnson worked hard to get our train hallway ready for new doors, and a few other vendors have been in and out of the lobby area fixing it up. By the time we go back to school, things will look different for sure!
You might also have some technology questions as you get into the online learning system--as you have seen from previous notices, Sara Verwers, Lacy Meier, and I are here to help. But what you might not know is that our IT partner, K12Itc, is also here to help if you have questions with your computers. They are a phone call away and can give some tips and assistance to all our families if you run into technical difficulties with your computer systems during this time of doing your schoolwork at home. Simply give them a call at 816-382-4840.
I'd love to see what you are working on at home!
