Posted by bradleys | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on December 14, 2017

Following an administrative meeting this afternoon, it has been decided that ALL White Oak District campuses (high school, middle school, intermediate school, and primary school) will be closed Thursday, December 14th, and Friday, December 15th. This decision was made in the best interest and health considerations for our students, faculty, and staff members.

There will be NO outside activities of any kind (Boys and Girls Club, etc.). NO ONE will be allowed in the building during these four days.

We will return to school on Monday, December 18th, and we will follow the original schedule that has been set in place for next week. Our Christmas Parties will remain on the same days and at the same times.

I hope everyone gets a lot of rest this weekend and I look forward to seeing everyone back on Monday.

Wear Blue For Brock Tomorrow

Posted by bradleys | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on December 1, 2017

White Oak Primary School is joining together with our high school to dedicate tomorrow as “Blue-Out for Brock” day. Students and staff who wish to participate may wear blue tomorrow to show your support for this courageous little boy and his family. You are also invited and encouraged to take pictures and post them to the “Battle for Brock” Facebook page along with an encouraging word or message of support from WOISD. Hashtags being used include #battleforbrock and #prayforbrock.
Brock’s mom is Paige Austin Gumm, a White Oak graduate. Let us join together in the spirit of brotherhood and support for our neighbors and former Roughneck. Being able to support others in a time of need is a large part of who we are and what we represent at WOISD.
It’s battle time, so get your blue on tomorrow!
(Blue shirts, pants, socks, hats, shoes are encouraged. No blue hair, please.)
