WA State Departments of Health & Transportation Survey

The Washington State Departments of Health and Transportation are conducting a short telephone survey of parents from our schools. The survey asks how students travel to and from school. The information will be used to improve student transportation.

The survey is voluntary and parents can choose not to participate. To ensure they will not be contacted, parents will need to state the school name, their child’s grade, and the phone number they want removed from the contact list. We are asking parents to opt-out by March 25th to ensure they are not called once the survey begins.

Oak Harbor School District Online News and Community Bulletin Board

Oak Harbor schools will no longer distribute materials on behalf of non-profit organizations that are trying to reach students and their parents. Instead, the district will provide those materials online for parents to view as they choose. This will save a tremendous amount of paper as well as staff time required to distribute the materials. It's estimated that schools distribute up to one half-million flyers and brochures each year for non-school events. Read the news HERE.

The Community Bulletin Board is provided to assist non-profit organizations to reach Oak Harbor students and parents with events and activities happening around the area. Visit the bulletin board HERE.
