Dear Parents and Students,
It is with mixed emotions that I write you this short letter. I am very excited about all of the hard work and dedication that our students have shown this year. Even some of our students who had a rough start, buckled down to take care of the work at hand. We have seen so much growth and we enjoy celebrating these accomplishments. I am sad because we are closing our doors after 52 years of service in our community. I have been here for 15.5 of those years and can't think of anywhere else that I would have liked to be. It has been my pleasure working with the families in this community and seeing some of my former students here as parents now. My how time flies when you are having fun! This has been an amazing year filled with new experiences, exciting accomplishments and collective responsibility. Thank you for trusting me with your children, their education and their overall learning experience. Your involvement and support has meant the world to me.
If you need to get in touch with me over the summer, I will be housed at the College Park Elementary School site until the new Mount Olive site open. Feel free to email me at anytime or call me at 470-254-8040 beginning May 28, 2015.

Oak Knoll Emergency Procedures: Oak Knoll has processes and procedures in place in the event of different kinds of emergency situations. Some situations such as a bomb threat, gas leak or chemical spill call for an off-site evacuation. In the event that the school has to be evacuated off-site, parents will be contacted by staff regarding the evacuation, and specific location for pick-up at a designated reunification site. This is one reason that it is of the utmost importance that you send updated contact information to the school to ensure that the staff is able to reach you immediately. The transportation department will also be contacted regarding the site change. Buses will be rerouted to the reunification site to collect students who normally ride the bus and transport them home.
