Coming Soon: Art Show & Fair

Spring Conference Week 2018: Volunteers Needed

Please come and help OPE host another successful Art Show & Festival! Thanks to the support of of our generous City of Carlsbad Art Grant we will have Cre8 Art Teachers available to help at our craft stations. BUT...we still need parent's helping hands to hang up your children's wonderful art. We also need support at our sign-in station to keep all the children logged in and safe as well as for station set-up & clean up. Also more help at the craft stations always makes things easier for all the participating creators. If you need to leave for your conference please find a back-up if you are doing the sign-in station. If you need to leave your craft station early just let another adult know. At this time we are only looking for adult helpers and not students. Thank you in advance for your support.

Although your first reaction would be to call or rush to school, please follow the steps listed below:

1. Check current status
Go to the OPE ( and EUSD ( ) websites for current information.

2. Have your phone ready
You WILL receive official communication from school or public safety officials. Blackboard Parent Link “all call system” will be used for frequent and up to date information as it becomes available. Please make sure OPE has your current cellular phone number.

3. Check news alerts
Tune in to local TV/radio stations for official school news alerts. We will be in communication with news channels. Listen for official information regarding reunification with your child.

4. Have your identification with you
Students will be released ONLY to parents/guardians who are documented as emergency contacts and who present a picture ID such as a driver’s license.

DO NOT call or rush to school. Phone lines and staff are needed for emergency response efforts.

DO NOT phone your child. Staff and students are discouraged from using cell phone communication for safety reasons. School policy requires students to keep their phones turned off and in their backpacks, so trying to contact them could increase worry.
