Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month
May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month! AAPI Heritage month was designated to commemorate the contributions and celebrate the impact made by AAPI individuals to American history, culture and accomplishments. This display was made by some students at Oak. Students were able to learn about influential AAPI figures and connect with classmates regarding their families and traditions.
Free and Reduced Lunch Information
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) can no longer extend current child nutrition waivers past June 30th. As a result, schools in Massachusetts and across the country will no longer be able to provide universal free meals after June 30th, 2022.
The application for free and reduced meals will be available in Mid-August. We encourage families to keep and eye out for future communications about when the application is available so they may apply as the new school year begins to ensure there is no loss of benefits to students.
