About The School  

Orofino Elementary School



Dear Parents,


The faculty and staff of Orofino Elementary extend a warm and hearty welcome to the home of the Mini Maniacs. We are looking forward to a successful year for each student. As the new building principal, I am thrilled to work with the exceptional team of creative, professional educators who dedicate a tremendous amount of time and energy providing the best possible education for all of our students. With great students, great staff, and the supportive, wonderful parents we have in our community, I know that it is going to be a fabulous year!

Our goal at OES is to provide an excellent educational opportunity and a positive learning environment that prepares our students to become lifelong learners and contributing members of society. The consistent high performance of our students depends on a combined effort between home and school. This cooperative effort ensures the best possible learning atmosphere for our students. This booklet is intended to answer questions frequently asked about school operations and procedures. We request that you familiarize your child with each relevant topic found in the handbook. Please keep it available as questions arise throughout the year. We encourage you to contact us at any time you need assistance or wish to offer suggestions.  With this handbook, you will receive some colored information forms that we will need for you to complete and return, even if you have completed them before.  We very much appreciate the timely return of the forms that ask for completion and signatures.  This will ensure that we have the most accurate and up to date contact, medical, emergency, and other critical information needed to meet the needs that your child may have throughout the year.

Consistent and open communication is also very important to successful education.  We strive to keep parents informed through newsletters, back and forth folders on Wednesdays, and calls or text messages when needed.  I encourage you to share the method of communication and contact information with your child’s teacher that is most convenient for you.

We welcome your questions, concerns, and comments.  Please call or email us at any time or schedule a time to stop by and speak with a staff member if you need to discuss something.  You may also stay informed by going to our website:http://orofinoelem.id.ojsde.schoolinsites.com/ or checking out our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/OrofinoElementarySchool.  Thank you for sharing your child with us this year.  We look forward to working with you as partners in your child’s education.
