Back to School Oak Harbor

It is time for your kids to go back to school! Whether you are ready for summer to be over and eager for your children to return to school or dreading that school is starting in a week and holding on to every last moment of summer, orchestrating the logistics of staying in the know, scheduling appointments, collecting schedules, pick-ups and drop-off times of both schools and buses, meeting teachers, and getting school supplies can be overwhelming especially when several things have changed this year! We are here to help take away some of those stressors and make going back to school a breeze for you!

If your children are attending the Oak Harbor School District this year this is the right place for you!

One of the biggest changes this year is most of the SCHOOL SUPPLIES will be provided for you!

The Oak Harbor School district received funds through local levies that contributed to the school being able to provide most, if not all school supplies for students this year.  Each school has provided comments for what your child will still need. We have put them all in one place for you to include links to each individual school if you need further information.

Crescent Harbor Elementary School – parents will only need to provide backpacks and headphones!

Hillcrest Elementary – a backpack and headphones (no earbuds, please)!

Broadview Elementary –  a backpack and headphones (no earbuds, please)!

Oak Harbor Intermediate School – Suggestions for supplies that are not provided are a regular backpack, 2″ 3-ring binder (for organization), headphones, and a water bottle.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, federal programs provided funding for schools to provide free school meals for all students. Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, the funding that allowed for the free meals for all will expire. All families are encouraged to complete a 2022-23 Household Application for Free and Reduced-Price Meals if your household income is within the guidelines. Learn more about how to apply!
