Oak Ridge Elementary School Family,
Welcome to Oak Ridge Elementary School, “Home of the Soaring Eagles” and our website. As a school community, we want our website to serve as a primary resource for our families. Here you will find information on activities that are taking place on our campus, who to contact with questions or concerns, or even how to share ideas on ways that we can work together to make our school even better.
Oak Ridge Elementary School has a dedicated and experienced staff, an up and coming PTO and School Council, and caring and committed families. We are fully committed to providing a safe, caring, and challenging educational environment that promotes learning and achievement for all students.
Please note that instructional time is extremely important for our boys and girls, and every minute counts. Our classes start at 8:30 a.m., and it is very important your child be present and on time so as to not miss any instruction. We appreciate your help in getting our students to class on time every day.
I can’t say enough how important parental involvement is for the success of a child. Throughout the year, you will have opportunities to meet with your child’s teacher, review academic achievements, and participate in events at Oak Ridge. It is our sincere desire that you take advantage of each opportunity offered as we work in partnership with you. In addition, we would ask that you consider joining our Parent Teacher Organization. The PTO sponsors several activities during the year and welcomes your input and support.
Take the opportunity as much as possible to visit our website on a
regular basis to stay up to date and informed. You can also follow us on Facebook at Oak Ridge Elementary or on Instagram @oakridgetally
If I can be of assistance to you in any way, please let me know. My door is always open, and I look forward to our continued work together.
Dr. Jasmine C. Smith Proud Principal

Florida State University’s Opening Nights and Leon County Schools teamed up this week to offer elementary and middle school teachers a creative new tool to teach math, in partnership with the John F. Kennedy Center’s Partners in Education program.
During the final "Superintendent’s Workday", Superintendent Hanna had fun with students & staff as a food service assistant while seeing, first hand, the day to day life of an LCS employee in the kitchen.
Leon County School’s Safe Schools Statement
Pursuant to federal law, students may not be denied a public education. As such, Leon County Schools is committed to providing a world class education in a safe environment for all students--regardless of immigration status.
LCS administrators will continue to enforce Board Policy 5540 in relation to non-DCF law enforcement investigations involving students on campus. This policy requires parents’ consent in order to provide access to students unless there is a warrant or an exigent/emergency circumstance such as an investigation involving a missing child.
LCS counselors have been trained to provide support for students and families who may be impacted by changes to federal law. The safety and security of all our students will continue to be our top priority.
