Great news! Oakbrooke has been outfitted with three new water bottle stations for refilling water bottles! They are installed in the new water fountains. Please purchase and send your student with a water bottle each day to school. Please mark your child's water bottle with their name. We are excited for students to have their own personal access to water for safety and healthy habits.
