OES SCHOOL DIRECTORIES

THE OES PTA DIRECTORY 

AND A to Z CONNECT APP

Have you received an email lately asking you to verify information for the Oakton Elementary Directory? 

In an effort to create an accurate and timely directory for Oakton Elementary, we are using a web-based system to allow parents to verify/edit their own directory listings.

Recently, you should have received an email from OaktonES@atozconnect.com asking you to verify/edit your information. Verifying your directory data should take no more than 5 minutes. Please follow the instructions in the email to complete the verification wizard within one week of receiving this email.  If you don’t, your information may not be correct in the print and online OES directories.

FAQs REGARDING THE OES DIRECTORY and A to Z APP

Who is listed in the Directory and A to Z App? 

Everyone who did not opt out through (1) the FCPS opt-out form you received at the beginning of the year OR (2) the opt-out option during the verification process mentioned above.

What if I didn’t receive this email? 

All returning OES families should have received this email so we can make sure we have the most current information. New families did not receive this email because their information is current.  If you did not receive this email, and think you should have, please contact our Directory Chair, Thursa Pecoraro or  Nicole White.

Who receives a copy of the printed directory?

Every current PTA member will receive a copy of the printed directory when it is distributed later this fall.

Who is given access to the online A to Z Connect directory?

For a very limited period of time, everyone who was sent an email requesting verification will have access to the online directory.  After that period of time, only current PTA members will have access.

If I am not a current PTA member (membership must be renewed every year), can I join now and still receive a directory and online access? 

Absolutely!!  Link to join: CLICK HERE
