Dear Parent(s),

We are working to improve conditions for learning in our schools. Students will learn more effectively in a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment. We would very much appreciate your help by completing the short survey attached. Your perceptions about your child’s school will help us identify what we are doing well, and what we need to do better. 

If you have more than one child in this school, you may pick which one you want to think about when answering the questions. This survey is anonymous. No one will know which answers come from you, and it will not be possible to connect your answers to your child in any way. Thank you for your feedback and support. To take the survey, please click on the link below.

OMS Attendance Policy:

  • When your student has 5 unexcused absences, you will receive a letter informing you that your student has 5 unexcused absences, and you will have to attend an Attendance Meeting with an administrator.

OMS Tardy Policy:

It is very important that all students arrive on time to school so that they are in their first class no later than 7:15.  An Administrative Detention will be assigned when students have reached five (5) tardies in first semester

(August – December).  For every tardy after five (5) in first semester, another Administrative Detention will be assigned.  Tardies will start over for second semester which begins in January.

All Administrative Detentions will be held on Mondays, from 2:25 – 3:30.  Students assigned are to report to the theatre following afternoon dismissal and lockers.  Failure to report may result in a suspension to a parent conference or further consequences.

Parents are responsible for transportation and should pick up the student in front of school at 3:30.

School Meals:

Reminder: OMS is not a CEP school; students have to pay for their meals. I encourage everyone to fill out a free/reduced lunch form online at this link: https://www.nlappscloud.com/Welcome.aspx?api=4440375fbce149aec588846b0f2bc5e5#loaded.

If you need a form in Spanish, please ask your student to come to the Main Office to pick one up.

If you would like to put money into your student's account, you can either give your student money; you can bring in money, or you can put money into your student's account online here: https://www2.mypaymentsplus.com/welcome
