Attendance | Tardy Policy


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 four (4) or more tardies within one semester. 

For every tardy after four (4) in the current semester, another Administrative Detention will be assigned. For seven (7) or more tardies, ISS and other consequences will be assigned. This policy can be referenced further on page 21 of the HCS Code of Acceptable Behaviors (COAB). 

All Administrative Detentions will be held on Wednesdays from 2:30 - 4:00PM, unless otherwise communicated. Failure to report for detention 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 4:00.
