Parents and Guardians: Your participation makes a huge difference in your child’s education! One way that you can support your child’s learning is to make sure she/he is in school every day and on time. There is a relationship between school attendance and success, the more your child attends school the more successful she/he will be in school! We understand that sometimes children need to be absent. When this happens it is very important that you notify the school that your child will be absent. This helps us plan for your child’s absence, collect homework, and make sure that your child can be caught up on what was missed. OOCS will excuse an absence for the following reasons: illness, medical/dental/counseling appointments, serious illness in the student’s immediate family, death in the family, physical emergency conditions (fire/flood, etc.) family emergencies and ceremony or religious observances. In order for the absences to be excused, the school office must be contacted by a parent either by telephone, email, or sending a note with your child the next day. If the school is not contacted the absence will automatically be unexcused. Call 475-2112 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate your support for education!
WEATHER CLOSING PROCEDURES
For weather related school closings, please refer to the following procedures:
1) An automated school notification system will call all households to relay information if school is closed. If you do not receive a phone call, know that the school is in session and on time. If you have recently changed your phone number please call 475-2112 to update our records.
When making decisions to close school or have a late start, the primary concern is the safety of the children on the bus route.
If we are open and you, as a parent or guardian, do not fel it is safe to send your child to school, it is an excused absence should you decide to keep your child home. It is IMPORTANT that you notify the school of your child's absence on these days.
