OLHMS Day 1 Update!
So exciting to have our scholars back today!
Thank You Families and Scholars!
Mustang Families and Scholars,
Today was a great first day at OLHMS! The energy and enthusiasm in our building was incredible! Huge thank you to our scholars for kicking off the year in the safest, most responsible and respectful Mustang Manner! Obviously, with any start to a school year we will have our challenges, we appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as we return to this full in person experience! Please know that we have had an influx of enrollment the past two days and this may impact program/ schedule changes for our scholars!
