NO SCHOOL Tuesday, November 2, 2021
Mustang Scholars and Families,
We hope everyone enjoyed a safe and spooktacular weekend with your families! We are very proud of our school community for taking part in some fun activities this past Friday.
Do not forget we do not have school tomorrow due to a District 123 Staff Institute Day. We look forward to having all of our scholars back on Wednesday and you should look forward to our Special Edition Newsletter coming for our Friday’s fun!
Here are a few updates and reminders:
IAR Reports: Spring 2021 reports are being distributed to scholars this week! This is the link for the parent letter.
SHIELD Testing: Wednesday, 11/03/21 will be our 6th COVID-19 SHIELD testing at OLHMS only for those that have already completed the OPT-IN form and signed their student up in Skyward Family Access.
The SHIELD Illinois program is a quick, simple, and non-invasive COVID-19 screening test. Students that have opted-in to the program will provide a small amount of saliva that is tested at a professional lab. Results of the test are then provided to families and our school district within the days following. The program offers students the opportunity to reduce or waive quarantine requirements in the event of close contact with a positive case or if the student demonstrates symptoms. You can opt-in to the program at any time by accessing Online Forms in Skyward Family Access. More information about the SHIELD Illinois program can be found at: d123.org/shield-illinois-testing-program
Scholars should not be eating or drinking 1 hour before being tested.
Registered families will only receive results in the event that a student tests positive.
Please reach out to the school if you have registered via Skyward and the system didn't accept it.
Lunch: Here is the link for the November Lunch Menu.
Parent Pick Up and Drop Off: Please continue to exercise a courteous approach when dropping off and picking up scholars! Scholars should not be running across the street to get into your vehicles. Our main entrance is for buses only during the entry and dismissal process. All students being dropped off during entry or picked up by parents during dismissal should be done in the back of the building on Oak Center Dr. We have also gotten concerns from our neighbors about driveways being blocked or parents parking in driveways for drop off. Please be conscious of our neighbors and their ability to get in and out of their residence.
