What's Up At The Nest...

Principal's Message

Dear OMS families,

We had a wonderful week at the nest. If you haven't already heard, Wednesday, Jan. 13th was National Rubber Ducky Day. This past week we hid 12 rubber ducky's around the nest for the students to find. It was fun to watch our students work together to find them. Below we have included pictures of their hiding spots.

There is no school this coming Monday, January 18th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We will return on Tuesday, Jan. 19th in Step 3: Hybrid.

Extra Masks!

If your child is playing in the snow, please consider sending extra masks as we are seeing they are getting pretty drenched outside. We are having students change into disposable ones while they dry, but an extra mask or two at school would be helpful for any unforeseen spills, sneezes, or accidents!

Picture Day Tuesday and Wednesday!

Please confirm with your child's teacher when they will be taking pictures. We will take pictures of all students, regardless if you choose to place an order so that they can be included in the class composite photo and the school yearbook.

Remote Families: Please sign up for a time slot below. We will check student temperatures when they enter the building and ask parents to wait outside.

School photos are being taken by Inter•State Studio. All orders will be placed online this year. Please visit and use Code: 50852YF to place your order. Online payments can be made via e-check, debit or credit card, or PayPal.
