Remote Learning Information

OCRS Faculty and Staff will miss our students while in virtual learning. A school campus isn't the same when the hallways aren't filled with the sounds of little voices. We hope that virtual learning will help slow the spread of viruses and give our system a much-needed moment to recover from illnesses within our staff and students. Our staff is here to assist you through this time. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have regarding your child's virtual learning.

Please continue to report it to the school if your child tests positive or has a covid exposure.

Chromebook and Work Packet Distribution

For Students Who are in Attendance on Thursday:

  • Chromebooks will be sent home with students in grades 1-4. Packets may also be sent home. Students in grades 3 and 4 are required to log in to their Google Meets each day for attendance. Signing in on a Chromebook is not required for grades K - 2 however, these students will return the paper packets to school. Their completed paper packet will count as their attendance.

For Students Who are Absent on Thursday:

  • Contact your teacher for material pick-up once you are able. We can arrange for pick-up any day starting Monday.



Each day, a newsletter will be sent out on our social media and website for students to be able to participate in specials. Areas such as PE, music, STEM and more will be in this newsletter. Be on the lookout!

Teacher Virtual Office Hours will be used to check in with the students, answer questions, and check for understanding of learning.

Teachers will be available by email from 7:15 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. each day. All teachers will also be available to answer questions, review lessons, or help students. Please contact your child's teacher for specific office hours for this. Teachers will send a Google Meet link for these meetings.

Special Education teachers will continue to provide services remotely as well. These teachers will email you to let you know the times and how those services will be provided.

Free Breakfast and Lunch

Lunch will be available for pick-up each day from 11:00-12:00 at the lunchroom door at the back of the school near the baseball field entry. This is by the dumpsters. Breakfast for the next day is also in the pick-up meal. Only OCRS students will be provided meals at our school. If you have a second student in attendance at NHHS, you must pick up their lunch on that campus. Names will be checked off. Please see the link below to pre-order OCRS meals to help our cafeteria works and to read more about meal pick-up. PLEASE WEAR A MASK WHEN PICKING UP MEALS.
