WELCOME BACK MUSTANGS!
We hope everyone enjoyed this past week with family and friends! We are very excited to have our scholars back in the building this week looking forward to a wonderful next 17 days before Winter Break! Please encourage our scholars to be mindful of our Mustang Musts while using technology and always putting forth their best effort to complete coursework!
Here are a few updates and reminders:
COVID Update: We have seen an uptick in COVID positive cases over the past couple weeks. We will continue to proactively utilize SHIELD testing while maintaining our layered approach to mitigate future cases. We appreciate everyone’s support and understanding as we continue to navigate together.
SHIELD Testing: Testing at OLHMS will now take place on Monday. We have partnered with a new organization completing the tests in the same fashion. COVID-19 SHIELD testing at OLHMS is 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 December Lunch Menu.
