What's Up At The Nest...
Dear OMS families,
We are so excited to welcome back our kindergarten, first grade, and fifth-grade hybrid students next week. Mondays will remain remote for all students. Our teachers have been preparing their classrooms for our returning owls, and the energy in the building feels like the first week of school again! Hoot, hoot, hooray!
We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to our PTA who "Stocked the Lounge" for our staff during our Hybrid Learning Planning Days. The kindness and generosity are incredibly appreciated. See the photos below! (Can you spot Mrs. Kappelman?)
In continued collaboration,
Erin, Julia, and the OMS Staff

Another (much better video) produced by Mr. Harris showing students what they can expect. Please note, OMS students will NOT be lining up on the playground before school.
Medications for 20-21 School Year
Medication for This School Year
As we are set to begin Hybrid In-Person Learning, it is important to note that all medication requests must be renewed each school year. All medication administered at school (including over-the-counter medication) requires a completed Medication Administration Form with physician and parent signature. We cannot accept medication without an updated medication form.
All inhaler requests require a parent signature and a photocopy of the prescription label from the inhaler box placed on the Asthma Inhaler Permission Form. In addition, legislation directs school districts to request an Asthma Action Plan for all students with asthma.
Food Allergy Emergency Medication
All food allergy emergency medication requests (epinephrine and antihistamines) must be renewed each school year. Required forms include Illinois Food Allergy Emergency Action Plan, Lunch Table Preference Form, and the Annual Severe Allergy Survey.
Please provide medication as ordered by your physician (i.e. if the provider orders liquid, provide liquid form) and please check expiration dates of medication. No expired medication will be accepted.
Please submit all medication(s) and completed form(s) for this school year to the Olive Health Office on:
- Monday, October 5th 8:15am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-3:45pm
- Tuesday, October 6th 8:15am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-3:45pm
- Wednesday, October 7th 8:15am-12:00pm or 1:00pm-3:45pm
- Thursday, October 8th 8:15am-1:00 pm
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 847-398-4283.
