What's Up At The Nest...
Dear OMS families,
Thank you for helping us to make Thursday and Friday wonderful days for our in-person and remote learners. We welcomed back 568 in-person learners this week and the excitement was palpable. We ask for your continued patience during our drop-off and pick-up times. We forgot how many vehicles are dropping off especially in the winter. Please know that if our car line is backed up we do not mark students tardy. For example today, we did not mark tardies until after 9:10 am.
We would like to thank our PTA picture day chair and the parent volunteers that were able to help us on Tuesday and Wednesday. We had a lot of smiling students.
We hope you have a wonderful weekend, stay warm!
Erin and Julia
No lunch Switch
For the remainder of the year:
1st, 4th, and three 3rd grade classes will eat from 12:15 - 12:45 and then have recess from 12:45 - 1:15.
2nd, 5th, and three 3rd grade classes will have recess from 12:15 - 12:45 and have lunch from 12:45 - 1:15.
Now that we are in-person can my child Zoom in?
Moving Forward we will utilize the following guidelines:
For families that take a vacation - our teachers will do their best to provide your child with some assignments/alternative activities to complete while they are away. When you return, we will allow your child to Zoom into the classroom in order to follow the recommended quarantine guidelines by IDPH. Please contact our school nurse to determine a date of return.
For children that are sick and/or are required to quarantine - please contact the school office to report the absence and based on direction from our school nurse and administration, we will determine if your child can Zoom until they are cleared to return to school. Please keep in mind that teachers are not automatically on Zoom anymore so arrangements will need to be made. Children can no longer just jump on Zoom if they stay home.
