Remote Learning

The Bobcat Way!

We are Stronger Together!

We are ready and well-equipped to welcome Buffett students to their 2020-21 school year. Our teachers are ready to utilize their experience and training in the use of blended learning strategies to provide a learning environment that is as close to face-to-face as we can be, virtually.


As we move closer to our first day in the new remote learning environment, we want to provide this advice:

  • be patient with technology, you may encounter problems and we understand
  • set up a space at table, desk, coffee table for your student to work
  • have your student wear headphones if you have them
  • families with multiple students may want to use separate spaces/rooms

How do I contact a teacher?

Using email is the easiest method of communicating with teachers. Your student can use their Outlook email account to email their teachers.


All school staff emails follow a firstname.lastname@ops.org name configuration. Teacher's names can be found on your student's schedule.

How do I find my schedule?

Your schedule can be found by logging into Infinite Campus. The most updated schedule will be ready by Monday, August 17th.


Students: Login to IC using your school username (without @ops.org) and your school password (student ID).

Example: username-smaxwet456, password: 123456


Parents: Login to your Parent Portal account. If you don't have an account or don't know how to login, please use the link below and have your student login.
