What's Up At The Nest...

Principal's Message

OMS Families,

The temperatures are quite chilly, but the students love to be able to go outside and get some fresh air during the day. Just a reminder that if the wind chill is above zero degrees, we go outside for recess. Please continue to send proper winter gear for your children.

There is no school Monday, January 20th in observance of Martin Luther King Day. We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday!

Have a safe and wonderful snowy weekend,

Erin & Julia
