Vision Statement: Equipping Students for Life 


March 20, 2020


Dear OMMS Family,


Thank you for your patience as we try to work and learn together during this interesting time! As you have heard from D51 District Leadership, the OMMS building will be closed at least until April 17th with instruction being delivered online beginning March 30, 2020. There are many questions that we do not have the answers to just yet; however, here is what we do know....


Locker Cleanout and Chromebook Distribution-

Locker Cleanout and Chromebook Distribution will occur on Tuesday, March 24th. Please pull into the student drop off and pick up lane during the times listed below. We will come to you and ask for your child’s name, Student ID number, locker number, and give you a paper to sign. Depending on how crowded it gets, we may then ask you to park in the lot. We will have runners  go into the building and retrieve items from lockers and classrooms. We will then deliver the Chromebook and charger as well as other retrieved items to your car. If you will be walking to the school, we ask that you respect the social distancing guideline of 6 feet between persons while waiting outside under the front awning. We appreciate your patience during this process as we may have several families arrive at the same time and will have runners doing the best they can to get your child’s materials as quickly as possible. Here are the pick-up times:


10:00 am - 12:00 pm: Child’s last name A-L 


12:00 pm - 2:00 pm: Child’s last name L-Z


(NOTE: If you have children with different last names, you may take care of it in one trip. For example: child one, Sam Adams, child two, John Smith-you may retrieve their items from either time frame: 10:00-12:00 or 12:00-2:00.)





Attached please find a Chromebook Checkout Sheet. If your student is in need of a device (we don’t have one for everyone so please only ask for one if you are in need) please print it and have it filled out and ready to go when you come to get the Chromebook on Tuesday 3/24. PARENTS AND STUDENTS BOTH NEED TO SIGN THE FORM. We will have additional copies available on Tuesday; however, it will speed things up if you have already filled out!


Medication Pick-Up-

If you have medication at the school that needs to be picked up, we ask that you use our drive-thru service on March 24th with the times listed above. Medications can only be released to parents or legal guardians. 


Again, this is a fluid plan! We will all need to be patient while we figure it out. If things get really backed up, we ask that you please be patient and know that we are all doing our best in these unprecedented times. Please plan on it taking some time for us to get the materials to you once we have your child’s information. While we are trying to have drive thru service, it may not be FAST drive thru service.


School will be completely closed starting 3/25/2020. Only the custodial staff will be allowed access to the building at that point. So, if your student needs something out of the building, it must happen on 3/24! At this time, we will be unable to access the building from 3/25-4/17/2020.


LUNCH and BREAKFAST Daily-

From March 23rd on, there will also be a lunch and breakfast service. It will run much like a drive thru service as well. Meals will run Monday through Friday from 11:30-1:00. Students will be provided with a hot or cold lunch option as well as a grab and go containing the next day’s breakfast. On March 24th only, we ask that you go to the south side of the building (by the gym entrance) for your food delivery as we will have the Locker Cleanout and Chromebook pick up happening in front.







Instruction Delivery-

Remote Learning will begin March 30, 2020.


Each teacher will provide a minimum of 3 lessons a week. We will be using our Schoology Platform. Most students already know how to use Schoology, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to navigate the technology. Teachers will be online daily (M-F) at least from 9:30-12:30 to help students.

Students will be expected to check-in daily and do their lessons.

● Routine and structure are going to be very important for your child. We suggest creating a place in your home where your child can be distraction free and use his/her Chromebook or other device.


● Make school time a priority. The consistency of routine and communication with OMMS staff is good for your child. Set the expectation at home that school IS in session and M-F students should be completing coursework.


● Device - Computer, Chromebook, Tablet, or Ipad will all work for online school. We do

not recommend the use of a cell phone. If your child needs an electronic device, we have a process for checking one out to you (see chromebook distribution above).


● Teachers will be communicating specific details about courses on March 30.


Communication-

Please feel free to email any OMMS staff with questions, needs, or concerns. We will also be checking our voicemail from alternate locations; however, email may be the most immediate way to connect.


If you need more information regarding internet access or other FAQs please refer to the D51 website at  www.d51schools.org.
