Update 4/3- 

April 3, 2020

Dear OMMS Families,


Well this has certainly been an interesting time! First and foremost I want to send a HUGE, ENORMOUS, GIGANTIC thank you to everyone for all the help getting materials out last week! It took so many people working together to make sure we had our students’ materials ready to hand out! The staff at OMMS did a great job organizing, cleaning, and running to make it happen! And thanks to our families for being SO patient and terrific on the day of the check out! I think we had about 400 folks show up to gather resources and materials! It was so wonderful to see so many of our families that day!


This week we started our online learning. It has not been without some hiccups however we are working our way through it. I have gotten to “see” many students as I pop in on classes being held on google meets! I appreciate how our teachers and staff have gone above and beyond creating engaging learning opportunities for our students.


We haven’t heard any updates on when we will be getting back to “normal”. Everything seems to change daily so for now we will stay the course of online learning. MCVSD 51 is doing a really great job communicating so please stay connected with them. Also, we are trying to post regularly on our OMMS Facebook page so follow us on there to get our updates. We are finding many families have our email address blocked, please check to make sure we aren’t blocked and make sure we aren’t going to your spam inbox! You can also check our website for updates and information.


Our lunch and breakfast program are still up and running. There is a drive-thru service on the West side of the building, by the gym entrance, Monday – Friday from 11:30-1:00. Please take advantage of this service! Thanks to our amazing Kitchen Crew for making this happen!!


An important “tip” for our students on using Schoologymake sure you are using your D51 email address when logging in to Schoology. Many of the links won’t work if you are logging in from your personal email address, it must be your D51 email address. If you aren’t sure how to access it please let us know and we will help out. We are also tracking students and their progress on Schoology. As of Friday, April 3rd here are the statistics:

6th Grade-90% of students signed in

7th Grade-94% of students signed in (7th Grade is doing the best, come on 6th and 8th!)

8th Grade-88% of students signed in


We are certainly excited by these high numbers and we hope by next week they will be even higher. If you are in need support PLEASE reach out. We will also be reaching out to those of you who haven’t signed in yet to see what we can do to help you.


Our phone systems are set up so that all messages get emailed to us. Feel free to leave a message on our answering system knowing that we will receive the message and get back to you. Or feel free to email any questions, concerns, comments!


We miss you and love you!!! See you soon!

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....


 

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.
