    Good morning OMS Family,

    Attached you will find the updates for the week of December 10, 2018. OMS will be hosting a Movie Night and Open Gym on Friday, December 14th (5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.). This will serve as a great opportunity for our Parents/Guardians to go out to finish up Holiday Shopping and provide an opportunity for your Child(ren) to be supervised in a positive, safe, and fun environment. Additionally, I’m in need of your feedback to help inform decision making to shape future policy/procedures throughout our school community through participation in our SACS-CASI Accreditation feedback survey by December 14th (click here for link or see attached flyer).  We’re in need of 250 additional responses to attain the participation level from our Parent Stakeholder Group.

    • Parents please be sure that if you are dropping your student off for morning ELP/tutoring that you have them at the car circle gate no later than 8AM. Students will not be permitted to attend if they are late.
    • Students who are involved in credit recovery may now attend any/all credit recovery session(s) to work on their specific area of recovery.  Please utilize the days and times lissted below:
      • Monday – 8:00-8:45 – Ms. Moore G-106
      • Monday – 4:15-5:00 – Mrs. Juergens F-204

    Neighboring Construction Project: We want to inform you of what is going on with the land across the street from the schools.  The land belongs to Pinellas County and they are clearing the trees as they will be dredging Lake Seminole and will need a place to put the sediment and debris.  This project is projected to be a multi-year endeavor.  I will provide updates/information as it’s provided to me.

    Good morning Chiefs,

    I trust that everyone had a great Thanksgiving Break!  Please see attached Newsletter and Updates below for the upcoming week. 

    I encourage all Parents/Guardians to take time to log into FOCUS to monitor your child’s academic progress.  We offer Tutorial Services and Credit Recovery for all students through our Extended Leaning Program.  Additionally, we have partnered with Youth Achievers at YMCA Ridgecrest to accommodate families who need support with Transporting their child(ren) to take advantage of free after school tutorial services (please see attached flyer and supporting documents). 

    It’s my responsibility to facilitate an environment in which all students are safe and attain a quality education.  I’m calling on our Parents/Guardians to support this pursuit by echoing our expectations and taking advantage of the tutorial opportunities available here at OMS.  Additionally, I’m in need of your feedback to help inform decision making to shape future policy/procedures throughout our school community through participation in our SACS-CASI Accreditation feedback survey by December 14th (click here for link or see attached flyer).  We’re in need of 400 additional responses to attain the participation level from our Parent Stakeholder Group (Thanks in advance for your valuable feedback).  OMS will be hosting a Movie Night and Open Gym on Friday, December 14th (5:30 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.). This will serve as a great opportunity for our Parents/Guardians to go out to finish up Holiday Shopping and provide an opportunity for your Child(ren) to be supervised in a positive, safe, and fun environment.  Please see attached flyer for additional details.
