    Good morning OMS Community,

    Attached you will find the updates for the week of April 4, 2022. Term 3 Report Cards were published in Portal/FOCUS, so please take a moment to review with your child to accurately gauge their academic status. Wednesday we will facilitate our first round of writing Florida Standardized Assessments (FSA).  I encourage all parents/guardians to support our efforts by ensuring your child is well rested, ready to learn, and present in school daily going forward.  Students tend to get anxious this time of year due to the high stakes testing; but I know that our Teachers and Staff have equipped our students with the tools and strategies to maximize their performance on all state assessments.  Please visit our school website (or click here) for the OMS Spring Testing Calendar reflected on our school calendar (right side of the web site).
