Principal's Corner

April 6, 2020 to all families and staff
Hello OMS Parents and Guardians,
I hope this message finds you and your family doing well and staying healthy. I am writing today to share that we at OMS are missing everyone, but I have been impressed with the positivity and tenacity that your children have demonstrated these last few weeks. Also, I want to inform you of some important updates.
• After consulting with our Monroe County Health department, and other area schools, we have decided that this year’s 8th Grade American History Trip to Washington DC has been cancelled. We will be in touch soon with all eighth grade families with additional information about this. We understand that this is an unfortunate situation yet the health and welfare of our students and staff remain our number one priority.
• Quarter 3 will come to an end on Tuesday April 14. Students will be assessed on work that was assigned prior to our closure on March 13 and have been given the opportunity to complete any missing work without late penalty during the last few weeks. They will have until April 14 to turn in any assignments that are past due. Report cards for Quarter 3 will be available online on Infinite Campus on Thursday 4/23 and more information will be coming on how to access them. If you would like a mailed copy of your child’s report card, please let me know.
• Starting on Monday April 13, students will be exposed to new learning and content so it will be very important for them to stay connected. Teachers will be in contact regarding additional information and please refer to the letter from Mr. Fallon sent on Friday 4/3.
• Quarter 4 will begin on Wednesday April 15. Please check Infinite Campus as your child’s schedule will change for their Special Area Classes (Music, Art, Digital Learning Lab or Family and Consumer Science (FACS). The new teachers will be connecting with your child via Teams to introduce themselves and begin the new course.
• Please remind your child to continue to check their school email account and login into Microsoft Teams daily for updates and assignments.
• Beginning at the end of this week, parents and students will be receiving a Weekly Update Document from OMS. This document will list the assignments your child is responsible for in the upcoming week. The goal of this is to streamline communication and keep parents in the loop for what work students are expected to complete.
• If you are having issues with your child’s laptop please call the helpline at 637-1904 or 637-1906 from 8 am to 3:30 pm Monday – Friday. You can also visit our district webpage at http://bcs1.ss14.sharpschool.com/news/what_s_new/bcsd_covid-19 for all important communication and information.
Again, I hope that you are all staying healthy and I hope to see you very soon. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email at Jerrod.Roberts@bcs1.org or phone at 637-1860 if you have any questions or concerns.
Sincerely,
Jerrod Roberts, Principal

Please feel free to call our Counseling Office at (585) 637-1863 if you are interested in coming in. We would love to see as many parents/guardians as possible on both days.  

Are you interested in being a guest speaker and share information about your career, business, and/or job with our students, and what pathway you took that led you to your job? Are you interested in sharing with our students your career story and what you currently do in your job?

Good Afternoon,

Just a reminder to all our families that progress reports and updated grades can be found on Schoology and Campus Parent. Please take a few minutes to review with your child their progress thus far and review the academic goals they set in September. You can review your child’s progress any time on either digital platform. If you don’t have access to either of our digital platforms you can call our Counseling Office at (585) 637-1863, and a progress report can be mailed to you. 

Report cards are mailed to all our families automatically after each marking period. Our first marking period comes to an end on November 6, 2019.

Information about our Parent-Teacher Conferences scheduled for November 21 and 22, 2019 will be mailed to all our families very soon.

As always, if we can be of assistance to you and your family, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (585) 637-1860, and we will direct you to the best person that can assist you.

Yours in Partnership,

Melody Martinez-Davis
