November 10th Announcements

Schools and offices are closed tomorrow in observance of Veterans Day.

From The OMMS Nurse

Dear parents:  Our community continues to see an abundance of flu cases. Flu often presents with body aches, chills, cough, sore throat and fever. This strain also seems to have some gastrointestinal symptoms, as well. Please be mindful of these symptoms and keep your child home if they are feeling significantly ill with any of these symptoms.  

Please remember that SCBOE states that a student should not attend school until he/she has been fever free for 24 hours WITHOUT the use of fever reducing medications.  Please use the following Google form to report any confirmed or suspected cases of the flu so we can monitor the severity of this outbreak. Thank you!

The boys basketball game vs Thompson on Nov. 14th will promote Join the Fight Night to raise awareness for childhood cancer.  All proceeds from ticket, concessions and shirt sales will be donated to a charity organization called Kids Join the Fight.  Walker Beery, who was diagnosed with Pediatric Brain Cancer in 2019, started this organization. Walker sadly passed away last year, but his vision of fighting childhood cancer lives on through this organization. Students are encouraged to wear yellow to the game in support of the cause. Additional donations will be accepted at a booth located at the entrance. Thank you in advance for your support. More information about this charity can be found at Kidsjointhefight.org.  Purchase this JOIN THE FIGHT T SHIRT by clicking on the following link.  Kids Join the Fight Shirt
