OMS Tardy Policy


There are changes that occur each year based on successes and failures.  Each year OMS finds tardiness to school an increasing problem.  There are some students who are late 3 times a week or more.  In an effort to re-enforce our P.O.W.E.R. standards, we are encouraging students to take ownership for their attitudes and actions.  If tardiness is a problem: make arrangements in the evening so that clothes are ready to go for the next day; check the alarm clock to make sure that it is ready for the next morning; move the clock far enough away that you have to get up to turn it off.  These are just a few suggestions.  Being late to school is disruptive to the classroom, not to mention the missed instructions and learning. 


Students who are tardy to school without a doctor/dentist note stating they were at an appointment will be assigned a lunch detention.  Please help us by encouraging and helping your student to be to school on time.
