We also highly recommend that you attend one of our Parent Orientations. This year we will be offering two opportunities for you to come and learn or be reminded about various school policies. We welcome all new and returning parents to join us. The first Parent Orientation will be on Tuesday, August 6th at 8:30am. The second Parent Orientation will be on Monday August 12th at 5:30pm. Our Upper Grade parents (grades 6-8) will have a separate orientation to discuss items specific to middle school. This Upper Grade Orientation will be on Tuesday, August 13th at 5:30pm.

Aside from Orientations, we encourage all families to attend our Back-to-School Meet & Greet on Friday, August 9th from 6:00-7:00pm. This is a great time to meet your child’s teacher(s) and get acquainted with the students in the class for the year. It is usually the first time for our OCS students to meet up with their friends after enjoying their summer.
