Hello OCRS families,
Thank you for the terrific turnout at this past week's Open House! It was wonderful for teachers and families to have an opportunity to talk about all of the great things happening at OCRS and for families to see their childrens' classroom.
Morning drop-off and afternoon pickup
Just a reminder to families that morning drop-off begins at 7:55 a.m. and ends at 8:15 a.m. After 8:15 a.m., all students and their families will be directed to the main office to check-in. Please do not enter the driveway in front of the school during morning drop-off because it is used by the buses and creates a safety hazard.
During afternoon pickup, do not enter the driveway in front of the school because it is used by the buses. All cars should enter and exit the parking lot on the right side of the school. We are fortunate to have a wonderful playground at OCRS and we welcome families to use that playground after school. However, for the safety of all of our students, please do not drive behind the school to park at the playground or walk through the buses to the playground until all of the buses have left the school. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
