In order to fix some busing schedule issues at the later elementary schools, the district is making some changes to the school hours of three of the schools for next year. At OCRS, the new school hours for students will be pushed up 5 minutes, 8:15 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Students may be dropped off as early as 7:55 a.m. Supervision is not available prior to 7:55 a.m., so students may not be dropped off any earlier. After 8:15 a.m., students are considered tardy and MUST be signed in at the office. This procedure is in place for the safety of all of our students. When weather permits, students gather in the schoolyard prior to entering the school building. During inclement weather, students enter the school immediately and meet in the gym. Students who need to order lunch and/or eat breakfast at school shall proceed directly to the cafeteria upon arrival, then report to the schoolyard or gym (during inclement weather). view image
There will be land surveyors at OCRS this Tuesday, 6/4 as part of the elementary renovation project. They will be surveying the property of the school. I wanted to let parents and families know in advance so as not to be concerned if you notice surveyors on school property on Tuesday. view image
Just a reminder that the OCRS Field Day is being held tomorrow, May 29th during the school day. Mr. Gruczka has been working hard with our 5th grade students to design a wide number of activities and challenges that all OCRS students will have an opportunity to participate in throughout the day. Also, The PTA wants to say "Thank You" with an end of year celebration after Field Day for 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The celebration will include Kona Ice, free hot dogs and hamburgers, a DJ, a cool mist tent, and tons of fun for OCRS families. All OCRS families are welcome to attend! view image

5th grade went on a field trip to Camp Champlin on Thursday to participate in Project C.O.P.E. Students engaged in a number of physical challenges where they needed to use teamwork to be successful. It was a great experience, ESPECIALLY conquering the wall at the end! view image
