We Need Your Help!
Please make after-school/sibling/tutoring
arrangements with your children before you drop them off at school each
The office is being swamped by parents calling (sometimes 2-3 times a
day!) asking for a message to be given to their children before school
These calls really add up and create unnecessary additional work in our
already very busy front office.
Also, if your child is ill or cannot attend school, please call
or email the
school office at 543-6019 before 9:00 AM. This is very important. BJ
will have to call you if you do not call in, and you can help her avoid
a cumbersome task. So, we thank you in advance for teaming with her to
protect your children.
We appreciate your assistance with these requests!
OMS Extended Care Policy
have been some questions regarding the after school care sign in. Here are the
1) The official clock for determining check-in
and check-out time for extended care is the clock in room nine.
2) With the staggered
dismissal schedule, charges for care will not start until 3:10 PM. But at 3:10 PM, every student still on the school grounds must be supervised by
a school staff member (a coach, a teacher, or the ASA staff). Siblings
of students on a sports team must be signed in ASA. Siblings of students
being tutored must be signed into ASA, unless they, too, are with a tutor.
3) Students whose
parents are meeting with a teacher must wait outside the classroom on a
bench if they are not part of the conference. If they want to play on
the school grounds, they must be signed into ASA.
4) Only adults listed on the emergency card may pick up
students in ASA.
ASA telephone number after 3:45 PM is 548-0299
OMS Legacy Campaign
We are pleased to share with you a new vision for Old Mission School, the development of a downtown satellite campus to serve our growing middle school population.
Recently, Old Mission Church offered to make
available its share of a property on Palm Street, directly across from the
Mission parking lot, for the purpose of creating a Middle School satellite
campus only two blocks from the present school site. The property is owned
jointly by the Church and the Catholic schools of San Luis Obispo and presently
houses the OMS business office. The new campus would be home to four new
classrooms, a restroom facility, and an office and a teacher prep area.
For more information,
please visit the OMS Legacy Campaign page.
