Mark Your Calendars!  Grandparents' Day is Monday, January 26

  • Option 1: Grandparents will arrive at the Mission gardens by 10:00 to be greeted by grandchildren and join us for mass.  After mass, grandparents will come to school for their bistro or picnic lunch and stay for the sock hop.  If the weather is clear, families may set up tables in front of the school, on the playground, or under the covered walk, If there is rain, these grandparents will have their family lunch in the classroom and stay for the musical entertainment. Grandparents and grandchildren are dismissed at 12:45 PM. The rest of the school will be dismissed at the conclusion of the sock hop at 1:00 PM.

  • Option 2: Grandparents will arrive at the Mission gardens by 10:00 to be greeted by grandchildren and join us for mass. After mass, grandparents who would rather not brave the elements may sign out their grandchildren in the front office and go out to lunch. My only request would be that grandchildren host and pay for lunch. Grandparents are being celebrated, and should be luncheon guests.

  • Please decide as a family ahead of time which option you would like. Be sure everyone comes back down to the school after mass before any student is signed out. All students must be signed out in the front office.

  • ASA will be available.

OMS Extended Care Policy

There have been some questions regarding the after school care sign in.

Here are the requirements:

1)  The official clock for determining check-in and check-out time for extended care is the clock in room 9.

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 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.
