answers before choosing one.
Tell your child to check his or her answers before turning in the test.
Do not schedule trips, dental or medical appointments or early pick -ups

We are happy to allow students to bring cell
phones to school. Many families feel it is a great way to stay in touch if
there is an emergency or if a student needs to call back and forth after
Sixth through eighth graders must turn off
and lock their phones in their lockers during the day.
If any younger students bring a cell phone, the
phone must be turned off and kept in the backpack during the school day.
If a student's cell phone rings, vibrates, or is
used during a normal school day, the phone will be sent to the principal's
office and may be retrieved by the student with his/her parent after
arrangements are made.
If this occurs a second time, the student may lose
the privilege of having the cell phone with him/her.
Thank you for supporting our cell phone policy

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.
Old Mission School Teachers are now Online and on Twitter!
OMS teachers now have individual wiki pages containing live twitter feeds with classroom updates.
Every teacher's wiki page will provide regular updates regarding homework assignments, class news, and important announcements.
