We need to know that each student that is not at school is being cared for by you or your day care provider.  We appreciate your cooperation in helping us protect our children. We are required to keep accurate daily attendance record on each student who attends OPMS.   
Our school day begins at 7:50 a.m.  All OPMS students are expected to be in their seats before the tardy bell rings.  Tardies will result in lowering of citizenship grades, lunch intervention or CHOICES assignments.  Students who develop a pattern of continued unexcused tardies or absences may be referred to RUSD’s SARB (School Attendance Review Board).
