Early Check-out

If you are planning to check your student out of school early for an appointment, family emergency, etc. please call our front office at 760.787.2400 and we will call your student to the office to meet you.

For student safety, students are only released early to parents/guardians. Your preauthorization is required to release your student to anyone else during a regular, non-emergency school day.

Independent Study
Independent Study

It is California Ed Code that we offer a Short-Term independent Study Contract when a student is, was, or will be, missing three or more consecutive days of class time as a way to ensure the student is getting the same opportunity and resources to complete the work, or make-up work. This also allows the school to get funded for the days the student was out, which goes towards the needs of the student, such as chrome books and drinking fountains, etc.

While your student is out on Independent Study, please have them complete their school work through Canvas and contact their teachers directly by email with questions.

**If your student will not be able to access Canvas while away, they will need to speak with each teacher, before leaving, to arrange for paperwork.

***Students may also request a HOTSPOT from our Library Technician.

Email completed forms to Attendance Technician, Traci Middleton at or turn in to the OPMS front office. For more information please call 760-787-2452.
