We Need Your Help!

Please make after-school/sibling/tutoring arrangements with your children before you drop them off at school each day.

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 dismisses.  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!

 

 



Operation Rice Bowl: Our Lenten Service Project

Operation Rice Bowl is the Lenten solidarity program of Catholic Relief Services.

We join in the traditional practices of Lent and pray as a community, fast in solidarity with those who are hungry all over the world, give concrete assistance to those most in need, while learn about the joys and challenges in the lives of our brothers and sisters around the world. The students are encouraged to bring their cardboard “rice bowls” to school each Friday for special tithing collections. The money contributed to tithing throughout Lent will be sent to Operation Rice Bowl to help families around the world with health, education, and microfinance projects.

Please encourage your children to contribute, and let your children see you being generous.

OMS Extended Care Policy

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