     To our OMS 5th Grade Academy Families:


Thank you for taking time from your busy schedules to join us for our 5th grade “meet & greet”. We had 98% of our 5th grade academy families attend.


While the weather outside was uncooperative and a bit unpredictable, the climate inside our amazing historic East Wing gym was sunny and warm. It was wonderful to hear from many parents, grandparents and family members that you have such fond memories of the East Wing. We look forward to making many happy memories during our 2020/21 school year.


Our teachers and staff are ready and excited to see you on Zoom Monday morning. Make sure your chromebook (or other device) is charged up and ready - then join the zoom meeting with the link your teacher provided in your packet or via email. Login and join at 8:45. Your teacher will let you in from the waiting room by 8:50 am. Call 541-952-1061 if you have trouble joining the zoom meeting.


We will do our best to make sure everyone is in the meeting. If for some reason you are unable to join, remember we are all learning during these first few days. Likely it is a technical “glitch” we can work together to solve. 


Please do your best by having a designated learning space with a chair, a background that is appropriate for school and clothes you feel comfortable in that meet the dress code standards for our district.


Stay safe!

We will have a tent set up to welcome you!

There will be staff available to guide you.
