ENROLLMENT FORMS FOR THE 2018-19 SCHOOL YEAR were sent home last week. If you haven’t returned yours, another copy is in this folder. Please fill these out and return as soon as possible, as we place orders and make staffing decisions based on your response. If you know of any families who may have an interest in sending their child to OLOS School, please encourage them to contact the school office, or give us their contact information so that we may reach out to them.

DUE TO THE HIGH RISK OF FLU this year, and in our effort to contain transmission, any student exhibiting signs of the flu, which include, but is not limited to: fever, chills, nonproductive cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, muscle and body aches, headache and fatigue, and in some cases, vomiting & diarrhea, will be sent to the office and parents called for pick up. IF YOUR CHILD EXHIBITS ANY OF THESE SIGNS AT HOME – NO MATTER HOW MILD – PLEASE KEEP THEM HOME AS A PRECAUTION. If your child has the flu, doctors generally recommend that they do not return to school for one week.
