Yes, we want you to relax and enjoy your summer, but don't let your children become victim to the "Summer Slide." Young learners can lose skills over the summer and those losses can accumulate over the years. We expect our Ojus Superstars to shine bright all summer long. Each grade level has homework assignments for students going into that grade in the 2016-2017 school year. Parents, please read with your children and do other fun educational activities. Please also assist your children with homework assignments as follows: (All links are for incoming classes.) First Grade: Second Grade; Third Grade; Fourth Grade; Fifth Grade.
Kindergarten and First Grade = 8:20am - 1:50pm - Mondays - Fridays
Second through Fifth Grades = 8:35am - 3:05pm - (Wednesday, early release at 1:50pm)
School personnel cannot undertake the responsibility of supervising students before and after school. It is the responsibility of parents and guardians to arrange for the care of children before and after school.
