Policies & Procedures


School attendance is mandatory everyday OIS is in session. A student will be considered “in attendance” if he/she is off campus formally representing the school while participating in a school-initiated activity. Students


Students are encouraged to arrive on time for school, at or just prior to 8:15. A tardy may be excused if a doctor’s note or other official documentation is provided. Excessive absences, tardiness, and early check-outs will be documented in the class register. A parent meeting is required with the principal on the fifth unlawful tardy before the student is admitted to class.


The children are expected to be in attendance the entire day to benefit from the educational environment. If it becomes necessary to check a child out, the parent or the person who has been designated will have to provide a written, signed notice of such. Excessive check-outs will be addressed by the principal or his/her designee. A parent must complete a form to designate who may check out his/her child. A person checking out a child must show to know the child and report to the office first before proceeding to the child’s class.


We invite parents to come to campus to eat with their children or take them out to lunch, but parents must come to the office first to sign out their child before taking them. Please ensure that your child is back on campus by the end of lunch as dictated by your child’s daily schedule. If you are coming to the school to eat with your child here, please enter through the office and inform the administration and classroom teacher that you will be staying for lunch.
