Last Day of School - Wednesday, May 26th

It is hard to believe that the end of our 2020-2021 school year is coming to an end! The last day of school is Wednesday, May 26th. All students and staff are encouraged to dress up in 1980’s clothing on that day.

At 11:00 AM that day, our 5th grade families will start our last carpool with a decorated car parade that will take them through carline for the last time and proceed to the upper campus. 5th grade families may meet in the empty side of the Holy Trinity Greek Church parking lot, closest to our OCS gate to decorate their vehicles. Regular carpool will then begin at 11:15 AM. There will be NO aftercare that day. Carpool will conclude at 11:45 AM and all students will need to be picked up by this time so that faculty and staff may attend an off campus, end of year, gathering. Have a fun and safe summer!
