Reminders from OMMS Principal about Drop-off
To ensure the safety and well-being of all students and staff members, I'd like to remind everyone of a few crucial guidelines regarding arrival procedures at Oakland Mills Middle School.
Drop-off on Santiago Road: Please refrain from stopping, pulling over, or dropping off your students directly on Santiago Road.
This measure is in place to prioritize safety and aligns with traffic regulations.
Interfaith Center Drop-off: Parents and guardians should aim to arrive at 7:40 am. All vehicles must use the drop-off loop at
the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center on Santiago Road. Follow the guidance of staff members at the entrance who will guide you
through the drop-off process.
Drop-off Lane Guidelines: When entering the designated drop-off lane, please proceed slowly and adhere to the instructions
provided by OMMS staff members present. Remember that only entry into the Interfaith Center from Santiago Road is allowed.
Safety First: We kindly request that you do not drop your student off on Santiago Road, even if there's no traffic behind you.
This precaution is in line with our commitment to safety.
Car Riders with Disabilities: Families with students who have disabilities are encouraged to reach out to Ms. Coleman. She will provide access to the bus loop to accommodate specific needs 410 313-6937.
Late Arrivals: If your student arrives after 8:00 am, please utilize the OMMS bus loop. Your student should check in at the front office for a late pass before proceeding to class.
Bus Riders: The four HCPSS endorsed buses will enter the school’s bus loop. Access to the school’s bus loop will be restricted during daily arrival. OMMS staff will assist your students upon their arrival.
We understand that the morning routine can be rushed, but it's imperative that we prioritize the safety of our students and staff during drop-off. These procedures are designed to make the process efficient and secure. Kindly note that we may make adjustments to these procedures as necessary to enhance student safety continuously.
Once again, I extend my sincere gratitude to each one of you for your cooperation and commitment to a safe and successful school environment. Your support makes a significant difference in the overall well-being of our OMMS community. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
