OCCS School Closing text message service
We will be using OCCS’s School Closing text message service again this year. If you supplied us a cell phone number during the online registration process and selected the 'SMS (Text Message)' box, you will receive texts on any school closings and other important messages.
Doors Locked
All doors to the OCCS building are locked during the school day. There is a buzz-in system at the front office entrance. Push the button on the west wall and face the camera until the door is released. Office personnel will unlock the door to allow you in. You will be allowed to enter the office, but guests will not be allowed the rest of the building.
Sign-In and Sign-Out Process
We ask students to sign in and out at the office if they come late to school, have to leave early, or are gone for a period of time throughout the day for appointments or for other reasons. Accurate absences and time away from school needs to be recorded. Parents, please inform your children that they need to stop by the office whenever they come to school late or leave early. 
Absences
If your child will be absent for appointments, sickness, or other reasons, please let the school know about it. Parents must verify an absence by calling the school office (737-2274) or email us before 9:00am (office@occhristian.pvt.k12.ia.us).  If you know in advance, parents should send a note/e-mail to the teacher and the office. A student telling the teacher is not acceptable, please send a NOTE, CALL or EMAIL for all absences.
