Pickup of schoolwork
Remember that pickup of school work resumes today from 9:00am - 12:00pm and from 5:00pm - 6:00pm.
Hot Lunch
Thank you to all of the families who participated with the hot/cold lunch through the OCCS the last few weeks.  Unfortunately we are no longer going to be putting meals together.   We apologize for the change of plans. All our students can still get meals through the public school at this time. Please check out the MOC program! This is a great way to get free lunches for your children!  
The Spotlight newsletter for February and March is available to read online. You can find it on the website under 'News & Info', then 'Spotlight'. You can also use the attached link to find it: OCCS Spotlight
From the counselors
As our at-home hours continue, perhaps your children are struggling with big emotions and behaviors. Big feelings are normal for many of us right now, but if you find that your kids are "stuck", please reach out for support. Ms. Smidt and Mrs. Michelle can be contacted by email or phone. Also, on the Online Learning Portal web page, there is a link with local counseling resources as well as 24 hr/day, 7 days/wk hotline numbers. May you feel the blessings of a supportive community!

Library Books
We have a way to order books from the library! Use the attached link to submit a request:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1PL6mRVW2-W3INXOcltFSaPfK1rHGyPifRFgw29ZC_Dk/edit?edit_requested=true    

The books will be available for pickup at school on Monday when the regular pickup/drop off of school work takes place. You may also return books to the library at the same time. Books will be quarantined for a time before being distributed again.
Dordt Girls Basketball Camp

Pop Can Trailer
At this time, we will stop the collection of cans/bottles and will be putting the trailer away as long as we feel it is necessary.
