In the last four months, we have had only one family report to us that their children had head lice. While lice seem to be an ongoing concern within the community, they are not currently a problem at school. An informative and fun way to review the facts about head lice with your children can be found on www.brainpopjr.com. In the search box in the upper right-hand corner, type lice.

The 2014 Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) will be administered to all 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students beginning Monday, March 3, 2014 through Friday, March 14, 2014. The ISAT measures individual student achievement relative to the Illinois Learning Standards. The following are a few actions you can take as a parent to ensure a positive testing situation for your child:
- Make sure your child attends school on the days of testing, unless he/she is ill. This minimizes the need for make-up exams or disruption to the regular school day. Your child is most comfortable testing with his/her class. The State requires all students to complete all sections of the assessment.
- Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep the night before testing.
- Make sure your child eats a good breakfast on the morning of each test day.
- Make an effort to help your child feel relaxed. Adhering to a schedule that allows plenty of time for daily routines helps your child not to feel rushed.
- Remind your child to read the test directions carefully and ask questions of teachers if the directions are unclear.
- Encourage your child to double-check and triple-check his/her work; use paper and pencil to show the work in mathematics.
- Give your child words of encouragement to let him/her know that you have confidence in his/her ability to do his/her best!
The following is the OMS ISAT testing schedule:
