Omak High School's Main Office Hours:
Monday through Friday we are open for business from 7:30am - 3:30pm
Note: On early release days or PTS conference days the office hours may vary because there are times that our office staff will use those dates to attend in-service training, meetings or workshops being offered. Please feel free to call ahead to confirm office time or if you know you will need their assistance on those days, call ahead to arrange an appointment. Thank you.
Morning Bell, Morning School Business:
The warning bell rings each morning, allowing students 5 minutes when they arrive to school, to go to their lockers, and make it to their 1st class of the day ON TIME - Classes begin at 8:00am. Tardiness is not excused unless the student has a note from parent/guardian.(Follow this link provided to view our HS Daily Bell Schedules posted http://www.omaksd.wednet.edu/site/Default.aspx?PageID=849)
The daily warning bell rings at 7:55am. All attendance matters should be taken care of before the warning bell rings.
The office is open before school each day at 7:30am for our students to take care of attendance matters; turn in their excused absence notes to the attendance office, or pre-arranged notes for a future absence, or to pick up their off-campus pass for an appointment scheduled for any time that day, and to take care of any financial or other school office matters.
Students who come in after 7:55am run the risk of being tardy to their 1st period class. Please help to remind students to avoid tardies to 1st period, they should plan ahead and arrive to school earlier if they have to take care of their attendance matters in the office before the warning bell rings. Thank you
Helpful Attendance info:
Students who have been reported or marked absent that day and return to school later, should first check in at the main office immediately upon return for their re-admit slip. (even if the student returns during lunch break). If unsure, always check at the office first.
Students are required to bring a written note in order to get a Pre-arranged absence excused. Extended leave has to be approved by school administrator first. (The note must be turned into the attendance office prior to the 1st bell of the day). Students are given a homework assignment sheet to take around to their teachers to fill out for them. (Note; some teachers require the student make up the work upon return as the class may involve hands-on lab work, or class discussion or in-class only work, where their presence is required in the class or as a group to complete the work).
Homework - although encouraged to make-up upon return & to speak directly to his/her teacher....homework requests for absent students can be arranged by the students legal parent/guardian only either in person at the office or by calling into the attendance office, when reporting the absence, however we encourage you to log in first to Skyward Family access to see if ther are any missing assignments due or to see if the teacher has posted the assignment on their page for that day or week.
Homework can be obtained if the student qualifies; such as, when there is an excused absence for 2 or more days, a Pre-arranged Field Trip (parent permission form required on record), or is authorized by HS Admin. due to another school related reason.
