    WE NEED YOU AS A TESTING VOLUNTEER
    Statewide testing will take place April 25 - May 6. We need parents and community members to volunteer to be test monitors, even if you can only volunteer one day. Please call the school office at 601.264.4634, or contact your child's homeroom teacher, if you are interested. Thank you in advance for your help.
     
    No Devices  
    NO DEVICES ALLOWED
    The MS Dept. of Education strictly prohibits cell phones during state testing. Students will be required to turn in their cell phone to their classroom teacher and the phone will be kept in the office until testing is over and then returned to the student.  To avoid testing violations, we are encouraging students to leave their cell phone or any other electronic device (including Apple watches, FitBits, etc.) at home on the days their classes are testing.

IMPORTANT ATTENDANCE POLICY LEGISLATION:
The Mississippi Legislature passed a law (HB1530) in the past legislative session which requires all Mississippi public school students to be present for 63% of the day to be counted present for that day. This law took effect July 1, 2013.  This is 63% of the instructional day which means that it does not count lunch, breaks, etc...At OGMS, our school day begins at 8:25; therefore, a student must be present until 2:05 each school day to meet the 63% requirement
