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
