The student drop-off and pick-up procedures are explained on this page. Drop-off begins at 7am (the school day officially starts at 7:35am) and pick-up begins at 2:12pm once students are dismissed.
It is very busy at drop-off and pick-up time. Please be patient and cautious during these busy times.
The student drop-off/pick-up area inside the lot is in front of the building, along the curb with the yellow stripes. Vehicles on the school-side of Cushing Street can also drop off at the curb on that side of Cushing Street.
For morning drop-off, we ask that you pull your car all the way to the second crosswalk. The morning entrance for students is at the second crosswalk. As you enter this area, please drive carefully and be patient. There will be signs and OMS staff members in the parking lot to help direct the traffic in the morning.
Remember that students are able to be dropped off and enter the building as early as 7am. From 7 to 7:15am there is very little drop-off traffic, and we strongly encourage families to drop off at this time if possible.
The traffic is very heavy for afternoon pick-up, especially in the first few weeks of school before after school activities start. The dismissal bell rings at 2:12pm, but most students do not get outside until closer to 2:20pm. Most of the buses exit the front parking lot at around 2:22pm. Please keep this in mind as you plan for pick-up. We encourage families to use Cushing Street and, if needed, Simpson Street, for pick-up as there is limited space within the OMS lot.
There is no student drop-off or pick-up in the upper lot that we share with Stoughton High School. That lot is for SHS student and OMS staff parking only.
