Extended Care is available from 3:10pm – 5:30pm for K5-6th grade students. Snack is provided to students remaining after 4:00pm.

Students who are not picked up by the end of dismissal (3:10) will be checked in to Extended Care and will be charged the flat rate of $6. Parents may also choose Extended Care as an optional service.

Parents are strongly encouraged to write a note in the student agenda or email the teacher before 1:30pm when a dismissal change is necessary.

Extended Care ends promptly at 5:30pm. Students must be picked up by an authorized contact person on file before 5:30pm to avoid additional charges. These automatic charges include a flat fee of $25 plus $2 per minute beyond 5:30pm.

School lunches on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are $5 per meal, nutritionally balanced, made daily, and include a bottled water.

On Friday, pepperoni or cheese pizza is $1.50 per slice. Water and Popsicle may be ordered for $0.50 each. Additionally, fresh fruit cups for $1.25 and fruit/yogurt parfaits for $1.75 are available. 

Lunches are ordered via the Praxi Portal up to two days in advance. Students who do not have a lunch sent to school by 9:30am will receive a cafeteria lunch and their account will be charged accordingly.

OCA will not provide snacks during the school day. Snacks and meals brought from home or delivered by a parent (by 9:30am) are encouraged to be healthful. Please see the handbook for restrictions.

If you know in advance that you will be signing your child out early, please notify the Teacher by writing a note and submitting it before 9:00am on the day of early checkout.

If a situation arises during the school day, and the student needs to be checked out early, OCA asks that he or she be picked up before 2:00pm. This 2:00 deadline includes students who need to be checked out early due to a sporting event.

Any student who is checked out before 11:15am will be considered absent for the entire school day. See more about absences and early checkouts in the Parent/Student Handbook.
