Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the 2108-2019 School Year at Ombudsman Metro!
I am excited to see all of our new and returning students on August 15th, 2018. I invite you to be a collaborative partner in the education of all our students. Let’s work together and make this a successful school year.
We hope to see you at our Back To School Bash on August 9th, 2018, from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM. There will be a lot of information, fun prizes, and snacks. You will also have an opportunity to meet the staff and ask questions.
At Ombudsman Metro, we are committed to providing students multiple learning opportunities that will meet state expectations and their individual needs. We also focus on developing students’ character traits and preparing them for the future.
To help us make the 2018-2019 school year a smooth one, please review the following information carefully. We have some new policies that we want everyone to be aware of.
Monday through Friday
7:30 AM to 11:30 AM
12:15 PM-4:15 PM
Timely attendance is mandatory. We want our students to be present and take advantage of all the learning opportunities we offer. If a student is out ill, please contact our attendance line at 1-844-350-2644 to excuse the absence.
Cell phone use is not allowed on our campus. They will be collected at the beginning of the school day and returned at the end of the school day. We need our students to be free of distractions and engaged in their learning.
BACKPACKS ARE NOT ALLOWED
Backpacks are not allowed on campus. If a student needs to bring one for emergency reasons, it must be clear, it will be searched and collected at the front desk.
FOOD AND DRINKS
Food and drinks are not allowed in the classrooms. If a student did not get a chance to eat before coming to school, he/she will be allowed to bring something to campus and take a couple of minutes to eat before entering the classroom. Students are not allowed to come into school with any outside drinks. Student will not need a water bottle because water will be provided at school.
SEARCHING OF PERSONAL PROPERTY
To protect the safety of our campus, staff will conduct random searches throughout the year. Please ensure that students do not bring any illegal items to school, since we report all crimes to Glendale PD and this can result in both school and legal consequences.
ZERO TOLERANCE POLICIES
- ZERO weapons
- ZERO drugs
- ZERO violence
- ZERO bullying
Students violating our Zero Tolerance policies will not be allowed to remain on our campus.
As a principal, it is my responsibility to provide a safe and productive work environment for students, therefore no exceptions will be made to our school policies and procedures. I assure you that I and all school staff will work hard to ensure the safety and academic success of all students.
Thank you for trusting Ombudsman Metro with the education of your students.
If you have any question, please contact us at 623-842-6157.
Lupita Ingram, M.Ed.
Principal of Ombudsman Metro
