Student Safety is our top priority. Any parent/guardian/visitor wanting to enter the school must take the time to complete a background check through our schoolSAFEid system. You will need your driver's license to complete the background check. This process can now be done at each school site in Owasso. A visitor sticker must be worn each time the school is visited.
Arrival Time: K-5th grade students should not arrive before 8:30 A.M. Students may purchase breakfast in the cafeteria beginning at 8:30 A.M. Breakfast must be consumed inside the cafeteria and not taken outside.
All students arriving after 9:00 am must come through the front office for a tardy pass.
Absences: Please call the Hodson office between 8:00 and 9:45 each day a student is absent. You may leave a message after school hours. When a parent/guardian fails to notify the school of their child’s absence, the absence may be recorded as unexcused. The attendance number is 918-272-8161.
Tardiness: It is important for students to arrive at school on time. We encourage parents to have their child/children at school by 9:00 A.M.
