A message from Mr. Miller: Each year, our school is required to conduct a “Lock-down Drill” with the participation of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. It is important to note that this drill does NOT include a simulation of gun fire in any form. Instead, the drill involves students and staff being placed in an area of the classroom away from windows with doors locked and lights turned off as law enforcement and school officials briefly tour the building. As parents, you have the option of having your child opt-out of this drill. Should you decide to implement this option, your child will be directed to an alternate classroom and a staff member will simply read the proper safety procedures to follow in the event of an actual lock-down situation. Should you decide to have your child “opt out” of this drill or if you have any questions please contact the school office prior to the week of Monday, September 20, 2021.

Lately schools in our area have been posting their supply lists on Facebook. We have not posted one because, again this year, we are providing school supplies for all of our Roadrunners. Your child will, however, need a backpack, gym shoes, headphones or earbuds, and a reusable water bottle. We will see you on Thursday!
Yesterday, the governor issued a mask mandate for Illinois schools. All OBR students and staff will "mask up" while inside the building and on buses to start this school year. We will make adjustments as guidance changes. We are looking forward to returning to our previous plan, which was to make masking optional. We will keep you posted.
OBR sports are in full swing! If your child is playing a sport this year, a current sports physical is REQUIRED to participate. They MAY NOT PRACTICE or PLAY until the physical has been completed. Questions? Call Nurse Terrie. Attached is 1 opportunity available in our area.
