Greetings Odyssey Families,
I hope everyone has been enjoying nature’s beautiful and colorful fall show the past few weeks. I am writing to share some extremely important information about school choice for next year.
Open Enrollment for school choice in grades Kindergarten (K) - 9 at Odyssey has begun. The Open Enrollment period started at 8:00 am on November 2, 2015, and ends on January 13, 2016 at 4:00pm. Please know that these deadlines are final, and there are no exceptions. It is extremely important that families interested in exercising their option for school choice for next year get involved in the process now.
- Parents and Guardians interested in sending their children to Odyssey for the 2016-2017 school year must apply within the time frame listed above to be included in the school’s lottery.
- If you child has not attended a public or charter school in the State of Delaware, you must pre-register your child at their feeder school prior to being included in the OCS lottery.
- The siblings of current OCS students must also apply at this time to receive sibling preference in the lottery.
- Finally, current students do not need to reapply at this time. A form will be sent home in January 2016.
At the present time, Odyssey has scheduled eight Open House dates: three for the ninth grade and high school, three for the middle school, and two for the lower school grades. Listed below are our dates for Open House at OCS:
Please review our web site and the DOE site for further information about the Open Enrollment process. If you do not find the answers to your questions at either of these locations, feel free to contact me or our school counselors, Miss Kristin Nannas (LS), or Mrs. Barbara Berrick (US), for assistance.
