Tardies and Absences
Parents need to make every effort possible to have students at their classroom door when the first bell rings at 7:34am; classes officially begin at 7:40am each day. Students who are not in their classroom when school begins are required to check in at the school office to sign the tardy log. By law, our attendance records have to be accurate as they are the basis of our funding. If your child is absent, please call the office or leave a message at (805) 640-4343 x. 2070 on the morning of the absence. By law, all absences must be accounted for and recorded. Regular attendance is essential for a student's maximum achievement.
Applications for free or reduced lunch are available in the office or by clicking here. Online registration is available by clicking here. Please return the application to the main office Students on a reduced lunch program will pay just $.40 for a school lunch.
Bicycle and Parking Lot Safety
Please use the "drive-through" near the F-building for student drop-off and pick-up, but in the afternoon, please make arrangements in other locations as well (near the football stadium, in the loading zone on Maricopa Highway, or wait 10-15 minutes after school ends). The "drive-through" area backs up quickly in the afternoon. Students on bicycles should walk their bikes once they reach school grounds. Bike racks are located near the cafeteria. Skateboarding, riding scooters, and bicycling are not allowed on campus at any hour.
Common sense is the key in dressing for school. Please dress modestly. Hats should not be worn during class, and pants must be worn at the waist. No profane, drug or alcohol-related, or gang-related logos or verbiage on clothing are allowed.
Making sure that a school is a safe place for everyone is something that we take seriously. Reporting bully behavior is a critical step in addressing this problem. The Ojai Unified School District Harassment / Bullying Complaint Form may be submitted by anyone being harassed/bullied or who has witnessed someone else being harassed/bullied. It is to be turned in to the school office or principal. Please call Nordhoff Principal Dave Monson if you have any questions or concerns.at (805) 640-4343.
