mission statement

The Ojibwa Indian School will provide an educational program, which promotes the academic, spiritual, cultural, intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of students who reside on or near the Turtle Mountain Chippewa Reservation through effective discipline, implementation of high educational standards, continuous professional development, and strong parent and community involvement.

hours and attendance

School day 8:20 am to 3:10 pm

8:00 am to 4:30 pm (See Contact Us for more information.)

If a student arrives after 10:00 am they will be considered 1/2 day absent.  If a student departs before 2:30 pm they will be considered 1/2 day absent.  Arrival after 8:20 am and before 10:00 am is considered tardy.  Excuse forms or a written note should return to the classroom teacher following any absence and/or tardy.

For excused absences during the day, such as for doctor or dental appointments, students are expected to bring a written note from parents or a slip from a physician to explain their absence(s). A parent must pick up and sign out children in the school office. Also, if a child is returning to school from an appointment, he or she must sign in at the school office and obtain an admission slip.

All school work missed, regardless of absence status, is required to be made up by the student.  The student is allowed two days for make-up work for each absence.
