Dear Families-

We hope this website will provide you with information and communication to help your student be successful at O'Keeffe Middle School.

The big news is Professional Collaboration Time for staff and teachers across the district. Students will be released most MONDAYS at 1:47 pm. 

Another important issue at O'Keeffe and Marquette is traffic safety. Please take a moment to review the safest traffic patterns for mornings and afternoons.    Traffic Considerations.


Communication between students, families, school and staff is a major goal for O'Keeffe this year. Please contact us with suggestions or feedback on how we can better facilitate information exchange between all the important people in our school community.
