Weekly Updates & News

OASD FAMILY UPDATES FOR Friday, June 26, 2020

New Updates

OASD School Board Special Workshop on Fall 2020-21 Planning: June 30

The OASD School Board and Administration have been working together for several months to plan for school in the fall.  Our priorities are to provide the best learning situation in the safest manner possible and do so in a way that responds to the varied needs and desires of our school community. 

Thank you to the OASD families and staff who completed the fall preference survey between June 12-19.  The School Board and Administration discussed the results of those surveys, the current state and county health guidelines, and recommendations released by the Department of Public Instruction at their June 16 and June 22 meetings. 

At their June 20 meeting, the Board agreed that additional planning time and discussion was needed around student return to school in fall.  As a result, the Board and Administration will continue to discuss the fall 2020 return scenarios and survey results at a Special Board Workshop on June 30. 

  Join Us – You Can Watch the June 30 Board Workshop  
OASD Families and the Community can watch the June 30 Board Workshop live online.  Please join us at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30 by clicking this link.

In early July, please look for an email outlining the OASD plans for fall and opportunities to join us at community presentations where families can learn more about returning to school.


Online Registration for the 2020-21 School Year

To be ready for school in the fall, we need to hold online registration while also making plans to return to school safely.  In early July, we will email additional information about the Online Registration process, health information, student fee payment, registration assistance, athletic registration, our technology plan, and more.

Please check your email in early July because the online registration process will have several new steps this year, including the opportunity to update your child’s immunization records and health conditions through Skyward Family Access.
