News & Notes
Throughout the school year Superintendent Dick Cvitanich and our Communications team put together a News & Notes feature with stories and photos of news items that recently took place throughout our district. This is a great way to get a peek into all the great events and activities going on in the schools. Take a peek at our News & Notes page!
Friends of the OSD
Once a month we send out our Friends of the OSD email to our email list. This is a monthly recap of news and events that took place throughout the District. This is a combination of materials from our Friday Updates, Facebook posts, as well as news fresh off the press!
