Safe Schools Alert
Safety is our top priority. SafeSchools Alert is a reporting system that allows students, staff, and parents to submit concerns to our administration in four different ways; phone, text, email or via the web. Anyone may easily report on bullying, harassment, alcohol/other drugs, vandalism or safety concerns through the SafeSchools Alert process. Tips may be submitted anonymously.
If you have questions, contact your school principal or the District Compliance Officer, Jeff Carpenter at (360) 596-8544.
Ways of keeping up with us
In January of 2012 the OSD joined the Facebook community. Since that time we have made it a priority to update our Facebook page on a daily basis with news and events taking place in our District. Whether it's information on upcoming theatrical performances taking place in our District, to links to local news articles featuring schools or students in our District, we make it a point to post it all on our page. Please take a second to browse our Facebook page, and if you like what you see you can 'like us' to receive automatic updates: www.facebook.com/OlympiaSchoolDistrict.
Similar to our Facebook page, our Twitter account is available with daily District updates. Our Twitter account is tied to our Facebook account so that any postings we make on Facebook are automatically posted on Twitter so you won't miss a thing! Take a look at our Twitter page and if you like what you see you can 'follow us' to receive all of our tweets: www.twitter.com/OlympiaSchools.
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!
If you have something you’d like to see added, send the information to Conor Schober and we’ll work to get it posted to this page.
