    Garfield Elementary News

    Garfield's contruction is coming along! The newly-renovated building will look amazing when it opens for school Sept. 3. Due to construction, Garfield registration (for new students) is taking place at Jefferson Middle School, 2200 Conger Ave. NW, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. Construction has also impacted the school's phones. If you need to reach the school please call (360) 596-6900 and leave a message. Staff is checking messages and will get back to you promptly. We are excited for everyone to see the new and improved Garfield building when school starts!

    Ingersoll Stadium Public Access

    Last fall the school board approved Procedure 4260P(D), making changes to Ingersoll Stadium security. Part of that change involved additional locking of Ingersoll and the issuing of electronic key cards to community members and students so they may access the stadium for personal recreational use. For the safety and security of students and staff, the stadium is closed to public access, even with a key card, when an Olympia School District school is conducting classes, activities and/or athletic practices. For more information on Ingersoll security, including instructions for obtaining a key card, visit our Ingersoll web page. Please note:  Keys cards may be obtained Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to Noon.

    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!
