2020-21 Back to School Reopening Plan

2020-21 Back to School Reopening Plan

The last four months have brought many unexpected challenges to our District families and staff.  Our school closures in March were unprecedented, and our administrative team, staff, and families persevered through the difficulty of moving instruction to a remote learning environment.  While our students and staff were adapting to remote learning in Spring, our OASD Administrative team and School Board were working and planning for our Fall return to school.

 

OASD Fall 2020 Return to School Plan

On July 17, 2020, the OASD released the first edition of our Fall 2020 Return to School Plan.  This document will be updated continually as we navigate the return to school.  Many factors are out of our control and will remain that way for the 2020-21 school year.  We will continue to work with State, County, and local agencies to adapt our plans to the changing COVID-19 pandemic.

The District has provided a significant amount of information to OASD families over the last four months, by email, on the OASD website, in OHS blog updates, within virtual learning platforms, and on the District social media pages.  This information may have been overwhelming at times, but the OASD will continue to provide an abundance of information so that families and staff are informed of the District's work and the decision-making that affects our students, families, staff, and community.

OASD FAMILY UPDATES FOR Friday, JuLY 31, 2020
