Dear Osage Students, Families, and Community-


We know there are many questions at this time about what it means to have the schools close unexpectedly in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We certainly don’t have all the answers, but we do have a few that may be of interest to you. We are committed to answering what we can to the best of our ability.  We will keep these FAQs on our website and will update them frequently.


Thank you for your patience and support.

Raising Excellence: Superintendent's Update

March 16, 2020

Dear Osage Families and Community,


At a special Board of Education meeting tonight, we made the difficult decision to close school beginning Monday, March 23, due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic impacting the region. We made this decision in consultation with county health officials in order to ensure the health, safety and well-being of our students and staff and to do our part in trying to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 throughout the Lake region.
