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.
It was a great morning to be an Indian and attend the Versailles Math Competition. 15 out of 24 students (grades 4-8) received an individual medal. We also received several team awards. I greatly appreciate everyone who contributes to the character, education, and success of all of the math competition participants.
