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.
