Girls Basketball vs Iberia

The Lady Indians were hoping to put the bad memory of the Hallsville game out of their mind and they did a great job of that against a much improved 7-4 Iberia team. The first quarter was the Sara Wolf show as she hit four three’s to lead our attack. As she would tell you, this was a team effort.

Girls Basketball vs Plato

This was the opening game in our pool of the Osage tournament. We were playing a Plato team that we don’t see very often. They didn’t have a ton of wins, but they are well coached and have played many close games against the best their conference has to offer.

Girls Basketball vs Hallsville

This game seemed very familiar, but not in a good way. On Friday our girls shot the ball extremely well against Buffalo and did just about everything right in the first half. The same thing happened in this game, but it was Hallsville that shot well and did most everything correctly.

Girls Basketball vs Buffalo

The Lady Indians hoped to continue their recent string of strong play when Buffalo came to town on Friday. Both teams came in 4-5 on the year and both have been playing much better after slow starts. To say that our girls came out firing on all cylinders would be an understatement.

Varsity Girls vs Linn, MO

For our first game in 19 days a much-improved Linn team came to Osage. We hoped to continue our hot shooting from the previous game, but after such a long layoff, you never know. We started a bit sluggishly and let their best player get some open looks. We were down 8-4 and took a timeout.

BOE & Teachers

Superintendent's Update for December 16th

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    In August, it seemed doubtful that we would make it through the semester without some type of building closure. Because of your support, patience, and extra-effort, we’ve made it the entire semester with all buildings AND classrooms open. This year has certainly been one for the record books. Like some of you, I am not going to be sad to see it take a bow and leave the stage.

Superintendent's Update for September 23rd

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    Last week, this update included a link requesting input on what you think is going well and what we can do to improve. We received approximately 30 responses. While this might not be indicative of the feelings of the entire Osage family, we think it is enough to call it a decent “temperature check.” (I know, too soon- but I couldn’t resist.)

Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-    It’s with great relief that we have moved from the challenge of getting schools open to keeping them open. But as you probably know too, planning for extra sanitation, extra mask use, and social distancing in theory feels really different from practicing them vigilantly for a real cause.

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 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.

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.
