Dear Parents-

It has been an exciting couple of weeks on campus as we finalize lessons, lunches, bus routes, schedules and trainings. The Board of Education has clocked serious time; staff has been here early and late- bulletin boarding, administering, mowing, and safety checking. The energy is excellent and laser-focused on the support of Osage students.

Moving into this new year, our theme, ENDURANCE, speaks directly to this focus. The past couple of years have been filled with uncertainty and change in so many sectors, including education. Please know we are fully committed to our continued pursuit of stability and excellence in safe and secure learning environments. Endurance- the Osage Way- is all about working hard, growing in skill, creating important solutions, and thriving in the face of challenges- all while remembering to have fun. And yes, this takes grit, persistence and dedication. Our entire staff is dedicated to partnering with you to help ensure students establish endurance- the Osage Way.

We are thrilled to welcome students back on Tuesday! In the meantime, I suspect you too, are busy wrapping up final back to school preparation. Do not hesitate to reach out if I can be of assistance. As superintendent, it is my honor to serve you, and I truly cannot wait for the adventure of the 2022-2023 academic year.

Please join me and over 30 Lake Area Chamber of Commerce business partners- cheering on our Indians at the annual LACC Community Night, August 26. It’s going to be a fun start to a wonderful year.


All In,
Dr. Laura Nelson
