Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-
 
As we near the end of this school year, our team is exceptionally grateful for the kindness, compassion and moments of grace you have shared with us- especially over this past week. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you or your student bring this school year to a successful conclusion. There is a lot of information contained in this update, and there will be more next week. Don’t hesitate to reach out with questions.

  • Osage High School will host graduation on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at the stadium beginning at 7:00 pm. Senior parents, click here for more information.

  • It is that time of year to return school iPads. Here you will find the information for elementary and secondary students' device turn-in times. Grades K-5: As of Tuesday, May 17, all iPads in grades K-5 will begin staying at school. These devices will be collected and inventoried in their respective home rooms and stay at school over the summer. Grades 6-12: iPads in grades 6-12 will be collected on the last two days of school (May 26-27). We are offering the option for students in grades 6-12 to keep their iPads at home over the summer. Parents must request this. Look for an email from your building including a form for you to request a summer iPad checkout for your child. We will consider the device covered by the same insurance that it was covered by during this school year.  Please note: We are not collecting student iPad charging cables and blocks this year; those may remain at home over the summer.
