All-School News

As this school year comes to a close, in a way that no one could have anticipated, we want you to know how grateful we are that you are part of the OCS community. Thank you for making OCS such a special place.

As we head into summer, and eagerly anticipate returning to campus in the fall, we want to let you know that we will be working diligently through the summer to make preparations for a safe return to OCS. We will continue monitoring recommendations related to COVID-19 and make decisions accordingly. As any significant decisions are made, we will provide you with those updates. It is our intention to have students in a classroom with their teacher as much as possible, and we will do everything in our power to provide a clean, safe environment for them to learn. All decisions will be made with the safety of our students in mind, and we will be prepared to provide an exceptional, Christ-centered education to our students for the 2020-2021 school year.

Though the end of the 2019-2020 school year doesn’t look like it usually does, it is our desire to provide closure to students and teachers, and celebrate another great year at OCS. Please see the information below regarding end-of-year plans for each division and important information as we head into summer.

Summer Camps
As our academic school year winds down, we know you are excited about summer camps! A final decision will be made on all summer camp dates at the end of next week as we continue to monitor recommendations regarding COVID-19.  We will send a school-wide announcement as soon as a final decision has been made. Please know that we will be doing everything possible to provide a clean, safe environment for your child, if and when we are able to move forward with summer camps. Please check your email for additional information next week.
