We are not where we want to be - yet - but despite the interruptions caused by COVID, we have improved our standings and scores due to the creation of a curriculum team and the hard work of our teachers during the most difficult time in recent history.

Dear OSSD Community,

In other good news:
The rules that permitted us to send home free school lunches during unexpected Covid shut downs have now expired, and the state has informed us that we are no longer required to offer free meals.
However, we continue to believe that a hungry student is not going to be focused on his/her/their studies, so our new Director of Food Services, Sarah Natvig, and her team have devised a creative way to continue this important and appreciated service.
While the RUHS and RTCC buildings are closed, the OSSD food service team will be preparing meals for students that can be picked up from 4:30 PM to 5:30PM.
All meals must be pre-ordered using the form that was emailed out on November 14. If you did not get the form, please contact Sarah at email@example.com.
Here are the details:
Pick up time for these meals is between 4:30pm - 5:30pm each day
Cut off time for ordering - 8:00 am the day pick up
We encourage all families to take advantage of this offering! These meals will not be funded by the Federal School Lunch program but are being offered courtesy of OSSD. We will also offer families the opportunity to purchase additional meals for convenience.
Thank you for your patience during this unexpected interruption!
