Steam Night Success!

Thank you to all the families who came out and supported Oster's STEAM night. We had a great turn out of families and community members who had the opportunity to explore and play through various stations around campus. A BIG thank you to Lisa Delapo, Director of Information and Instruction for Technology, Heather Koeszar, STEAM TOSA, and Will Ward, Marketspace Specialist, for organizing a great evening. And lastly, thank you to USD Superintendent Denise Coleman for supporting and visiting the festivities.

Safety Drills

Student and staff safety is of utmost importance, therefore, Oster has regularly scheduled monthly fire, and earthquake drills throughout the year. In addition, Thursday, March 5th at 8:30 am, we will hold our annual Run, Hide, Defend Drill with SJPD and retired Firefighter Gil Smith. Please note the campus will be closed during this drill. The purpose of our drills is to ensure that staff and students are well prepared for an actual emergency during school hours. The staff has gone through training and will be reviewing with students the steps to take in the event the school is placed in a lockdown.

In the event of an earthquake or fire, teachers and students will exit the building and congregate on the blacktop near the field. There are two things we require of parents in case of an emergency. One, follow the release procedures. Please first report to the student release area to sign your student out. You must not rush to your child and take him or her off-campus without anyone knowing. Two, please make sure your child's emergency contact information is current, voicemail is enabled, and your phone number is on file with the front office. Please note that Oster staff will not send a child home with a person who is not on their emergency contact list.
