Meet Mrs. Taylor!
This year we are pleased to announce that Taylor Crokie will be joining the Residential Administrative Team. Taylor will serve our department as the 2nd shift or evening Youth Leader Supervisor.
Mrs. Taylor may already be recognized by many students and parents as she has been a Youth Leader with OSSB for 4 years now.
Some of Taylor's hobbies include fishing, kayaking, taking walks with her dogs and spending time with her family.
Taylor looks forward to beginning the new school year and reconnecting with students and staff in the Residential Program.
Welcome, Mrs. Taylor!
Move In Ready!
All students must first report to Student Health Services upon arrival. The nursing team will greet students for check in at the front lobby of the academic building.
Upon leaving check in with the Student Health Services (SHS) team, students may travel to their assigned dorms where they will be greeted by their Youth Leaders. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for both student and staff safety, parents and transportation drivers may not enter the dormitories at this time.
Personal items within student luggage must be heat treated upon entering the dorm. Staff will help students with heat treating and setting up and organizing their assigned bedroom. We strongly recommend packing electronics and toiletries in a separate bag so it can easily be removed from your child's luggage; these items will not be heat treated.
Dinner will be provided in the dorm at 5 pm. We encourage everyone to arrive between 4 pm and 8 pm. If circumstances prevent you from doing this, please communicate with your dorm Youth Leaders or the Residential Youth Leader Supervisor.
We have provided a packing list (see the attachment below) of essential items. We are asking that students limit the amount of personal items that they bring this year due to the intense cleaning and disinfecting that will be occurring on a daily basis. This includes games, toys and room decorations.
