Dear OUSD Community,

It’s hard to believe that we are nearly halfway through this school year and almost into 2022. During this time of year, it’s especially important to pause and give thanks for all that we are grateful for. On behalf of our Board of Education and District leadership, I would like to extend our sincere gratitude to our students, staff, families, and community for your diligent efforts to help keep our schools safe.

We have made it through these challenging times by working together, and I thank you for your continued partnership, grace, and adaptability. I wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy the break!

Warmest Regards,
