Message from the Admin Staff

Hello OLA Families,

As you you have heard we received the news this week that OLA will be closed after the end of this school year. We are all very sad about this. The staff is still processing as we assume you all are. We know that you have many questions about the processes for enrolling in school for fall 2023 and we will be posting answers to those questions on our website as soon as possible. We know that answers will help and we know the District is working on a plan to get those for you.

Please know that your children, our students, are the highest priority to all of us. The staff is spending lots of time listening to how they feel, validating their feelings and comforting them the best they can. We will continue to provide that level of compassion and care, while also providing a high-level quality education for all of our students. That is what makes OLA so special.

At this time if you have any specific questions or comments for the school admin team you can email us at If you want to reach the District office you can email them at Thank you all for supporting this amazing school.

Diane and Shannon

Principal, OLA & VS and Asst. Principal OLA
