Principals' Update

Ogden Preparatory Academy - 23 May 2023

Thank you!

Each school year we are able to reflect and look back on the past year. We have learned a lot through good times and bad. Thank you all for being such a great part of our very large OPA community. This community is a very diverse, fun, and passionate group and each of you has a part in making it what it is. Thank you for trusting us with your students each day. We take pride in what we do and will continue to support your students to find happiness and success. Have a safe summer. We look forward to seeing everyone again in August!

OPA After Hours

*There will be no after-school program on Thursday and Friday!

Dear Parents,

The enrollment process for the 2023-2024 after-school program is now open! It will be the same as in the past. Each family will need to fill out an application and return it to the elementary office. An application is required even if students are enrolled this year. The application is attached to this email and will also be available in the elementary office. Please turn it in as soon as possible!

For the last couple of years, OPA received emergency COVID funds that covered the costs of the program and allowed it to be free for families. Those funds are no longer available, so it will be $200 per month for each student. Families that qualify for childcare assistance can apply with the Department of Workforce Services to help cover the cost. Click on the link to apply on the DWS website.
