Ozark Tiger E-News

Registration to close Friday, May 15

The good news is we are offering Summer School this year. The bad news is parents don’t have as much time to sign up as in years’ past. In order to ensure we hire the appropriate amount of staffing for Summer School, online registration will close on Friday. If you plan to send your child to Summer School this year, please register on Parent Portal ASAP. Registration instructions, course descriptions and full information can be found at www.ozarktigers.org/summerschool. Any changes or registrations after May 15 must be done by calling your child’s school.

You may pick up your students' personal items May 21-22. This will also be the time to drop off library books, instruments, uniforms, along with elementary student Chromebooks. OMS, OJH and OHS students will keep their Chromebooks over the summer.


Families will remain in their cars. Teachers will deliver the bags to the car in order to say goodbye to students while observing proper social distancing.
