Community Update 5/6 (Day 33) 
Dear School of the Osage Students, Families, and Community-
I am pleased to share with you below an overview of our summer 2020 academic and athletic opportunities. We are grateful for the input you provided to help us define priorities and create options to address a variety of needs. I recognize this is a lot of information, and we will be sharing it with even more details on our website and social media starting next week. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have questions. 

Summer Academic Opportunities (grades 1-12)
Online Summer Classes via LAUNCH
