Inclement Weather Reminder
As we approach the winter weather season, there is an increased possibility for school cancelations and/or delays due to weather conditions. We will communicate school closures via the Campus Portal email system, the OSD website, social media, and news outlets. Visit OregonSD.org/weather for details on inclement weather practices and for instructions on updating your message alert preferences.

The Department of Justice Office of School Safety in Wisconsin has created a SPEAK UP, SPEAK OUT (SUSO), a 24/7 confidential resource center for reporting school safety concerns. Visit OregonSD.org/safety for more information on school safety.
