When there are delays in starting school or closures in other school districts due to weather, OSD is still in session. This is because we have a residential component and many students are already on campus. We honor the start times and closures of other districts; however, and want our day students to remain at home if necessary.
Please call OSD (phone: 503-378-3825 or videophone: 503-400-6180) to have your student's absence excused if your student stays home. Our most important consideration is your student's and family's safety. Please do not bring your students in if there are any concerns about weather. We will help your student catch up when s/he returns to school.
Please remember to contact your individual school district's transportation office to let them know not to come pick up your student if your student stays home or you drive your student to school.
