  • PD Days-No School

    New this year!

    OUSD will be holding Professional Development days for staff.  Rather than minimum days scattered throughout the year, we will have 3 designated Mondays when students do not attend school, but the staff will still be hard at work.  Please note the days and make arrangements for your students.  Thank you.
