Special Announcement

Greetings from Oswego-Service Valley USD 504 to you and your family!

We wanted to take a moment to say “Hello!” We miss you when you are not here, and we are looking forward to the start of the 2021-2022 school year.

We hope to visit with you soon to see if you are needing anything from us or if we can assist you in any way. Starting Monday, August 2, 2021, the building principals and secretaries will be back on duty full-time. If there is anything you need, please call your child's attendance center (Neosho Heights Elementary 620-795-4541, OJSHS 620-795-2125, or SVCA 620-421-3449). Enrollment is scheduled for Thursday, August 5, 2021 from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm at each attendance center. The Early Childhood Development Center’s enrollment is scheduled for Wednesday, August 4, 2021 from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm (620-795-2792).

Our plans for the 2021-2022 school year are coming together, and we are excited for and very much looking forward to the first day of school on Thursday, August 19, 2021. In continued partnership with our Oswego-Service Valley USD 504 students, staff, and families, we will continue to focus on several areas during this upcoming school year.

  • Social and Emotional Supports: We know that establishing and continuing to strengthen our trusting relationships with students and families is a critical and foundational step to helping our students learn. We will continue to be mindful of and act upon the social and emotional needs of students, staff, and families.

  • Attendance and Engagement: We will continue to be committed to working closely with students and families, and we want our schools to continue to be places where students and staff have fun, thrive, and look forward to learning each day.

  • Communication with Families: We enjoy sharing our successes with families, and we want to hear from you as well regarding your thoughts about successes and challenges. 

  • Curriculum and Instruction: We will continue to plan fun and exciting instruction for each subject area using Kansas Standards. Working together as partners, we can absolutely minimize and/or eliminate any negative impact that the pandemic may have had on student learning.

  • Evaluation of Learning: We will continue to gather reasonable amounts of data and information about your child(ren) through observations, questioning techniques, and discussions, along with more formal assessments or tests. Combined, this information will continue to tell us what your child(ren) knows and is able to do as well as how much they are growing and achieving.

On behalf of Oswego-Service Valley USD 504, we miss you and we look forward to seeing you soon. Please continue to have a great summer and please let us know if there is anything that you need or if you have any questions.
