Notice: Venue Change for the USD 504 September 13 Board Meeting
The regularly scheduled school board meeting on September 13, 2021, will be split into two parts and held in two locations.
This split meeting format is because the scheduled budget hearing must be held at the USD 504 board office as published. Following the conclusion of the budget hearing, the meeting will be recessed and moved to the OJSHS commons area, where there is more space to allow for social distancing.
The scheduled 2021-2022 School Year budget hearing will start at 7:00 pm, followed by a brief recess, and then resume at the OJSHS commons. If you have questions, please get in touch with the USD 504 board office at 620-795-2126.
Our final set of Sport Parent Meetings will be held on Monday evening at 6:30 at OJSHS. These final two meetings will be for parents of HS and JH Volleyball players.
A quick reminder that tomorrow afternoon is football equipment check-out and concussion video day for both JH and HS - HS at 1:00 and JH at 2:00.

Greetings, Oswego-Service Valley USD 504 Families:
Thank you for your continued support of the health and safety of our students and staff as we continue our planning to provide safe in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year.
We need to share with you today some recent clarification that we received from the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) which will require our compliance and adherence to an existing Order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This Order applies to all students who will be riding a school bus and requires that all students and all drivers wear masks over the mouth and nose while on the bus and while waiting indoors for the bus, which is known as a "transportation hub® in the CDC / HHS order.
The key term in the CDC/HHS Order that makes the masking requirement applicable to our school buses is the term "conveyances," which will not only include school buses but will also apply to other forms of school district-provided transportation such as activity buses, vans, SUVs, and/or cars.
We will ensure that our drivers have extra masks available should your child(ren) be without one. We appreciate your time in reviewing this information and your patience and understanding with continually evolving circumstances that require our compliance and adherence. Please know we will share any updates with you about this existing Order as we learn about them.
Be sure to check our school website to stay on top of Summer Activities Dates and Times. JH and HS Volleyball will begin Tuesday (6/1). Summer Weights begin Monday (6/7).

At approximately 1:00 pm this afternoon, April 22, the fire alarm at Oswego Junior-Senior High School sounded due to some maintenance work on the HVAC system. The alarm activated from the presence of smoke produced during the maintenance work. No fire was present, nor was also anyone injured. USD 504 conducts multiple drills throughout the school year for readiness in the event of fire, tornado, or crisis. All systems are back to their normal operational status.
Parent/teacher conferences scheduled for March 17th & 18th will once again be conducted via Zoom meeting as they were in the fall of this school year. In the upcoming days, please look for scheduling information to come from your child's teacher or building correspondence.
Oswego USD#504 schools will be closed on Monday, February 15 due to inclement weather.

USD 504 Oswego-Service Valley Storm Shelters
In light of the current COVID-19 Pandemic, we are concerned that there may be some confusion in regards to the school district's storm shelters. Please rest assured that even though the school buildings are currently closed to students and public, the shelters will remain open in the event of severe storms or tornados. However, we ask that you please be aware that all 3 shelters are opened by volunteers. When the alerts are broadcasted and sirens sound, the shelters will be open as soon as the volunteers are able to arrive on campus.
USO 504 has 3 storm shelter locations that are available to the public in the event of a severe storm or tornado during non-school hours of operation. During the school day, the shelters will be full of students and staff.
1. Neosho Heights Elementary (NeHi): 100 Oregon - Shelter is located on the northwest corner of the building. Look for the neon "OPEN" sign.
2. Oswego Jr.-Sr. High School (OJSHS): 1501 Tomahawk Trail - Shelter is located on the southwest corner of the building.
3. Service Valley Charter Academy (SVCA): 21102 Wallace Road - Shelter is located in the library building directly west of the main building.
