REMOTE LEARNING DAY #2 for Thursday, February 18, 2021. It is still unsafe to run our bus routes. Neosho Heights students will follow the same procedures as today. They have the supplies needed for Thursday. Principals and secretaries will report to school tomorrow, so if you have questions you can contact the school at 795-4541. Please note, we will not serve meals on Thursday. When we know about Friday, we will get that information out to you. Stay safe and warm!
Good afternoon NeHi family. This is your principal Mr. Gilpin. As you have already heard we will be having a remote learning day tomorrow Wednesday, February 17th. This day will look slightly different for every grade level. Therefore, your teachers will be reaching out to you if they have not done so already to explain what this day will look like. We worked Friday to make sure your students had the necessary materials for the lessons planned. If your child did not bring an iPad or Chromebook home, they will not need it for the remote learning day. Your teachers will communicate using the platforms they typically have used to conduct whole class communication. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to your teachers or myself. I will be in the office tomorrow, please do not hesitate to call.
Oswego USD 504 will have a REMOTE LEARNING DAY on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. Due to the inclement weather & extremely cold temperatures, we cannot run school bus routes Wednesday. It is simply not worth the risk, as the diesel buses may gell-up & stall-out, thus stranding students between home & school. Neosho Heights teachers sent home supplies needed on Friday. Students either have their electric device or remote learning packets. Principals and secretaries will report to school tomorrow, so if you have questions you can contact the school at 795-4541. Please note, we will NOT serve meals on Wednesday. As soon as a decision is made about Thursday, we will let you know. Stay safe and warm!
Oswego Schools will be closed on Tuesday, February 16th due to inclement weather. This will be a SNOW DAY. This will NOT a remote learning day. Stay safe and warm!
Monday, February 15th has been declared a snow/ice/extreme temperatures day. We will NOT have school on Monday. We hope this gives families time to prepare and make arrangements. We are sending home student devices and supplies needed IN CASE we need to go to remote learning for part of the week. We do not know what the weather will do for sure. We do not know if we will need them, but would rather be prepared. Monday WILL NOT be a remote learning day. It is a regular snow day. If we are out multiple days, they could potentially be snow days, or the district may decide to move to remote learning. When we know more information about the rest of the week, we will communicate that with you as soon as possible. Stay safe and stay warm!
The Neosho Heights PTO Popcornoplis Fundraiser will end Friday, February 12th. We have heard AMAZING reviews from people that have bought and received their orders already! In order to keep our students safe and respect social distancing, you can order and pay online through the link below. Shipping is free!! Our school receives 50% of the profit from this fundraiser. That’s a great deal! We have not met our goal yet, so we would appreciate any support. Please help us raise money for our students and classrooms this year and get some delicious popcorn in return! 🍿 https://fundraising.popcornopolis.com/pages/usd-504-oswego
We will be pushing spring pictures back until February 26th due to weather. We will send out more information on this topic as we have it!
NO SCHOOL TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9th Road conditions, sidewalks, & parking lots have not & will not improve over night, therefore the decision has been made to cancel school once again for Tuesday, February 9, 2021. Please stay warm & be safe!
Due to the extremely low temperatures & slippery road conditions, Oswego USD 504 will not have school on Monday, February 8, 2021.
💛❤️ Super Bowl Spirit Week ❤️💛
Miss Ann’s preschool classes enjoyed making sunflower treats for Kansas Day.
Oswego Schools believe that many of the quarantine, exposure and positive COVID cases we experienced during Christmas Break were actually the result of Thanksgiving Break. With that, we theorize that similar experiences are quite possible this January/February coming out of this past Christmas Break. In addition, we would like to remind everyone to be particularly mindful of COVID symptoms and to avoid sending students to school if they exhibit two or more of those symptoms. Also, please keep students at home until testing results on them or others in the household have been returned. If those results are positive, the student would be expected to begin quarantine. Overall, our experience first semester at school was extremely positive and safe. We would very much like our second semester to mirror and continue that trend as much as is possible. Please do what you can to keep yourself, your household as well as others in the school and community as safe as possible by avoiding unnecessary contact and remaining out of contact when exhibiting symptoms. Thank you all very much.
