Everyday Heroes
OSD Teachers, Principals and Child Nutrition Services Employees

I’d like to nominate ALL our OSD teachers, principals and Child Nutrition Services for Everyday HERO! These past few months have been a whirlwind of learning how to teach our students online. I want to say you have all done amazing. I am proud of all the hard work and dedication you have all put in to support our students. I’m shouting whoop whoop to you all!
