#OCSBFirstDay 2017

At the beginning of each school year, I marvel at how our schools are so well prepared and welcoming for the return of our students. Each year, our Planning and Facilities Department coordinate hundreds of construction and renovation projects over the summer two month period, and our caretaking staff work diligently to ensure that our schools are sparkling clean.

This year, we faced an unexpected challenge at the beginning of the summer with the fire at St. Francis of Assisi School.
