Welcome Back!
Posted on 08/30/2019
Welcome BackThe Odessa Public School staff is excited to be back! We can’t wait to see you on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 3 at 8:05. We hope you had a lovely summer filled with family, friends and good times!

As you might have noticed, our school has been under construction this summer. It has been a busy couple of months at Odessa, with many improvements to our site. We have had another section of our roof replaced, as well as many new windows installed. The most obvious improvement is the work being completed on the playground at the front of our school. Many of you are aware of the ongoing drainage issues on that yard. Though we tried to solve the issues previously with minor interventions, it turns out that the yard needed significant intervention to re-mediate the issues. While the work is not yet complete, we are happy with the progress that has been made and look forward to a much better play experience for our younger students. More information will come soon with respect to improving our play areas. For now, our Kindergarten to Grade 2 students will use our side yard to begin the day and for their recesses. 

As is always the case, the Elementary Staffing Committee will review the enrollment in our schools at the end of the first week in order to determine whether staff need to be re-allocated in the system. Should this occur for Odessa this year, there may be class re-organization. We hope that our organization will remain the same but will inform you as soon as possible if that is not the case. 

The staff will be outside on the first day of school to greet students. There will be lots of support as students get off their bus and staff will direct them to the correct yard and the correct teacher. Don’t forget your indoor shoes and a water bottle!

Looking forward to seeing you Tigers! 

Please remember to keep an eye out for new faces - let's give them a kind and supportive Tiger welcome!
