Dear Oswego City School District Community,
Dr. Mathis A. Calvin
It is with great pride that I write to say hello to all of you as we begin this upcoming school year.  As we approach the 2020-2021 school year our as a district our goal is to ensure the following:
  1. All students will receive a high-quality education that is aligned with our district mission “fully prepared and life ready!”
  2. All students and staff are safe in our schools at all times.  There is nothing more important to us than the health and safety of our staff and students; and
  3. Our district will operate in an efficient manner which reflects the trust that our taxpayers have placed in the district.
As you are all aware during this school year we will be reopening our schools in an unprecedented manner. Like many schools throughout our nation, State and region, we will be offering a hybrid educational program.  Specifically, our Pre-K – 6 students will have a choice of receiving a combination of “in person” instruction and remote – virtual instruction or all virtual instruction.  Our secondary students will begin this school 100% remotely – virtually. To add to this, a specific group of our 7-12 students with more severe disabilities and/or English Language Learners will be provided with between 2-4 days of “in person” instruction, dependent upon their educational needs.

Given this year’s education reopening plan, I would like to encourage our community to:
  1. Work diligently to have your child and/or children available online at their scheduled virtual instructional time
  2. Follow through with the necessary health precautions that we will be enforcing in our schools: wearing a mask each day to school, social distancing and washing hands for at least 20 seconds wherever possible; and lastly
  3. Reach out to your child’s school with any questions or concerns that you might have throughout this school year.
Please know, our feeling is that “we are all in this together.” With that said, any and everything that we can do to partner with all of you is important to us!

I wish you all a great school year. Thank you in advance for your patience and efforts throughout this year.

Your Newest Buccaneer,

Mathis Calvin III, Ed. D.
Superintendent of Schools
