OG Nation!
August is here, and we are gearing up for an amazing 2022-2023 school year! I wanted to
take this opportunity to express my extreme gratitude for entrusting us to educate your
child! We are fully aware of the enormous responsibility we have in making sure we
provide a safe and rich learning environment for all that attend Ogallala Public Schools.
Our vision is to create and sustain a Culture of Confidence for our students and staff
every minute of every day. Are we perfect? No, but we will always strive to improve so
that we can provide a world-class education right here in Ogallala.
One area that I would like to promote and highlight is our staff at Ogallala Public Schools.
As someone who has been in every classroom, every week, for an entire school year, I
can proudly say that our staff is filled with hard-working, passionate, and caring people!
We want you to know that we care about your child in every way possible and that we
will give our best every day!
Thank you for being such a supportive school community! We look forward to seeing
you all very soon!
**Stay tuned for more back-to-school information coming soon in the next few weeks via
our social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and our district website.
