Junior High Academic UIL-Wednesday, December 7th
We will be hosting the junior high academic UIL meet on Wednesday, December 7th. School will release at 12:30 pm that day and buses will run at this time. All junior high students participating in UIL must remain on campus and will not be allowed to leave until after competing in their last event. All elementary, high school, and junior high students NOT participating in UIL will need to make sure you have a way home, as you will be expected to leave campus.
A schedule of events is now available. We will do our best to keep all contest starting at the posted time.

Increase in Lunch Prices—Effective Immediately
Effective immediately, student lunch prices will be raised to $2.35, a $0.10 increase. This is due to state requirements. OISD was below the state requirement and would be penalized if we did not meet the minimum requirement. Sorry for any inconvenience.
