District of Innovation Plan
OISD is moving forward with the District of Innovation plan. The plan will allow the district to obtain more flexibility in order to better meet the unique needs of the district, students, and community. The board adopted final plan can be viewed here.
New Lunch Prices
Student lunch prices are now $2.35 and adult prices are $3.50. This increase was necessary because of state requirements. OISD was below the state requirement and would have been penalized if we did not meet the minimum requirements.
Sign Up for District E-Notes
Parents, students and staff—sign up for district E-Notes to stay informed about bad weather days, early release, delayed starts, school events and other important information going on at school. We will no longer use the School Messenger notification system that would call and leave voice messages. E-Notes will be delivered either text or email (or both) depending on the method you select. Stay informed and get signed up now!
To subscribe to DISTRICT NOTIFICATIONS, enter your information on the left hand side of this page.
Each teacher will still have their individual E-Notes, but you will have sign up for each of those separately. The quickest way to do this is to go to each teacher’s webpage and sign up.

Oglesby Independent School District now has a Facebook Page!
It is our goal to use Facebook to recognize our student and staff accomplishments! Please note that we will post as often as time allows. Also note, we will not use Facebook for late starts, school closures, or unannounced early release days. You may sign up for District e-notes for those announcements and also follow our local TV/Radio stations. As always, our District website is the best source for current school information. Thank you for following the Tigers and Lady Tigers!
