FINAL CHANCE TO ATTEND ANNUAL PARENT MEETINGS
Attention parents/guardians of returning students: If you did not already attend an Annual Parent Meeting this past week, please remember to attend the only remaining meeting for your child’s conservatory next week. Each year, all parents/guardians are required to attend this meeting as a part of the annual enrollment process.
 
The remaining meetings will take place via Zoom on Tuesday, April 27 or Thursday, April 29, depending on the conservatory. To submit your RSVP, please visit www.ocsarts.net/AnnualMeeting. Thank you for your participation.
CAFETERIA VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
OCSA’s Parent Support Organization (PSO) is seeking parent volunteers to help serve lunch on campus Monday through Thursday for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. PSO is also in need of volunteers to serve lunch Monday through Friday in the upcoming 2021-2022 school year, in order to start training as soon as possible.
 
Volunteers should be able to commit to their shifts for the entire school year. Currently, volunteers will have to complete a health screening prior to arriving on campus and will need to check in with OCSA Security at the beginning of each shift. Please note that COVID-19 safety protocols may be updated as guidelines change.
 
Please contact PSO@ocsarts.net if you are interested in becoming a cafeteria volunteer or if you have any questions. Thank you for your support!
MIDDLE SCHOOL MEMORIES VIDEO
Attention middle school families: OCSA’s Leadership Class is putting together a Middle School Memories Video to celebrate the end of the year, and your help is needed! Students in grades 7 and 8 are encouraged to submit photos and videos of all of their best memories from OCSA, both pre-pandemic and during distance learning, to this form by next Friday, April 30. Submissions can be selfies with friends, videos from dances or shows, Zoom screenshots, etc. Make sure all memories are school appropriate, as they will be featured in a video that will be shared with the entire OCSA community.
WE WOULD LIKE YOUR FEEDBACK
Each school district is required to develop a Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) that aligns with their annual budget in collaboration with all stakeholders. OCSA’s LCAP identifies the school’s goals and aligns with the school's budget in order to guide spending as it relates to the state and local priorities.
 
Please click here to provide feedback on OCSA’s LCAP goals. The feedback form is open to OCSA parents/guardians, OCSA faculty/staff, and community members. The form will close on Friday, April 30. Thank you in advance for your participation.
FREE PRACTICE SAT/ACT TESTING
While OCSA will not be offering the Practice SAT or Practice ACT on campus this year, we are pleased to share that Test Prep Gurus will administer remote Practice SAT and Practice ACT exams this spring at no cost to OCSA students in grade 10. If your sophomore would like to take one or both of these practice exams, please register here by next Friday, April 30.
SCHOOL CALENDAR FOR 2021-2022
We would like to bring to your attention that there have been a few changes to the previously distributed 2021-2022 School Calendar, as well as the 2021-2022 List of Important Dates. If you have already printed either of these documents, we ask that you please reprint these most recent versions. 
 
Please note that some schoolwide events are still in the process of being scheduled and may result in additional minor adjustments to the calendar or list of important dates. We will continue to keep all families informed as dates are added or adjusted.
