IMPORTANT NOTICE
As you may know, OCSA has transitioned to a new email delivery system for all marketing emails, including the Weekly Wrap newsletter. We are currently experiencing an issue that may result in certain recipients receiving this newsletter later than others. While the Weekly Wrap newsletter is supposed to deliver on Fridays, some parents, students, and staff may receive the Friday, January 29 edition later this evening or even this weekend.

We are working to address this issue as quickly as possible and do not foresee additional delays with future communications. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may cause.
ADMINISTRATIVE TEAM RESTRUCTURE
As announced on Thursday, January 28, we are pleased to share that the OCSA Administrative Team will be restructured to better meet the needs of all students and stakeholders this school year and as we move into the future. Please see the original email communication for full details. Thank you for your support of the school’s ongoing growth and development!
VIRTUAL CLUB RUSH
The Spring 2021 Virtual Club Rush slideshow, containing fun details and instructions to join any of the 100+ incredible OCSA clubs, is now live! This presentation can also be found in the OCSA Club Google Classroom. If your student has not yet joined the classroom, here is an invite to join (class code: gxcobnc).

We know that students want more time to virtually socialize with their peers, so we encourage students to join however many clubs look interesting to them! Club meetings are held during lunch through Zoom sessions hosted and supervised by a faculty adviser. Every club's Zoom information is contained within their Google Classroom. If a club’s Google Classroom is not provided on their slide, please contact the faculty adviser. Happy clubbing!
CONSERVATORY TRANSFER DEADLINE SUNDAY
Attention OCSA students interested in a conservatory transfer for the 2021-2022 school year! The application deadline is this coming Sunday, January 31. If you are interested in applying for a conservatory transfer and have not done so already, please visit www.ocsarts.net/Apply. Prior to submitting your application, be sure to review the Conservatory Workshop/Review Guidelines.
DIPLOMA NAME VERIFICATION
Attention senior families: All 12th grade students must complete a name verification for their diploma by this coming Monday, February 1. If your senior has not done so already, please have them go into Aeries to verify their legal name and then complete this Google Form. While in Aeries, please make sure the address is also correct.

MARKETING EMAIL SYSTEM SIGN-UP
As you may know, OCSA has transitioned to a new email delivery system for all marketing emails, including this Weekly Wrap newsletter. Please note that Aeries Communications was not affected. If you need to sign up with a new email address or re-subscribe to our OCSA communications at any time, please visit www.ocsarts.net/Email. To remove an email address from our system, please select “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email received, or contact Family Liaison Becky Parsons at becky.parsons@ocsarts.net for assistance.
DONATION PAYMENT PROCESSING
We would like to remind you that we are currently transitioning to a new donation payment processing system and our usual online system will be down for a short time. Should you wish to make a donation during the transition, you can still mail payments to the attention of Becky Parsons at the OCSA Business Office, 1010 N. Main Street, Santa Ana, CA 92701. Any regularly scheduled Voluntary Contribution Agreement (VCA) installment payments will not be affected. Our new system will be up and running soon, and we will send notice to all donors of any changes to the payment process that occur as a result. If you have questions, please email becky.parsons@ocsarts.net or call 714.560.0900 ext. 5535.
