Dear OPA Families, The third trimester started on Friday, March 19th. We had a successful transition of 69 new Hybrid Learning students on Monday, March 22nd. Although we had an increase in cars dropping off and picking up students, we were able to have a smooth process. We ask all hybrid families to adhere to our guidelines in order to continue to have a smooth process at drop off and pick up. Please make sure that everyone wears a mask, and drives slowly and safely at all times.

Chancellor's Message March 21, 2021

Dear OPA Families, A year ago, we were forced to close our school and educate our Champions 100% virtually. Seven months ago, we started the school year virtually. On October 21, 2020 in-person learning resumed. Now, we are starting the third trimester with half of our students in-person. The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest disruption of education systems in history. The education disruption has had and will continue to have, substantial effects beyond education.

Happy Women’s History Month! This month is a time for all of us to recognize the incredible accomplishments women have made throughout history and the need for us to continue to push our young women champions to strive for greatness and support each other to fulfill their dreams.
