Empty Seat Applications

For those parents who completed a “Empty Seat Application” for busing, we have received the following information from OSTA:

“OSTA staff is focused on providing support and services for students and their families, and school communities most affected by the tornadoes.  Due to a disruption of service, OSTA will be delaying review of empty seat applications until October 5, 2018. Seat assignments will begin the following week.  Parents are encouraged to check the Parent Web Portal for Seat assignments. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding during these trying times.”
