School of the Osage officials are trying to give their parents more ways to stay informed on what’s happening in the district. Recently, they sent text messages to parents giving them the opportunity to “opt-in” to a new text alert system the district is utilizing. Parents who chose not to participate can still receive voice calls if they’re signed up for that service. The status of the opt-in texting system will be discussed when the board of education meets Monday evening. The work session begins at 6:00 p.m. in the Heritage Building Archive Room.
