March 26, 2020 Update from Superintendent McGarrity

March 26, 2020

Dear Parents/Guardians,


I hope this communication finds you and your family healthy.  I am writing to share some important updates with you.


Free breakfast/lunch 

The OPCSD has been delivering over 500 breakfasts and lunches to free/reduced meal eligible children in our school district.  We understand some parents may now suddenly find themselves laid off or unemployed, and we are here to support your children. Please email Jeff Petrus at if you believe that as a result of job loss or loss of income your children may now be eligible for breakfast and lunch.


Parent Emails in PowerSchool Portal

Teachers are sharing important assignments, learning tasks and activities with parents via email.  It is critical that we have up-to-date email addresses for parents. Please ensure we have your preferred email address in our PowerSchool Parent Portal.  To confirm your email or change your email, login to the parent portal and click “View/Change Contact Info”, for more detailed directions, please follow these steps:
Parent Portal - Change Contacts
You only need to make a change request once per family, changes will be made for all children.
If you have further questions on changing contact or for any information in the Parent Portal, please click the   PS HELP   link on the login page.
