A Message From the Superintendent

Old Bridge Families: 

It is astonishing that I have to report that at this time our nation’s capital is safe. However, this is our current reality and we pray that all persons are protected from harm’s way. Our overarching responsibility is to the social and emotional wellness of our children. During this troublesome time, children may have questions and concerns related to the tragic and shameful events at our nation’s Capitol Building. What our learners witness via television and social media is sure to elicit fears and misinformation. The best we can do is ensure them that they are safe and loved.

Be well, be kind, believe in OB.
