2023-24 Calendar Finalized; No More Early Release on Fridays

The Board of Education has approved the Ozark School District calendar for the 2023-2024 school year. School start and end times remain the same. However, Fridays will no longer release one hour early. Instead, students will have more three-day weekends with one Monday a month off of school. These will be staff work days and will allow our teachers and staff more time to collaborate, plan and participate in professional development opportunities. The Ozark Community Center will offer childcare on Mondays.
