OES Student Item Pick-UP

Ossian Elementary will be open from 12:00pm – 6:00pm on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, for parents and students to retrieve personal items.


Students’ items will be bagged and placed on their class’s table in the OES gym. Tables are labeled with grade and teacher’s names. Students will not be permitted to return to the classroom. The rest of the building isn’t accessible due to construction. There will be a cart in the gym to return library books.

We expect social distancing to be observed at all time. Door 2 (Gym entrance) will be propped open so people entering will not need to touch them. Please touch as few surfaces as possible.


Please enter the building, retrieve personal items from table, and leave while maintaining at least 6’ between others at all times.
You can call Central Office at 260-622-4125 to arrange for another time if you cannot make it.


The AIM of the Northern Wells Community Schools is to equip students to maximize their present and future success.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, and that Indiana Stay Home Order, we will not be having Kindergarten Round-up. We are hoping to host our future Bears for a Kindergarten Screening at some point. We will reach out to families when we have solidified plans. Thank you for your patience and we are looking forward to meeting our new students.
