Pandemic EBT Benefits Letter
Exciting news for our school community. The school is able to test COVID symptomatic students through a program called Learn to Return. This is an oral swab and much easier for students to self-administer. If your student has symptoms, we are happy to assist you in getting a test.

The Ocosta School District has been awarded $20,000 from the Grays Harbor Community Foundation for the elementary music program. Music teacher, JR Lakey, started at Ocosta in the fall of 2019 and had very few materials to work with. Mr. Lakey is also the executive director of The Garage: Music and Arts Center in Aberdeen. The district is excited that they have someone with such a vast background in the community leading the music program. This grant will give Mr. Lakey the opportunity to buy the instruments and supplies to start a music program that can grow into a comprehensive music program district-wide. A bulk of the money will be to used to by Orff instruments, which include xylophones, glockenspiels, and percussion instruments. District Superintendent, Heather Sweet, stated that there are so many possibilities for our students to learn music using Orff instruments. The district greatly appreciates the support for the arts from GHCF.
