NBC Channel 4 News feature (April 2, 2020) on Oswalt Academy: Even though the school campus is physically closed, Oswalt Academy's staff decided to show their families how much they missed them in a special way.
"Oswalt Academy is a very special place filled with people that truly care for kids and it showed this past week. In our time of social distancing and school dismissal, Oswalt Teachers and Staff wanted to connect with our students in a special way. They got together in a collaborative effort to design a parade route that went through our school’s neighborhood and community. Teachers and staff made signs and decorated their cars to send heartfelt messages to our kids and families making sure they knew how much we miss them. We are a family at Oswalt, and together we will rise above these times as only EAGLES can!!" - Oswalt Principal Jason Garcia.
