MRS. LAURA BRYANT, SUPERINTENDENT

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.  We are so excited to welcome students and families back to another great year!  

Old Fort has a long tradition of community support for our school district. The citizens of our community are active and highly engaged, as evidenced by healthy spectator support at all of our student events. The Stockader athletic programs, music and drama programs, FFA, and all extra curricular activities have a remarkable following, hopefully in person again this year. Our students grow up in a nurturing culture with a community that deeply cares, while our students continually provide our community with a sense of pride for all they do and who they are. This mutually supportive relationship is an ideal that many other districts would love to have. Old Fort is very blessed!

OFLS has adopted four Core Values that embody who we are as a district: Pride, Relationships, Integrity and Excellence. Each one of these words encompasses a unique aspect of our school community. As a district, we work hard to make financially responsible decisions, taking into consideration the desires of our community and the best interests of our students. We strive to be transparent regarding district interests, and we value our partnerships with community organizations, such as The Old Fort Lions Club, Reverse Raffle, Old Fort Church and more.

This year may continue to present unique challenges, similar to, but possibly different than, those we experienced last year. We have also learned that plans must remain fluid, and we must be ready to pivot quickly should circumstances necessitate a sudden change.  Overall, we will strive to make wise and sensible decisions that are right for Old Fort, and we remain committed to keeping kids in school. We will continue to persevere through these challenging times because we are STOCKADER STRONG!!! On behalf of our Board of Education, our Leadership Team and all of our employees, thank you for choosing Old Fort Local Schools!

With Children at Heart,

Mrs. Laura F. Bryant
