Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year.  Old Fort is a wonderful place to “do life together,” and we appreciate the partnerships we have with all of our Stockader families to do great things for kids!  Our district has a long, proud tradition of community support for our schools. The citizens of our community are active and highly engaged, as evidenced by healthy spectator support at all of our student events!

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. Additionally, 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, churches, and local businesses.

In addition to our academic initiatives, which are ambitious, some of our climate & culture goals this year include enhancing our district newsletter, adding more parent engagement events, bringing a heavy focus to restorative practices for handling discipline, and increasing our social media presence.  We are optimistic for a fairly “normal” school year this year.  Whatever lies before us, please know that we will strive to make wise and sensible decisions that are right for Old Fort.  

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
