Pick Up and Parking After School

Please use the side streets and other public lots for picking up students after school.  The buses leave at 2:55 PM, if you must pick your child up in front of the building, it is best to wait to pick up them up after the busses leave.  Please do not use the OPS parking lots to sit and wait for students.  

Let’s Go Trojans!

Thanks to Owosso Public Schools’ administration, all Owosso students can attend all athletic events free of charge! Elementary age students must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear Owosso apparel. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to attend events and support each other. Please remind students of appropriate behavior so this is continued to be provided to them.

Visit the concession stand to support the

Owosso Sports Boosters as well.
