Goal exceeded at local blood drive

Despite school being closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Osmond Community School anatomy class still held its annual spring blood drive. The goal for the day was 41 units; however, class instructor Kerri Conn said there were 52 units collected for the day. “Thank you very much to all who came out to donate,” Conn said. Osmond Community School Principal Kurt Polt is shown giving his donation. Asked about “playing hooky” as he was donating during the school day, Polt said he was keeping an eye on other staff members, who were also donating blood that day.  Under the recommendation of the Commissioner of Education and local health directors, Osmond Community Schools has ceased normal educational services through the end of the school year; however, school administrators said, “We are not closing. We are simply changing how educational services will be provided to students. Right now, OCS staff members are working diligently to develop an educational plan that will provide students with quality learning opportunities.”
