Our school year looked different this year, but in true artist form, our students found creative and innovative ways to create art under the guidance of their amazing art teachers. Please enjoy masterpieces from both Option 1 and 2 Artists in our 2021 Virtual Spring Art Show. Thank you, OSH Art teachers, for your hard work and dedication to celebrating and displaying our students’ talents.
Your Oscar Smith Tiger Football Team defeated South County 62-21 on Saturday afternoon to win the VHSL Division 6 State Championship.

Congratulations on an amazing season and we look forward to seeing them back on the field in August!!

Parents can use this to report an absence for their children and upload any documentation related to absences.
Congratulations to Audra Jeffries, our 2021 Teacher of the Year! Mrs. Jeffries has been working in education for 19 years including the last 14 at Oscar Smith. Some of the accolades use to describe her are: “the heart of the school;” “always advocates for students and teachers; “has extra common sense, she sees what works and sees what does not;” and “works to make teachers’ jobs easier because she works so hard.” She is an amazing colleague and faculty member, when she sees a need, she goes out of her way to see what she can do to help! She has a positive impact on the entire school and community. She keeps us all moving forward and wanting to be better. Congrats, Mrs. Jeffries!!
