Letter to the Community

Dear OSSD Community,

There are few things that can tear a school community apart like fighting over the change of a mascot.  All one has to do is examine the division stirred in South Burlington when they shifted their mascot from the Rebels to the Wolves.   A quick glance across the country shows the same pattern playing out repeatedly as districts acting on social conscience change their mascots to ones that are more socially acceptable.  Our district is in a similar, but not identical, boat and it’s something I’ve considered for a long while now.
