COVID-19 Resources

Olive Grove Charter School continues to operate remotely throughout the evolving COVID-19 situation.

Our learning centers are closed, but we continue to support our students and families throughout this period of time so that they can maintain their learning. Students are continuing coursework as usual, with the virtual support of advisors, online teachers, counselors, and other support staff.
