Osakis Public School students and staff are committed to giving back to our community. The Small Engines class took time off from working on their projects to help with fall clean up and new mulch at the Welcome to Osakis sign located near the I-94 offramp.
What can I say? Osakis has the best students who are willing to help out whenever needed, like during the Backpack Attack. Thank you very much to the students who spent their time helping others in need. We very much appreciate your dedication!

Online sexual solicitations 5. Cyberbullying The FBI has seen a significant increase in sextortion activity nationwide that is affecting thousands of U.S. children.

Please see the Douglas County Sheriff's Department News Release: Details: On September 23, 2021 at about 8:11 A.M., the Osakis Public School District contacted the Osakis Police Department in reference to a bomb threat they had received via email. Osakis Schools evacuated all students and staff according to their policies and procedures. A notification went out to parents and children were transported to safe zones where they were held for pick-up by their parents/guardians. The Osakis Fire Department and Douglas County Sheriff's Office responded to the school with Osakis Police. A physical search of the building was conducted with no suspicious items discovered. While the building was searched, Douglas County Sheriff's Office Investigators began to trace the email and follow leads. They were able to determine that the email was sent from out of state. There is no indication of an actual device planted in the building, parents and staff were then allowed back into the building to retrieve personal belongings. The investigation is ongoing but we do not believe that there is any danger to the public or Osakis Schools at this time. Because the investigation is active, names will not be released. No injuries were reported as a result of this incident. Involved agencies: Osakis Police Department, Osakis Public Schools, Osakis Fire Department, Douglas County Sheriff's Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. No further Information will be released at this time Douglas County PIO : Julie Anderson - (320)304-711
