Cultivating Success, Honoring Diversity, Serving Others

We Are Capital.

“True community is based upon equality, mutuality, and reciprocity. It affirms the richness of individual diversity as well as the common human ties that bind us together.” - Pauli Murray

A Message from Capital Administration

  • We encourage parents to join the OSD Citizens Advisory Group to provide feedback on the proposed balanced school calendar. Please click HERE for more information.
  • Please see the latest equity information from the OSD.
  • Students – Please present your tardy pass to the cafeteria for breakfast if you are late to school.  Please note:  Students on late busses do not need a tardy pass for breakfast.  We want to ensure all students are in class, but are also able to have breakfast if they arrive late.
  • Students - Remember to check your Schoology account and spend some time during spring break to get your make-up work completed and finish the year strong.  Be safe, read a book, and enjoy your spring break!
  • Please take a moment to review the Olympia School District balanced calendar details and informative video.
