Ms. Lisa Freeman, Principal

    Hello Ozona Families,

    Welcome to the "Ozona Life"!  I am thrilled to serve as the principal of Ozona Elementary School. I am looking forward to an outstanding year getting to know the "new to" Ozona students and families, as well as welcoming back current students and families. Part of our school mission is to create student achievement in collaboration with the school community; that's YOU! Assistant Principal Downes and I work side by side with teachers and parents to ensure that each student can achieve at his/her optimum potential. Working together, we can make certain your child's school year is a happy and successful one. We know the teachers and staff are excited to begin the 2022-2023 school year and so are we!
