Ossining Union Free School District has a Twitter feed for all of those interests.

“We have so much to be proud of and so much to share in Ossining, we want our community to have as many ways of obtaining information as possible,” said Interim Superintendent Raymond Sanchez. “That’s why we’ve added these new Twitter feeds that allow community members to pick and choose the type of news they are most interested in receiving.”
Residents can choose to follow any of the four Twitter feeds by signing up for Twitter, a free, social media service at www.twitter.com. Once you are signed up, you can type in the name of the feed you wish to follow in the search box at the top of the page. The four district feeds are:
