Otto Petersen Elementary School
We have finally made it to the end of a very challenging year of growth and perseverance! The determination, support, and resilience that has been demonstrated from every student, staff member, family, and community member through this pandemic has been nothing short of incredible. Thank you for sticking with us and collaborating to help our schools and community reopen slowly while maintaining safety measures for all. This has been a tremendous team effort!
Registration for the 2021-2022 school year is open now for new students and families returning to the district! We anticipate a five-day week, in-person model for next year for all students. Registration links can be found on the district and building websites.
I wish you all a safe, relaxing, adventurous and wonderful summer! We are so excited to bring normalcy back into our schools for the 2021-2022 school year and look forward to serving the wonderful students and families of Scappoose!
