Arrival and Dismissal Procedures
When students are being dropped off in the morning, please use the entire length of the drop off zone (even past the cross walk) to keep the line moving. Thank you for you assistance in keeping these busy times running smoothly!
Additionally, If you pick up or drop off your child, please, remember to NOT park your car in front of the school! The line needs to keep moving to efficiently get kids in and out of school in a timely manner. If for some reason, you need to leave your car, please use the available parking spaces.
December 22nd Pajama Day
Candid and Group Pictures
Members of the Otsego Team will once again be conducting community forums this spring. Otsego parents, staff, and community are invited to attend one of the informational sessions below. We need to hear from parents and community members on the things we are doing right and what needs improvement. We will update the community on key initiatives that we have implemented this year and look ahead to the next school year. We will also provide a financial overview of the past several years and will discuss the financial forecast. You will have the opportunity to ask the team questions and make suggestions on how we can strengthen the Otsego Local School District. “Our Students, Our Community, Our Success”

SAVE ALUMINUM CAN TABS
Please help our students by collecting tabs from aluminum cans. Each tab is easy to remove and can be donated to the Ronald McDonald House. The tabs help fund various projects for Ronald McDonald Houses and its visitors. Send the tabs in a bag to the school and our students will do the rest!
SAVE BOX TOPS AND CAMPBELLS SOUP LABELS
You can help the school earn money for supplies by collecting Box Tops and Campbells labels from soup, juices and snacks. Our PTO collects and counts them and puts the money straight back into the school.
