Otsego Public Schools uses an electronic service to distribute fliers to our families. Parents not only receive an email with the flier but can also reference all of the fliers that have been posted for each school with just the click of a button. No more weeding through emails, use Peachjar as a quick reference.

Don't forget to download the OPS App - there is a Peachjar icon available on the app!

It is also important that all parents have an email address in Infinite Campus as this is how we will create the email lists for schools. Be sure to update your contact information in Infinite Campus. Please call our office if you need assistance.
