Happy Thursday Otsego Knights!

We made it! 3rd Quarter is in the books! Nine more weeks of school until summer break!

They have included an online store link in order to purchase directly online. Click on the link, choose the student you want to support and place your order!

A quick update on our school counselor. Mrs. Laudick will not be available until further notice. She is off on maternity leave and will return after. If you need to speak to a school counselor please contact the office and we will refer you to her replacement.

Safe School Helpline

Dear Parents, Students and Friends,

Recent polls show that parents’ first concern about schools today is their child’s safety. That is my concern as well. Fortunately, the Otsego is very safe. However, no community is immune from the threats of violence and drugs that endanger public schools nationwide.

We are introducing a Safe School Helpline® to help prevent such actions. It is designed to assist you in reporting any wrongdoing that impacts our schools, our students, or our staff – anonymously, so as to protect your privacy. For example, you may wish to report acts of violence, theft, drug or alcohol use, weapons, or sexual harassment.

Just call from a touch-tone phone to 1-800-4-1-VOICE, ext. 359 (418-6423) to leave your information. Or TEXT: 614-426-0240 Then type: TIPS Your message will not be traced, and you will not be identified. The Safe School Helpline® team will transcribe and fax your message to school officials, so appropriate action can be taken.

Thank you for your continued support to provide a better education for all Otsego students.

800-418-6423 (800-4-1-VOICE ext. 359)

TEXT: 614-426-0240

What happens if my child loses their agenda book?

Replacement agenda books can be purchased for $5 in the office.

When can I purchase a yearbook for my child?

Yearbook order forms will be sent home in the Spring. Yearbooks will be handed out the last week of school.

How do I check my child's grades online?

The link to access Online Grades is on the Parent tab on the Junior High page of the Otsego website (otsegoknights.org). Your child's username is their Student ID #. Their password is the first 3 letters for their first name with the first letter capitalized. For example: 12345 Joy

Is there an App to check my child's grades?

Yes. In your app store search for Powerschool. The username and password is the same one you use to access Online Grades. Our school code is CJCX.
