Mr. Daniel Silky received notice from the Chenango County Health Department's Public Health Sanitarian that all water restrictions have been rescinded. A checklist was given to the school to prepare for the return to village water. It is expected that water will be safe to drink at school by Friday, November 30, 2018.

WATER UPDATE via Superintedent Rob Berson on Nov. 25, 201:Mr. Berson has been advised that the Chenango County Health Department cleared the school district for normal operations provided that "potable" water (which means it's safe to drink) is provided for drinking and food preparation at school. We have fulfilled that requirement: cases and jugs of water have been delivered for student and staff use. Two cases have been placed in each classroom, and the cafeteria has what they need. Also, hand washing is permissible from normal lavatory sinks, and all hand sanitizers are full. We look forward to seeing everyone back at school!

The Board of Education will honor Coach David W. Loomis by renaming one of the most-used and well-loved parts of our school. At halftime during the Friday, November 30 Boys Varsity basketball game (game start: 7:00 PM), our gym will be renamed the David W. Loomis Gymnasium. All are invited to join us in the well-deserved celebration of decades of Coach Loomis's teaching, coaching, administration, advising, and mentoring students. A coach's influence doesn't end when the game concludes, as countless Vikings can tell you. Thank you, Coach Loomis.

Ms. Moisan has arranged for a number of college representatives to come to O V and meet students interested in more information about what these schools have to offer. On October 31 a Utica College representative was here, and three more schools are scheduled to visit on November 5, 6, and 7. This opportunity is not just for Vikings who have made up their minds about college. Students are encouraged to learn more as a way to make their best informed decisions about choices after graduation. (Links to schools in article)

Congratulations to the elementary "OV Stars" who demonstrated kindness, active thoughtfulness, and care for others. OV Stars are creative with compassion and attention to others, and we are so pleased that in Morning Program Ms. Blake and her assistants recognized these students and what they did for others. Every random act of kindness is noticed by at least one person -- the person on the receiving end! -- and that might start a chain reaction. Thank you, students.
