Available now: the Otselic Valley Reopening Plan,  a video with more information, and a parent/guardian FAQ Available now: the Otselic Valley Reopening Plan, a video with more information, and a parent/guardian FAQ
The Otselic Valley Central School District Reopening Plan is now available, along with a video from Mr. Drahos and Mrs. Richards, a transcript of his remarks, and a Parent/Guardian Reopening Frequently Asked Questions document.  These documents reflect the work of an Otselic Valley Task Force that was charged with sorting 165 pp of New York State official guidance in 17 days on behalf of Otselic Valley. Nothing about this has been clear or easy, but the task force brought a combined 350 years of experience to the task. Additional information and detail will be provided in the weeks to come as official guidance is received, and as we work together to educate students in a way that is safe for students, by extension their families, and our staff.  Read More

School reopening update (July 17, 2020) School reopening update (July 17, 2020)
We hear your questions: Will Otselic Valley reopen for in-person school in the fall, and what exactly is it going to look like? We’re working on that. On July 13, 2020, a number of documents for NYS school districts became available: the New York State  Education Department and the NYS Department of Health issued guidance and very specific checklists for school reopening plans. We are expecting more official information this week too. These details are important because we must submit an Otselic Valley-specific plan for reopening to NYSED by July 31, 2020.

Message from Mr. Drahos, July 9, 2020, with COVID-19 protocols Message from Mr. Drahos, July 9, 2020, with COVID-19 protocols
It is my honor to be joining the Otselic Valley Learning Community as your interim superintendent. During these unprecedented times of uncertainty it is my hope that I can use my experience to assist the district during this period of transition to a permanent superintendent. In the days and months ahead the Otselic Valley Board of Education and I will do everything in our power to navigate the twists and turns that will challenge our mission to educate and inspire every student to achieve excellence. I am confident we have an amazing and committed staff to do precisely that. I look forward to getting to know the  supportive parents and community members who support the school and its children in so many ways.

FFA members attend Leadership Conference
This past weekend, ten FFA members from the Otselic Valley FFA chapter attended the 212/360 Leadership Conference in Syracuse with about 900 other FFA members from across the state. This two-day event’s theme was “Influence.” The conference included sessions where students learned how to define influence and identify the influence process, along with recognize positive characteristics in relationships. Students learned how to determine if someone is trustworthy and explored methods for building others’ trust. They also learned about leadership and purpose. They participated in activities that taught them how to build relationships within their chapter and how to positively influence others. We are proud of all of the FFA members who took time out of their weekend to learn how to be a positive influence for our FFA chapter, school and community. Good job!
