Each month when O V Star Awards are shared, we see something new. There is no end, apparently, to the ways in which our students demonstrate thoughtful caring and inspired action. Even the youngest Vikings show us how to work hard and care for others. Thank you, everyone. We are so glad you are part of Otselic Valley Central School.

The Otselic Valley Board of Education is changing this year’s meeting schedule by providing two school board meetings during most months in the 2021-2022 school year. The first meeting of each month will be curriculum-based, and will include presentations by instructional staff showing student opportunities and outcomes. Providing ample presentation opportunities means the school board will learn more about a variety of topics including instruction by subject area or grade level instruction, athletics, guidance, etc. The second meeting of each month will be business related, including progress on capital projects, financial statements, treasurer reports, and more.

We are so very sorry to share news of the passing of Mr. James L. Dutton, who died in his sleep in the South Otselic home in which he was born. His 91 years were spent in a lifetime of giving to this community, including students. A member of the Class of 1947, Mr. Dutton went on to teach school here for 28 years, direct the summer recreation program for 22 years where he taught hundreds of students to swim in the Otselic River, and coach assorted school athletic teams. Sports fans will also remember his announcing the OV basketball games from 1971 to 2011. The Dutton family cordially invites the public to join a celebration of his life on Saturday, July 10 at 1 pm on the James L. Dutton Athletic Field behind the Otselic Valley school. (Please bring your own chair.)
