IF weather makes travel difficult tomorrow (Tues, 3/14), students/staff will do virtual learning instead of a snow day. We've already used all snow days planned for this year, so having virtual learning instead of an extra snow day means we won't have to change the school calendar later in the year. It's understood that power outages may play a part tomorrow, but we ask all to do their best to attend. Teachers will send students home with their devices and/or paper copies of work to be done as needed. Stay safe!

Otselic Valley recently hosted a sensitivity training assembly for 9th-12th graders with guest presenter Dr. Lyosha Gorshkov from Colgate University. His background in history and political science and his early years in the former Soviet Union informed discussion about those we may think of as "other." "Society is not yet at a point of sensitivity and tolerance," he said, "but I'm not challenging your beliefs, just stating the facts about what's in our society." So where to begin? History and vocabulary. We hope this training will help students better understand others' perspectives and feelings, because all are welcome here.
