In an effort to meet the needs of our students, I want to ask parents to complete a “Distance Learning” survey to determine the availability of technology in students’ households and to receive other information to best serve each student.  Parents of students in grades K-5 will receive a link to the survey from their child’s homeroom teacher.  Students in grades 6-12 will receive a link to the survey via the students’ school email account.  Also, a link to the survey is located on the Oneonta City Schools District Website.  Please complete a survey for each student and submit it by 3:00 pm on Wednesday, April 1.  The information from the survey is vital in the way that we prepare instruction for our students.  Instruction for students will begin on Monday, April 6.  

Please complete this Distance Learning Survey by Wednesday, April 1, 3:00 pm:

Oneonta City Schools will remain closed until Monday, April 6. This includes all classes and after school activities. While no student assignments are required during the closure dates of March 16 through April 3, we hope that students will make time to read and engage in some learning activities. Any updates concerning our schools or community will be provided as needed. Please refer to the websites for our school district and each individual school for additional information. I want to thank everyone for your understanding and partnership during this time of uncertainty. I look forward to the time when we can return to our schools with our students and employees.

Thank you,
Daniel Smith, Superintendent
