Dear Oneonta Middle School Community,
I want to extend a very warm welcome to the students and parents of Oneonta Middle School. The middle school years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. Each year provides important transitions and acquisitions of new skills. I value the social and emotional development of each child as they transition through early adolescence. Oneonta Middle School is committed to providing a challenging, rigorous curriculum and a safe environment for students to develop.
As the principal of OMS, I believe that it is my responsibility to build and maintain a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways. Our students' success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community, and this is more important now than ever. It truly does take a village to raise a child, and at Oneonta Middle School, we value teamwork and collaboration! Education is a joint venture and Team OMS greatly appreciates the support you provide for your children.
OCS traditional learning students return Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
Monday, November 30, is a remote learning day for all students. Oneonta City Schools plans to reopen for traditional learning students on Tuesday, December 1. The building has been professionally cleaned and sanitized during our break, and the goal is for our schools to remain open until Friday, December 18. We will be monitoring conditions of our school and community, and we will be prepared to close if necessary.
We hope that all of our students, faculty, staff and their families have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday.
