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.
RETURN TO SCHOOL 2021 (message distributed July 27, 2021)
Students will return to school on Tuesday, August 10 for the beginning of a new school year. Please view the district and schools’ websites and social media platforms for registration times for each grade as well as other information related to the new school year. You may refer to the school calendar for required days of attendance for students.
Oneonta City Schools will participate with in-person instruction, all day, for five days each week. At this time, masks and face coverings will be optional for students and adults. We will continue to practice safe health practices and social distancing for students and employees. We encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread of communicable and notifiable diseases.
Please notify the office of each school if you have specific questions regarding your child. We look forward to a new beginning and our hopes for a safe and healthy school year.
