Remote Learning - Thursday and Friday, January 13 & 14, 2022
Due to increasing absences of employees and students, all Oneonta City Schools will transition to Remote Learning tomorrow and Friday. Students will not report to school tomorrow, Jan. 13 or Friday, Jan. 14. Since schools were scheduled to be closed this coming Monday, Jan. 17, this means students' first day back will be next Tuesday, Jan. 18. All employees will support learning from home and we'll use this time to clean and sanitize our building.
STUDENTS RETURN TO SCHOOL WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5, 2022
We hope you all enjoyed the holiday season and break from school.
On Wednesday, January 5th, students will return to school to continue in-person learning.
As a reminder, masks are required to be worn by any student being transported on a school bus.
At this time, masks are not required in the school building, but we strongly encourage students to wear masks in the hallways and classrooms, along with handwashing and social distancing to combat the spread of the COVID or flu virus. We will continue to monitor health issues in our area and will inform you if further action is required. Thank you.

This is the time for Board Policy Revision. Please visit the attached form to make suggestions for any changes you would like to see in our policies.

MASK/FACE COVERING STATEMENT AS OF SEPTEMBER 28, 2021....posted 9-28-2021.Oneonta City Schools will continue with the mask / face covering requirement through Friday, October 1, 2021. Beginning on Monday October 4, OCS will transition to masks / face coverings preferred and recommended but not required. Students will be required to keep a mask with them in the event that a teacher should require a mask for a particular activity, (i.e. small group work with students working closely together for an extended period of time). Administrators will coordinate with teachers for masks to be available for each classroom.Masks / face coverings will continue to be required at all times while adults and students are being transported on a school bus. This remains a requirement of the Department of Transportation, (Federal and State Requirement).I want to thank you for your support and efforts during the past few weeks regarding the mask / face covering requirements. We have been able to keep our schools open which has been our hope and goal. I hope that we can continue to do so. We have seen our numbers related to sickness decrease significantly during this time. We will continue to monitor COVID related illness and hope that we can continue to use masks as an option but not a requirement.
