Dear Oswegatchie School Community, 

I hope you and your family have had a safe and happy summer break so far! It’s hard to believe that the 2014-2015 school year is just around the corner. I am excited to see you all and meet our new students. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 27th. It will be a full day of school and lunch will be served. As buses arrive in the morning, staff will be outside to greet students and direct and/or accompany those who are unfamiliar with our school to their respective classrooms. We will not have morning recess on our first day.

Scheduled bus routes and times can be found at this link: http://www.waterfordschools.org/Page/3679.  If you are transporting your child to school, however, there is a designated driveway for that purpose. We request that you use the driveway to the right side as you enter the school, the left side is for buses only, and do not park your vehicle in the drop-off area or handicapped spaces.  When you plan to pick up your child at the end of the day, please send a note into your child’s classroom teacher. At dismissal time, all “walkers”  will be escorted to the gymnasium, and you will be required to sign out your child(ren) from one of our staff members just outside the gym. Please be sure to have proper identification with you. 


It will be a great year at Oswegatchie, and I am looking forward to welcoming the children and meeting you at our Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 9th from 6 to 7 p.m.  


I hope you enjoy the rest of these spectacular summer days, and we’ll see your children on Wednesday August 27.
