Dear Oswegatchie School Community,


In an effort to continually provide the safest environment for our Oswegatchie School community, we will be instituting a new security system soon.  The company providing the software is called School Gate. We will send a letter when we know the exact date that we will be up and running with our new system.


This will take the place of the sign-in sheet when you are at the school as a volunteer in a classroom, visiting for lunch or picking up your child during the day. The system includes a scan machine which will be located on the front counter close to where the sign-in sheet has been kept. You will be asked to scan your driver’s license or other government issued identification.  Once your information has been processed, a badge with your picture will be printed. The badge will have the date and time of your visit.  If for some reason, the system does not accept your information, the secretary will be able to scan your license a second time from her desk area.


I’d like to remind you that we have a busy night here at Oswegatchie. We have the final night of our Book Fair, Our One Stop Holiday Shopping Night, as well as Family Movie Night.  We have parent volunteers and Coast Guard Cadets who will help watch the kids while you shop on site. Shopping is open from 5:00 until 8:00 and the movie begins at 6:30.  The featured movie is The Polar Express.


Our Holiday Sing Along will take place on Monday, December 22nd at 2:00 this year.


Just a reminder the Youth Services Bureau offers FREE Homework help afterschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays until the December holiday break. They offer the help until 5:30 on those days. If you are interested, please call Youth Services at (860)444-5848 - spaces are limited.
