Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Onteora High School, I would like to invite you to our Virtual Open House on Thursday, September 30, from 6:00 to 8:30 P.M.  Parents will have the opportunity to meet their high school student's teachers in order to learn about course curriculum and teacher expectations. 

We have created an Open House webpage to facilitate the schedule and provide links to each teacher's Google Meet. You will need to review your high school student's schedule and follow this schedule period by period, finding each teacher's name on the webpage, and then clicking on the link to their Google Meet. Please note that we will be following an A-day schedule. If your student is scheduled for a lab or study hall on that A day, then please see their B-day teacher instead. There will be ten minutes allotted to each period, with five minutes in between. 

If you experience technical difficulty during the evening, please contact my office at (845) 657-8200. We will have staff available to assist.

Our Open House is a chance to meet the teachers and get an overview of the classes.  It is not the time for individual conferences. Individual conferences will be held on November 2 and November 3. More information will follow.

I would like to encourage you to continue using the parent portal. Student grades, attendance, food services account information, transportation, etc. are available on the portal. If you have not established an account, information to obtain an account is available on our website under “Parent Resources.”

I hope that you take advantage to interact with our faculty and staff at our Virtual Open House. It is a great opportunity to meet with your student’s teachers and to see what their day is like.
