Congratulations to the Class of 2019. Our commencement ceremony is Friday, June 28th at 6 P.M. Our ceremony is currently scheduled to take place outdoors, on the football field. Tickets are not necessary for the ceremony as long as the ceremony is held outdoors.
Summer school for Onteora Middle/High School students will be held at Kingston High School (East Wing). Limited transportation will be provided for our students. Summer school classes will be in session Monday, July 8th through Monday, August 12th from approximately 8:00AM – 12:00PM. There are no summer school classes on Fridays. Regents exams will be administered Tuesday, August 13th and Wednesday, August 14th.
In an effort to minimize the amount of testing administered to students on a given day, the Onteora High School is spreading out the final examination schedule throughout the month of June. Information and a schedule can be found on our website under "Student Resources" or by selecting this link: June 2019 - Examination Information.
As an enthusiastic crowd of proud parents, friends, and community members looked on, Onteora High School seniors gratefully accepted scholarships totaling approximately $125,000 during a June 12 ceremony. Approximately 150 awards were announced at the event, which took place in the Harry Simon Auditorium.
This June, 16 Onteora seniors are graduating with a hard-won mark of distinction: New York State’s Seal of Biliteracy.
“The seal recognizes advanced achievement in English as well as another World Language,” explained Valerie Stewart, Onteora’s World Languages Liaison. This is the second year that the school district has encouraged students to seek this seal, which will be affixed to their high school diplomas and transcripts.
