A Message from Superintendent Bruce Watson on Bullying

Dear Onteora Community:

I want to reassure our community that the Onteora Central School District faculty, staff, and administration are unwavering in our commitment to providing students with a safe, supportive, inclusive learning environment that is free of bullying and prejudice, and in which all students feel valued. Today, and always, our staff is being vigilant and will address any behavior that would interfere with this mission. 

We also encourage all parents to speak with their children about the importance of valuing diverse opinions and respecting people for their differences. Students should be reminded that if they experience or witness bullying in any form, they should tell an adult they trust. 

Respectfully yours,

Bruce Watson, Superintendent of Schools
