Unatego Board Votes To Close Otego Elementary

Unatego Board Votes

To Shut Otego School

“You have ripped the heart out of our community,” Buzz Hesse tells the Unatego Central school board moments after they voted 6-1 to close the Otego Elementary School during a packed meeting this evening. With only James M. Salisbury voting against the closure, the board decided that K-5 would be moved to the Unadilla Elementary School in September. Though originally planned for a June 31 closure, Superintendent David S. Richards agreed to keep the building open for summer programming, with a closing date of Aug. 31. No teaching positions will be lost, but Rene’ Treffeisen, board president, said the principal, a secretary, several aides and maintenance position will be eliminated. (Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com
