To Buy Otego Elementary

OCA Parent Kim Hastings is a picture of delight, above, as the Unatego Central school board announced a few minutes ago that the Oneonta Christian Academy’s $100,000 bid for the vacant Otego Elementary School has been accepted. Seated behind Hastings, OCA board member Rita Oellerich and Elizabeth Cook, 12th grade teacher and director of programming, embrace.  The vote was unanimous, with board member Dick Downey saying the sale “maintains the heart of the community.”  Inset left, OCA school board Vice President Julie Dostal expresses appreciation.  The OCA will begin holding events at the Mission-style 1931 building that dominates the village’s downtown immediately, Cook said, and plans are to conduct summer school there next year, and to start classes there in September.  “All we’ll need is the keys,” Cook said.  (James Cummings/AllOTSEGO.com)

    Awesome news, so happy to read this. Having grown up in the village myself and family have longtime fond memories of not only the town and its people but this school, the teachings and community surrounding this small school and all that it stood for. It was always a centerpiece and hub of activity for all families that lived there. Wishing you all the best as you move forward in opening the doors to a new and exciting future.
