Return to Learn 2020-21

Beginning April 12
Otsego's K-5th grade students will remain in full-time, face-to-face learning five days a week. Safety protocols will remain in place and we encourage all families to review the in-person learning plans linked below.
 
Otsego Middle School students will begin an alternate Hybrid Learning Plan. Students will be in their blue and gold groups, then alternate in-person instruction on Wednesdays. Go to the Remote/Hybrid Learning Plans page for the calendar details.
 
Otsego High School will be in the Remote Learning Plan April 12-16 then begin the Alternate Hybrid Learning Plan on Monday, April 19. Students will use the Remote Learning Plans on the website through the link to Remote/Hybrid Learning Plans on the menu to the right.
 
All of our learning plans are decided with various stakeholders, including local and state health officials, and focus on a combination of academics, social-emotional health and safety. We will always monitor the most updated health guidelines and information available to guide our decisions.

Each school has outlined the expectations, rules and guidelines for a full in-person instructional plan.
