Otis Students Prep for OST

Otis Testing

Ohio State Testing begins at Otis on April 10th. Third, Fourth, and Fifth grade students have been busy learning all of the different material that they might see on the test. They have also been taking practice tests on the computer to help with learning all of the different tools that can be used since the test is given on the computer instead of paper/pencil. It’s important that the students are familiar with the testing site so that they are able to focus more on the questions that are asked and how they have to go about answering the questions.

Make sure that your student is eating a good breakfast, getting plenty of sleep, and is arriving to school on time the day of their scheduled test.

Good luck to everyone that is testing!

An Update From Fremont City Schools Superintendent Mr. Jon Detwiler

Recently, the local and national discussion has been dominated by school security. The tragedy in Florida has put the spotlight on what we can do to keep students and staff as safe as possible at school. The morning after the Parkland incident, Police Chief Dean Bliss and I met to discuss the District’s safety plans. As we discussed our preparedness, we agreed that the District is doing pretty well. Many of the recommendations from security experts are already in place, e.g. we lock all of our doors, buzz visitors into the buildings, make use of cameras where possible, have a School Resource Officer, conduct drills, and have provided staff with training. Chief Bliss has strengthened the Police Department’s response protocols to be even more complete as they investigate potential threats. Our conversation continues as we discuss how we can be more thorough and diligent in the future.

As I told FCS staff after the incident, besides the procedural aspect of emergency response procedures, we must continue to be aware of the relationship and human side of these stories. We need to watch for signs of stress and assure meaningful connections for children at school. We need to make sure that kids see school as a place where they are safe and valued.

I sent my two sons to Fremont City Schools for all of their educational careers. I trusted every morning as I sent my “Little Giants” off to school that the District would do everything it could to keep them safe. Safety will remain a priority.
