Nut-free Information

Parking, Drop-off, and Curb Safety

Plan your route, learn where street parking is available, and locate drop-off zones. Prepare for the first few weeks of school, when more parents drop off, and please LEAVE PLENTY OF TIME to find street parking and to walk the few blocks to school. Prioritize SAFETY above ALL ELSE. 

Volunteer at Otis

Otis encourages--and relies on--parent volunteers. New families can read about volunteer requirements here. Field trips, especially in the lower grades, depend on parent drivers and chaperones; driving requires fingerprint clearance, which can take six weeks to complete, and completion of a form regarding insurance coverage.
