Don't forget....






Let's show our unity and commitment,

and let our OTA pride shine. 


Please wear your OTA shirt every Monday

as an affirmation of our willingness to work,

not only on behalf of children,

but on behalf of ourselves and our own families.




For those of you who think you will be retiring this school year, a sample retirement letter that you may use in order to receive payment for your unused sick days as specified on pages 7-8 of our contract was emailed to you. It is can be found by clicking on this link to the  DOCUMENTS page of this website. Be aware of the February 1st deadline for submission. Please be sure to update the letter with information specific to you.


Also, you may want to call the NYS Teachers Retirement System at (800) 348-7298 to arrange a consultation regarding your specific benefits. If you have any questions, please be sure to get in touch with me or another union rep.

Best wishes to all.
