The Gettysburg Times inaccurately reported the facts by mistake after the May 15th, 2017 board meeting. There were two executive sessions at the school board meeting to discuss different matters. The first was to listen to public comments about the student who made an inappropriate comment. The second was to discuss a disciplinary issue involving an elementary student and a personnel matter. The incidents were completely separate.
I am communicating to you as a father and the Superintendent of Schools about a difficult issue. Today, you may have heard about charges being filed against a Littlestown employee, Mr. Oaster. The Littlestown Area School District is saddened by the allegations and charges pending. My heart goes out to any person indirectly or directly affected by the conduct.
A graduating senior demonstrating the most overall self-improvement culminating in his or her senior year is awarded $500. A $100 cash award will be given to the four runners up. The award money may be used as the recipient wishes.
Two years ago we released a community survey to gain insights from you about our schools. We used your feedback to make improvements throughout each grade level and school. We are very hopeful you have seen, heard about, or personally experienced the improvement efforts of everyone to make Littlestown a World Class School and Community. Please take about 10 minutes of your time and complete the Community Survey by May 12th, 2017. We need to know you are seeing a difference. Thank you!
