OTTUMWA — Ottumwa Community Schools will not hold classes on Friday. Teachers will use this time to attend professional development in their respective buildings and/or departments. This time allows teachers to stay current in their field; use research in planning new programs; design, implement, evaluate new curricula and strategies; learn to integrate technology into curriculum and instruction; and evaluate if students are learning what is being taught.
The district’s Prime Time Youth Care program will operate at Liberty Elementary from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. This fee-based program provides enriching activities for students in grades K-6. For more information, contact Kim Lemonds at 641-684-6597 ext. 138 or ext. 180.
