New Informational Sign at Otter Valley

Union Middle and High School

This spring saw the installation of a new informational sign at the front of Otter Valley Union Middle and High School.  After more than twenty years the old sign had finally broken down and became too difficult to maintain.  Using packing tape to attach letters to the face of the sign became a slow, extremely difficult ritual in order to keep the community informed about upcoming events at Otter Valley. We are proud of the many activities and events that our students participate in and we felt strongly that it was time for us to upgrade our system.

We began investigating a new sign in June 2015 with the Otter Valley Union High School Finance Building and Grounds committee.  Over the next 18 months we researched companies that designed and installed signs, viewed signs that other schools had installed, such as Woodstock Middle and High School and Mt. Abraham Middle and High School, and learned about the Town of Brandon’s regulations regarding the installation and use of a digital electronic sign.  Working with Anna Scheck, the Town of Brandon’s Code Enforcement Officer, we received a permit on December 14, 2016, to construct the new sign.  The Finance Building and Grounds Committee voted to allow us to spend no more than $25,000 from the school’s Capital Reserve Fund to purchase and install the new sign.  The sign’s cost came in below the allocated figure by the school board.  

“Each day we learn new ways to use the sign and to share information regarding school activities.” states James Avery, OVUHS Principal.  “A number of students and community members have shared with me how much they like the new sign and are happy to see how it has improved the look of the school.”

Throughout the year the Booster Club manages and staffs the outside and inside concession stand through parent volunteers. The winter months are especially busy and we always need help.
