Assistant Principal's Message

Dear Parent/Guardian/Student: 


Welcome to Otto Shortell Middle School (OSMS)! 

I continue to feel honored as I enter my sixth year here in Oneida serving as the Assistant Principal at OSMS. I am excited to be a part of an exemplary learning community where dedicated staff, teachers, and parents, collaboratively work together to ensure that all students reach their maximum potential in becoming life-long learners.

It is our shared mission to create a collaborative learning community based on mutual respect and the belief that all students who enter OSMS can and will demonstrate academic progress and personal growth. OSMS School provides a safe, nurturing and student-centered environment in which our students can grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Our students are focused on always doing their “personal best.” Staff members are dedicated and committed to the success of every child.

Parental involvement is a vital aspect in increasing student achievement, and our staff invites all parents and family members to be active and involved participants of our learning community. We host our Parent Advisory meetings every other month and look forward to hearing your feedback in order to work collaboratively in problem-solving to make our school even better for our students.

I look forward to working with you this school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or just to introduce yourself. I am here to support our middle school community and maintain a high level of rigor and achievement by our students.  

Sincerely yours,


Mandi Larson
Assistant Principal
