Dear Parents and Students:
My name is Dave Eastin, I am very honored and proud to be the superintendent of Otis School District. Otis has such a rich history of academic and athletic success, I look forward to forging partnerships with all of you that will help continue and enhance this success.
I am married to my wonderful wife Nichole, she is the Business manager at Las Animas School District. I have two children: Brittni is 28 years old and is teaching 3rd grade in Lamar, CO. Caden is 22 years old and is finishing up his Bachelor’s degree in Health/Physical Education at CSU-Pueblo. My Father John taught Art for 32 years, education is obviously a huge part of our family dynamic.
The Covid-19 pandemic has pushed us into a new normal of how we think, act, and work with each other. I am optimistic that we can adapt and overcome any and all barriers that we face as a school and a community. I would ask for your continued patience as we move closer to reopening our school. I can assure you that we are working very hard with other local school districts, the state and local health departments, CDE, CDC, and the Governor’s office to develop plans that reopen our school in a safe and efficient way. Our goal is to disseminate our approved plans for reopening as soon as possible. This will allow all parents, students, and community members time to review and understand these plans of action. We will need your support and assistance with our approved plans in order to help our students succeed.
I am excited to meet and work with all of you. My mission is to strive for student success on a daily basis, I look forward to partnering with you all so that we can strive for this endeavor together.
Otis School District Superintendent
