Nobody renamed any school. Do you really have to talk in circles? This issue is too serious to be arguing about the small stuff and name calling. What we need to do is wait. See how the budgets in both schools are. Keep options open. If we have to do as Jenn Frasier said at every meeting "We can revisit this issue next year."
I for one feel that we at OE are better served with a merge with St. Johnsville. We already had merged sports with Dolgeville. They took over and every practice was at the Dolgeville athletic fields. Games were also. Many of our athletes sat on the bench or were on JV teams in their junior and senios years. As I recall many problems.
On the other hand students from both St. Johnsville and Oppenheim-Ephratah got along very well. It appears it was the adults that are positioning over power and control, that really do not have the children's best interests at heart.So wait, study, watch, stay informed at both schools, watch the taxes increase at OE. The President of our board has alreday said that he would consider a budget that will go over the tax cap.{Oh Wait! the no voters were promised that taxes would go up and possibly double if we merged.} The public owes it to our children and grandchildren to really stay informed. Do not let the people in power manipulate you with their half truths, get the facts.
Remember we at OE had over 800 come out to vote. It seems that if we united we might be able to elect people to a merged board in a new district and both schools would be able to maintain local control of education in their communities. Instead of losing it to other schools as they position themselves to either take us over in the future through annexation, merge or just losing control by tuitioning out our 9-12.

All of you might want to suck it up, take the high road, get over it and Move On. So what the merger didn't pass! It isn't the end of the world and there are other options for the children in the area, but the PARENts Must Grow up and act their age and do for their children versus _itching about what they can't change. Move On!!! I own property in both districts and vote in StJ - I voted yes - but after reading all of these ongoing posts certainly from OE parents and from St J people also......I would vote NO Now..... Let OE try to merge activities with Dville- they will bitch again about their children sitting the bench!!! But some people just have to bitch about something and majority of OE people fit that bill. Let them drown. StJ put all this BS into something productive to help yourselves! It is a school worth saving so do something constructive versus this destructive......

A school worth saving? That's hilarious neither school is worth anything and the students that go there will end up in dead end jobs just like their parents. All the people can keep deluding themselves all they like it doesn't change that both towns are shit and both schools are well on the way to being just like the towns.

Why should DCS give up anything? Coaches, playing time, home fields or team name. We dont need to merge with OE . we just let you play. You cant come to DSC and start changing things that work for the residence there. Wake up!
