Title 1: Family Engagement Plan: please let us know if you are interested in being a part of this team.  Want to impact OHS?  Get involved and attend our parent events throughout the year! Our first meeting is August 30th @ 4:00pm in the OHS Media Center.  Email Mrs. Goggans for more information.

 

Bus Information: Back to School Information Guide with Bus Routes

 

Parking Information: Parking is sold during lunches, however remind students that busing information will take priority, especially the 1st few days of school.

Student Parking Form

Drug Testing Form

 

Schedules (6-class minimum):

If you are taking off-campus Dual Enrolment Classes, they count (both semesters). 

If you take or took DCT and you have a job, we can work those hours into your schedule also.  You must have documentation of a job (time sheets, pay stubs) to be eligible. Still plenty of room in electives; get that 4th science credit or 5th math credit for a cord at graduation.

 

OHS SAC: (School Advisory Committee):

Will meet once a month starting in September to recap events, sharing school data, and gain perspective to Moving OHS Forward.  Send me an email if you would like to be on the committee or just come and listen to the meetings.  More info to come.

 

Please support our Back Pack Program: A Student-Led Mission to End Hunger, we will need your votes when the campaign starts on August 15th.  A $25,000 grant is up for grabs!

 

Interested in Girls Golf?

Girls Golf meeting in 4-210 after school on Tuesday August 14th.  Athletes need to complete the athletic packet on registermyathlete.com and have an up to date physical. No experience required!
