Attendance Notes

Just a reminder that any time you leave campus, even if you plan to come back in the day, you must be signed out of the office by yourself or a parent. If you leave campus for any reason without signing out, you are considered truant! Going to your car is considered off campus, so please stop by the office and let us know you need something from your car to be excused.

Why? The main reason is in the event of an emergency, if we think you are here and then something happens and you are 'missing', we send a team out searching for you. You can imagine the panic that could cause. For that reason, please sign out with us!

Tardy Notes

5 Tardies = Detentions! Why do we have to take it seriously when you arrive late to class?

When you are tardy it disrupts the class who have begun their lesson already and you can miss instructions as well. Also, teachers take attendance right away so we can make sure all of you are here and where you belong as that is our responsibility. Arriving late makes a few people have to work in reverse for you and it is disruptive. If you have an excused tardy then we are very accommodating. When you wander in late with no reason, those are unnecessary. Warning bell rings at 7:38 and you must be IN CLASS at 7:45.

Parking Notes

If you drive to school, you MUST have a parking pass in your window to park on campus. Please come to the office for a form and pass. Your first sticker is free and any additional or lost stickers are $2 each. This is a MUST! No parking sticker = a ticket! Parking outside of the student lot = a ticket! Ticket fines (each) are as follows:

  • Ticket #1 $10
  • Ticket #2 $20
  • Ticket #3+ each $30

Pay for school items - yearbooks, ASB card, any club fees:

OHS Dress Code

As you are back to school shopping, we would like to point out a page in our 2022/2023 Student Handbook about our Dress Code. Helping families understand that we have a code and the 'why' behind it should help make sure your child arrives ready to learn. If there are any questions, please reach out!
