Substitute Teachers Needed at OHS

As we roll into the fall and winter months, the need for substitute teachers remains a concern here at OHS. Last year when we reached out to our Storm Community parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, all rallied and came through for us in such amazing ways!


We are again having a difficult time finding adequate substitute teachers for our students. If you or someone you know is interested in helping to cover classes at OHS and ONLY OHS please complete the interest form below. Individuals would need to complete the substitute teacher application on the WASD website (linked below), complete fingerprinting, and pass a background check. These are all things we can help fast-track when you fill out the interest form.


Thank you for being part of our Storm Community and for helping the students and staff navigate the post-pandemic issues we continue to face here at OHS.


Sincerely,

OHS Administration
