Oak Ridge High School's Weekly Newsletter

From the Principal

Good morning,


The new nine weeks starts today. Here are a few things I have learned from the first nine weeks of school:

  • Our teachers and students are working through new challenges to make education a priority.
  • Masks are effective in reducing the risk of spreading COVID-19. Of the 7 positive student cases we have had reported to us, the use of masks have significantly reduced the requirement that students quarantine.
  • Students that are remote learning are 52% more likely to fail a class than students who are in-person learning.
  • Reducing in size as a campus (from 4400 students three years ago to 2500 this year) has helped make our procedures for educating students during COVID-19 more feasible as a campus.


I know we are not perfect and we are continuing to work and improve all we do. Some of the changes you will see in the next weeks are teacher changes for students who are in person and virtual. Currently our staff is teaching in both worlds - but we are going to try and create some sections of pure remote learning and pure in-person learning. I expect these changes to be complete by the start of next week.


Thanks for making this year work out as well as it has. I appreciate your efforts as parents and I am excited to start the second quarter of the year.


My best,


AJ LiVecchi, Principal

Oak Ridge Senior High School
