Week of 5.2.2021
A Message from our Principal, Mr. Pflugrath...
Dear Osbourn Family,
I hope you and your family are enjoying this beautiful weather. The “Walk Through” for our students celebrating Prom was a terrific success yesterday. I would like to thank Mrs. Brady and Ms. Reece for their leadership in making that event happen for our students and all the volunteers that came into work for the event. I enjoyed seeing our students so happy and excited about being back in the building with their friends.
On Monday, we have our second SOL testing day, we will continue for the rest of the month with SOL testing. Students and families have been notified of the specific tests offered for their students. This is also Teacher Appreciation Week as we celebrate our teachers’ dedication to our students. Thank you teachers, it is an honor to work with and for you.
The first Friday in May is designated “School Lunch Hero Day”—meant to celebrate the cafeteria workers and all that they do to fuel our students. This year, it falls on this Friday, May 7th. They have been working nonstop since COVID impacted us. We will celebrate our cafeteria workers on Friday and everyday. Thank you!
As always, thank you for your continued support and please reach out if you have questions.

Pass/Fail Grading Option for Final Course Grades for the 2020-21 School Year
Parents and students please read the revised grading regulation that has been approved for the end of this school year.
A student in a high school credit-bearing course may choose to take a pass or fail final grade in lieu of a final course percentage grade. If a student chooses this option, the student or parent must contact the teacher by May 14, 2021. If a student elects to take a course pass or fail, the pass or fail grade will not be calculated into the student’s cumulative GPA. Students with final course averages of 59% or below will automatically receive a fail in lieu of a final course percentage grade.
If you have questions please feel free to reach out to your teacher or assigned counselor.
From our OHS Clinic...Please read if you have a RISING SENIOR!!!!
Per a new Virginia State Code, all students entering 12th grade for the upcoming school year, 21-22, will be required to have a meningitis vaccination. This is a new state requirement. A letter was sent out and is posted on the OHS website with more detailed information. Please submit proof of this vaccination to the school clinic prior to the start of the school year. If you do not provide this information, your student will not be given a schedule or allowed to begin the school year. Please submit the vaccination records via email to: email@example.com. Contact our nurses in the OHS Clinic with any questions through the end of May at 571-377-7012.

From the 50,000 high scorers nationwide, about 16,000 will be named National Merit Scholarship Program Semifinalists, representing top scorers in each state, and another 34,000 will be commended for their performance on the PSAT. Semifinalists will then have an opportunity to qualify for National Merit Awards. This year, Osbourn High School has two students who will be considered for this distinction. Congratulations to Jacquelyn Hertz and Tyler Husband.
