Oak Ridge High School Update


Just a quick note on this long weekend. Enjoy the break! We will see you back on Tuesday.

Prom is Saturday night, 4/23. Seniors must pay senior dues to attend prom. They can be purchased on school cash.

Guests tickets must also be purchased through school cash and must be bought in conjunction with a senior who is attending. Seniors MAY NOT go to prom as a guest of another senior.

There will not be door sales, so please make sure to take care of these purchases this week.

The week after prom is a normal school week, but AP Exams and EOC Testing begins the first week of May.

Seniors will have late arrival on May 4, 2022 and need to be at school by 10:30. The rest of school will be on a normal bell schedule unless students are testing.

Thanks and again have a restful weekend,
