Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will also be early release days for students. The dismissal bell will ring at noon and a sack lunch will be available from noon to 12:30 p.m. for student purchase. Buses will run at 12:30 p.m. each early release day. As the school year comes to a close, it's important that students clear all campus obligations to include fines and fees and return all OHS property to include textbooks, library books, equipment and uniforms. Not clearing these obligations could affect a student's program status or schedule of courses for next year.
