Last week all O'Connor Juniors received this College Prep information in their English classes. Click HERE to download the letter. To enroll in college-awarding courses after graduating from high school, students must be deemed college ready. This is done using either an SAT score, an ACT score, or the TSI test. Students who don't demonstrate college readiness using one of those methods may also do so by successfully completing a college prep English class or a college prep math class during their senior year here at OHS. To get more information about qualifying scores, the college prep courses students can take next year, and how to enroll, review the letter. If you have questions, contact your son or daughter's counselor at 397-4832. If you wish to enroll your son or daughter in one or both courses for next year, follow the directions in the letter.

Students at OHS will take semester exams Monday, June 1 through Thursday, June 4. For a detailed schedule with times, click the link "Spring Semester Exam Schedule" on the right under Panther Alerts. 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.
