Students hoping to avoid two of the prep day stops and a potentially long line can have their school pictures for the yearbook taken and new O'Connor Student IDs made Aug. 7 and 10 in the school library. Any student is welcomed but 9th graders are especially encouraged since all freshmen will need a new ID. We will be open to do both at the following times: Mon., Aug. 7, 8-11:30 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. and Thurs., Aug. 10, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. There is no charge for a student's first high school ID but students requiring a replacement will be charged $5. There is no charge to have your photo taken for the yearbook, but if you'd like to purchase school pictures, here's the order form: CLICK HERE. Remember to be in school dress code from your waist up or we will be unable to take your photo.

Testing will begin promptly at 8 a.m. each day and all testing will be done online. Please remember the school dress code is in effect for testing too so shorts are not allowed. English 1 and English 2 are five hour tests so students will have until 1 p.m. to finish. Algebra 1, Biology, and US History tests are 4 hour tests and will end at noon each day. Click HERE for the EOC retesting bus schedule. Because all EOC retests are online, we encourage students testing to stop by school library on Thursday at 10 a.m. for a brief tutorial about the online testing program and the program tools. Students unavailable for the tutorial should still plan to test next week. Call 210-397-4824 if you have questions, and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
