Stuff You Need to Know





Friday we will be following bell schedule G. Make sure you arrive to school on time! 1st period starts at 8:32 and 2nd period starts at 8:59.


Sophomores, juniors and seniors: Did you have perfect attendance last year? If you’re not sure, check the bulletin board outside the deans’ office for your name. If you see your name on the perfect attendance list, see Mrs. Balthazor, in the deans’ office, for your reward! You will also be entered into a raffle for a Frankie’s gift certificate!


When you know you’re going to be absent, tardy or need to sign out early, please complete and turn in a pre-arranged absence form. You can pick one up in the deans’ office or print it from the OLCHS website.


When you’re late to school or have a pass to be dismissed early, ALWAYS sign in and sign out at the attendance window. Failure to do so, may result in discipline.
