Dr. Dudley's Message Home - Tuesday, December 11th

Students will continue to go outside for recess, so please be sure they dress warmly as the weather gets chilly.

The deadline to sign up for the OHS Drama Club is Friday, Dec. 14. Please go to https://ohspts.org/drama-club/ to register.

We want to thank all the volunteers who helped out in the Holiday Store last week.

The last day of school before the holiday recess is Friday, December 21st. It is a full day of school, and classes will resume on Wednesday, January 2nd.

We have had incidents of students using inappropriate words towards others. The student often does not even know the meaning of what was said, and states it was heard/seen on social media. We all need to be mindful of how children utilize social media, and a short guide is attached. The school and PTA are also examining the possibility of a presentation for parents about on-line safety.Social Media Advice.docx
