Majority of information shared with seniors is done through senior social studies classes or if you are NMSC or RUNNING START, it would be during your assigned HOMEROOM presentations or you will have to meet with your A-Z alpha counselor. (Please check in with Mr. Bonaldo for dates/times of RS Homeroom)

Freedom Farm students without Senior Social Students at OHS campus will have a special session on site at the Farm

 

These informative LARGE GROUP presentations are VERY IMPORTANT to provide you added support & direction during senior year.  We DO NOT HAVE TIME to provide every senior an individualized personal re-cap of what was missed, we are working with over 2,100 students this year grades 9-12. Replies to your questions that were answered during these sessions will NOT be prioritized to respond to.  PLEASE make every effort to attend these presentations or find a peer to share the information you may have missed.
