MORP, Prom and Graduation - Can you attend?

Posted on: February 4, 2020 11:00 am

Privileged Activities



Though springtime is still 2 months away, it will be here before we know it.  Below is information concerning privileged after-school activities/dances in relation to school attendance and discipline.  Please take the time to review this information and contact me with any questions.

Discipline - any student suspended during the quarter of a privileged activity is not eligible to attend such activity (MORP is in the 3rd Quarter, both Prom and Graduation are in the 4th Quarter). In addition, any student suspended with a recommendation for expulsion at any point during the year is ineligible to attend a privileged activity.

Unexcused Absences and Tardies - Any unexcused absences, and tardies greater than 2, will result in loss of school-related privileges, unless corrected by one of the provisions listed below.

Provisions to Correct Unexcused Absences and Tardies

1. Attend Friday School - 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Fridays. Simply show up to room 126 on time and sign-in.

- ONE Friday school served will make-up 1 unexcused absence or 4 tardies

2. Attend Tuesday or Thursday School - 3:00 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Simply show up on time to room 339 and sign-in.

- ONE Tu/Th school served will make-up 2 tardies or ½ unexcused day

3. Complete Volunteer Work - Students can organize a time to do volunteer work outside of OHHS. The volunteer work must be completed with a nonprofit or recognized charitable organization.

- Each hour of volunteer work will make-up ½ unexcused day or 2 tardies.

- These hours MUST be documented on letterhead from the organization only (not a parent letter). The letter must include the name of the person from the organization, hours volunteered, and a phone number where we can call to verify the hours. Opportunities exist through organizations such as food pantries, churches, or another registered non-profit organization.

Students CANNOT make-up unexcused absences beyond 10 and/or tardies beyond 20. Therefore, students with unexcused absences beyond 10 and tardies beyond 20 are NOT eligible to participate in privileged activities.
