Privileged Activities



Highlander Families,
Though springtime is still 3 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).

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.

- 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.

- 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.

If you have questions regarding your absences or tardies, please contact Mrs. Wilson in the Attendance Office at [email protected] or myself, and please do not wait until the last minute to begin correcting attendance/tardy issues.

In addition to the minimum $20 price increase on December 1, the price will continue to increase based on availability and additional shipping charges.

There are NO free caps and gowns.  Graduate Service is willing to make a payment plan, however, it must be in place before December 1st.  This could be as little as $10 per month.

All remaining balances on caps/gowns/tassels must be paid in full in order to pick up the items.

Graduate Service’s direct line is 513 272-5890 or you can order online at www.graduateserviceinc.com.  You can also view all items on this website.

The gown is a rental and must be returned immediately following the ceremony.  You will keep the cap and tassel. Take your pictures before the ceremony.

In order to participate in the ceremony, each senior must have all fees paid, attendance in good standing, attend the mandatory practice, and have ordered thru Graduate Service.

Graduation is scheduled for May 22, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. at Fifth Third Arena at The University of Cincinnati.  There is a MANDATORY practice on the morning of the ceremony at 8:30 a.m. at UC.    Due to social distancing guidelines at the University of Cincinnati, there will be a limit of 2 general admission tickets per graduate for the Commencement Ceremony.  Tickets will be distributed to seniors the week of graduation.  A ticket will need to be presented in order to enter the Arena.  Available seats will be marked and will be first come first serve.  Each person in attendance will be required to wear a mask for the event.   No air horns are allowed in the facility.  All bags and purses will be searched prior to entering 5/3 Arena.  We will continue to work closely with UC.   Please continue to check your email for any additional COVID restrictions or updates.  

If you are NOT going to participate in the Commencement Ceremony, please contact Mrs. Matre at [email protected]  to let her know.  You will be able to pick up your diploma at the front office of OHHS starting on June 1, 2021.
