Spring Sports Updates:
Spring Sports started on Monday of this week - the following are the requirements and the changes for the season.
All athletes need a physical on file, they need one on file for all 4 years of high school.
All students who have not played a sport yet this year need to fill out the green form or form A. Available at the school or online at OTHS Athletic Forms
All students who have a health change since having a physical need to fill out form C or the yellow form. Available at the school or online at OTHS Athletic Forms
All students need to meet the eligibility requirements for OTHS - grades close on April 1st and this will set the eligibility for for quarter. Here is the most current Eligibility Policy - OTHS Eligibility
Pooled testing is no longer a requirement for sports, it is still highly suggested, but not a requirement.
Please understand that this impacts the safeguards for exposure and illness - please reference the most up to date RSU 34 SOP when it comes to exposure and illness protocols - found via this link - SOP Key Points
We will still operate our Return To Play (RTP) Protocols for athletes that are covid positive - these are also highlighted in the SOP Key Points
Mask wearing is optional for athletes, but athlete choice will be supported by OTHS Athletics.
Alternative transportation requests are managed and communicated to the coaches - athletes are to only leave with guardians or have written permission to leave with another adult other than legal guardians.
While we’re emerging from the Omicron surge, and seeing fewer COVID cases in RSU #34, we are seeing increases in other viral illnesses. We want to keep our kids healthy and learning in school. Please remember to keep your child home when they’re sick, and if they have a fever to keep them home for 24 hours after the fever ends (without the use of fever-reducing medications).
Please remember to do the daily screening for COVID symptoms before your child gets on the bus or goes to school: link
If you do a home COVID test for one of our students, please include a picture of the test when you communicate with your school nurse
Selection of Courses 2022-2023

Senior Parents & Students
Yearbook is now offering ads for Senior Parents. If you order online the costs range from $80 to $300 and are available through Josten's website. If you don’t want to use the website, you can email Mrs. Turner for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org .
The last day to submit an ad is May 12, 2022.
Senior Slideshow - as many of you may know during Graduation and/or Awards Night there is a Senior Slideshow that has been played. There has been a continuous trend year after year where less and less parents and students send in photos for this slideshow. Due to this, something that is supposed to highlight an entire group of graduates ends up highlighting a small group of certain students. Christina Turner is ready for you to send in photos for the senior slideshow. She will be collecting them until May 1st. If at this time we do not have seventy percent of the senior class represented in the slideshow we will not be having one this year. We apologize in advance if this happens, however, please use the next few months as an opportunity to encourage students and their parents to submit photos.
The 2022 OTHS Yearbook is now on sale!
The cost is $80
