Spring Assessments

This week is the Science Assessment for all juniors.  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday during period 2 juniors will be taking the assessments. All juniors are required to be present during testing regardless of their schedule each day.  Testing rooms will be posted in the lobby and all juniors should bring their laptops and chargers with them.

Senior Parents

  1. Class Dues are now being collected in the Main Office at OTHS. The cost is $50.00 and covers graduation expenses, including flowers, pictures, setup, etc. Please make payment to RSU #34 by Friday, May 27th.  If your family needs help with this cost, please reach out to their school counselor. 

  2. If your student has received scholarships from their college or outside agency, please bring a copy to the guidance office as soon as possible.   From time to time, we hear from parents who are frustrated that we did not announce a scholarship.  You need to let us know.   We can not announce what we do not know.  Please don’t assume that we know - colleges do not send us copies of acceptance letters nor scholarships. The last day to turn these in is Jun 3, 2022.  We can not guarantee that awards turned in after this date will be included in the ceremony. 

  3. Seniors attending EMCC - there is a summer success academy opportunity for you.  Please see the attached fliers if you are interested.

Other Illness

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

Our last day of school for students in grades 9 thru 11 will be Friday, June 17th.  It will be a half-day, students will be dismissed from OTHS at 12:30pm.
