In order to keep students up to date, OHS has created Schoology groups for students by graduation class year (ex: class of 2022). General reminders for students in all grades will be posted on Schoology in the class specific group.
The PSAT/NMSQT will be administered for only 10th and 11th graders on Wednesday, October 13th, 2021. The cost of the PSAT is $18 and payments can be made through School Cash Online. Students are NOT registered for the exam until payment is received. School Cash payments will be accepted from August 16th through September 10th. No payments will be accepted after September 10th. After September 10th, students will not be permitted to register for the exam and no refunds will be processed. For questions regarding the PSAT/NMSQT, please contact Mrs. Pyles at 240-566-9426 or firstname.lastname@example.org..
