Students, please be reminded when a teacher assigns lunch detentions for the 4th and 6th tardies, you will not see an administrator.  You are expected to attend on the days assigned by your teacher.  Failure to serve a detention results in an ISS.Admin.


From Principal Hawkins:  Central Baptist has emailed about our students’ misuse of their parking lot.  There is trash being dumped and students speeding through the parking lot, which presents a safety hazard.  They are also concerned with the number of students entering the wooded area behind their facility and the Highland View church during lunch and after school.

Central Baptist has a long-standing relationship with ORHS and allows our students and staff to park on their campus.  If their property continues to be disrespected by our students, they will no longer allow students and staff to park there.  We are responsible for being good neighbors and taking care of their property as if it were our own.  Please do not cause our school to have this privilege taken away. D. Hawkins

Two more chances to see Radium Girls this Saturday, September 16th @7pm and Sunday, September 17th at 2pm! This gripping drama based on the true story of dial painters who made labor history comes to life on stage in the auditorium. This fast-paced stage play looks at the commercialization of science and the American obsession with health and wealth.

Get your $10 Ticket online at or at the box office one hour before the show.  T. Lloyd
