Intersession will be held March 11-14 from 8:00 to 3:30. Students may sign up for the morning session (8 to 11:30) or the afternoon session (12:00 to 3:30) or both. Intersession applications are available in the main office and the counseling office and must be signed by the teacher of the course and the parent. Students may recover failing grades for up to two courses from Term 3 or Term 2 (if they passed Term 3). ORHS is also offering an ACT prep class for intersession just in time for the ACT on April 2. ACT prep is available on a first come first served basis, and we will fill the a.m. session first.

For the first time ever, ORHS will be offering bus transportation for intersession. If students need transportation, their forms are due by Wednesday at noon, otherwise, the forms may be turned in by Thursday at noon. Buses will run in the morning and the afternoon only. There will be no drop off after the first session. Intersession is an important opportunity for students to get their grades on track and work toward earning their credits.
