    OTHS Students, Parents/Guardians, and Employees,

    Thank you for your understanding as the District adjusts for the extreme heat blanketing our region.  We always want to put the health and safety of our students first in our decision making.  Adjusting schedules is never easy and we understand there are conflicts that arise when we do so.  We apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate your understanding.  

    With that said, the varsity football game on Friday night has been rescheduled for Saturday morning at 10:00 am.  Weather forecasts are indicating that there will be some relief from the high temperatures and humidity beginning this weekend.  Other extracurricular schedules are also subject to change.  Please visit the OTHS web site for the latest information.

    This email also serves as a reminder of the OTHS EVENT ATTENDANCE POLICY.  This policy can be found in the OTHS Student Handbook and will be strictly enforced.  Again, safety of our students, families, and community remains our top priority.
