Dear Seniors and Parents of Seniors, The State Department of Education in Idaho has waived the graduation requirement of Senior Projects for the 2019-2020 school year. Oakley High School is committed to being flexible and understanding as we are still assisting students receive the best education possible given the current circumstances. Please note that seniors who are currently in the Senior Project class for second semester will still need to complete the requirements for the course and attain a passing grade, based on the criteria used during the first semester. Seniors that completed the Senior Project class during first semester will need to turn in their portfolios, with any updated information, to Mrs. Goddard. However, the end-of-year community presentations have been canceled and are not required in any form. One of the main purposes for the Senior Project is to have “a Master’s Thesis of a student’s school experience.” Some students may choose to complete their projects in full and we support those who want to do so. Any students who wish to present their final project via video are welcome to record it, following state social distancing guidelines, and submit it to the school. Thank you, Seniors and Parents of Seniors, at this time as we all work together in these difficult situations set before us. We are hopeful in seeing you be able to keep working hard this school year and working towards graduation. We are anticipating to hold graduation still at the scheduled day, but this pandemic has changed so many times the normal way we do things. At this point in time, the state board of education has announced that schools will be closed until the end of the year, unless certain regional health criteria is met district by district for a safe return. Please do not hesitate to ask us any questions during this time. We are happy to help. Sincerely, Mr. Payne
Light the Stadium this Friday April 10th
This coming Friday April 10th, Oakley High School will be showing support to our senior athletes and Spring sport athletes who are not able to compete due to the health pandemic. At 8:20 pm Oakley High School will turn our stadium lights on as a message to our senior athletes and Spring sport athletes that we are thinking about them and recognize their hard work over their careers. We hope the light will remind them that there will be a time that we can play sports again. Please show your support for our senior athletes and Spring sport athletes by driving by our field. We recognize the impact and lessons we learn from athletics and competition and hope that we may all return to athletics as soon as is safe. Thank you.
To Parents and Students of OHS
Good afternoon parents and students of Oakley Jr/Sr High School. Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and diligence in this final quarter of the 2019-2020 school year. I wanted to take the time to inform you that for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, we are in a soft closure. This means that Oakley Jr/Sr High School is committed to give access to your students and provide educational opportunities for your student for the remainder of the school year. This also means that we will continue to take attendance each day and continue with the remote learning through computer online formats of Google Classroom and through packets when necessary.
It is vital that students still turn in work to improve their grades and progress for the remainder of the year. We are still keeping track of grades and progress for graduation. These unprecedented times have posed many challenges and we are working through them all together.
The operating hours of Oakley Jr/Sr. High School are from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM Monday through Friday.
If you are not able to reach someone at the school, please call and leave a message or you can contact through email to one of the teachers or front office staff.
We still have Chromebooks available if students need one to work from home. Please call the school ahead of time to pick up a chrome book to make sure someone is at the school to meet you just outside of the building.
Again, thank you parents and students for all of your efforts at this difficult time. If you have any questions, please ask. Have a great week and stay healthy.
