Makeup Days and Events Rescheduled Due to Inclement Weather

Please click the More Events link below the embedded Google calendar found on the left to keep up to date on all event changes at OLHS. Also follow @OceanLakesHS, @OLHS_SCA, and @MSAOLHS on Twitter for frequent updates.

The makeup plan for school days missed CURRENTLY includes:

  • Jan. 29 (Staff Day) will make up time lost Jan. 4
  • Feb. 19 (Presidents' Day) will make up time lost Jan. 5
  • Jan. 8 will not be made up by students; missed time for employees will be made up through a flexible schedule or use of approved leave.
  • adding 15 minutes to the end of the school day Feb. 12 - May 4 to make up the remaining instructional days lost due to snow in January.

For high school students, Jan. 29 and Feb. 19 will be a "C" Day, where they will attend all of their classes during the day instead of following the A/B block schedule. For middle school students on block schedules, Jan. 29 will be an "A" Day and Feb. 19 will be a "B" Day.

Given the length of time out of school, the division will also extend the first semester from Friday, Jan. 26 to Friday, Feb. 2. Report cards for the second nine weeks and first semester will be sent home Tuesday, Feb. 13. 

The 2017-2018 school calendar has been updated to include the makeup days and semester changes. The updated calendar is available on www.vbschools.com.

Attendance Reminders

All Day Excuse Notes:
If a student is ever absent, notes (e-mail or written) should be provided to the attendance office within three days of returning from the absence, as we do not accept absence reports over the phone. For planned multi-day absences (i.e. vacation), at least a week prior, students need to submit a form requesting approval from the principal.

If students arrive late to school, they must report to the attendance office to properly check in (as opposed to going directly to class).

Early Release:
For 11th and 12th-grade student early dismissals, students bring a note from their parent/guardian (e-mail or written) to the security desk BEFORE 7:20 a.m. The note must have a telephone number where a parent/guardian can be reached to verify the early release. If we cannot confirm with a parent/guardian, the student will not be released. Requests provided after 7:20 a.m. are allowed only with extenuating circumstances. No early release requests will be taken over the phone unless there are extenuating circumstances. 9th and 10th-grade students are only approved for dismissal if a parent/guardian comes into the building to sign them out. Parents may send a note (e-mail or written) to the security desk BEFORE 7:20 a.m. to have their students waiting at the Attendance Office at the approved dismissal time (as opposed to having to call into the student's classroom for release to the Attendance Office).

Drivers' Education

ATTENTION all 10th, 11th, and 12th graders who have Virginia permits and have passed classroom Drivers Ed. and /or are enrolled in Classroom Drivers Ed., and are interested in taking the Behind the Wheel at OLHS this year, you can get your application in guidance or from Ms. Carey, take it home, fill it out and make sure a parent is aware that you are interested in taking BTW. You may return the forms to Ms. Carey or the guidance office. For more information about Behind the Wheel visit the BTW site at www.oceanlakeshs.vbschools.com/pages/btw/

Attention student drivers and passengers

Driving to school is one of the privileges of a high school student, and as a privilege it can be removed. Please be advised safety is the schools number one priority for you. As drivers you are responsible for the safe operation of your vehicle as well as the safety of your passengers. Any unsafe activity may result in loss of your parking privileges and additional discipline consequences may apply.
