Hello, O'Hara Families!

We hope you are all having a wonderful summer and making many happy memories. While the school year still feels somewhat distant, we wanted to take this opportunity to share some important updates with you regarding OSHA/ODE requirements for the 2021-2022 school year.

On June 20, 2021 OSHA lifted the rules regarding face coverings and social distancing as part of their COVID-19 protocols. You can view a full statement from their website here. Initial drafts of new ODE guidelines have been released. You can view them, along with a press release, here. We expect more changes to come in the next several weeks, along with updates to CDC guidance.  

We do know that students will be in school full-time, 5 days per week.

We want to thank you all for your patience and support as we have navigated the pandemic over the last 16 months. We continue to remain vigilant in doing what is best for the safety and comfort of our students. As things progress this summer, we hope to have more concrete information about what our 2021-2022 school year will look like. Since many government regulations are still not final, we have not made any official decisions on the status of our COVID protocols for the 2021-2022 school year. We will continue to keep everyone informed as quickly as possible.

Thank you again for your patience and support. We look forward to seeing all of our families back in the building this Fall.


Sincerely,

Tammy Conway

UPDATES AND REMINDERS
GOSPEL T-SHIRT ORDERS

Reminder to order your Gospel T-Shirts for next year. Our 2021-2022 Gospel T-Shirts quote Romans 8:31

"If God is for us,
then who can be against us."
Romans 8:31

Gospel T-Shirts are worn with jeans on specific special dress days throughout the school year, and it is wonderful to see every child in the building promoting such a positive message of faith.

Order your Gospel T-Shirts for the 21-22 school year here. Funds from Gospel T-Shirt sales go towards O'Hara's Student Council, and early orders help promote smooth distribution and delivery in the Fall. Order today!
2021-22 SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS

School supply lists for the 2021-22 school year are now available on our website.

O'Hara has partnered with Bright SchoolKitz this year to make online ordering of school supplies much easier for parents and families. Each list offers the option "click here to order." If you select this option you will be taken to the Bright SchoolKItz website where you can easily have all of your student's classroom items ordered at once and delivered to your home. 
MIDDLE SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL

We are very excited to announce that we WILL have middle school volleyball for the fall of 2021! At this time, we are working to collect information and gauge interest in the season. The number of young ladies interested in playing will determine the number of teams we have. We usually guarantee 7th and 8th graders space on the teams and will open it up to 6th graders if space allows.

The season runs from the beginning of September to mid-October. Once games begin they are typically Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We will open for official registration in mid-August.

If your daughter is interested in playing volleyball for O’Hara during the fall of 2021, please fill out this survey. If you have questions please contact Mrs. Tammy Conway (Head Coach) or Mr. Chris Milliron (Athletic Director). 

REMINDER: Students must have a current physical on file at the school to participate in school sports. Physicals are good for two years. Please remember to submit your sports physical as soon as possible. Click here to download the required form to take with you to the appointment. Please contact Mrs. Whitford if you would like to verify the date of the physical form we have on file for your student(s).
