**Parents are urged to have students use district transportation on days that inclement weather is predicted!

Please note the following-
We receive a large number of phone call and email requests from parents to have their students leave early on "bad weather" days. COHS will dismiss student drivers on these days when their school district is dismissed. For your children's safety, please do not permit them to drive to school on days when the weather forecast calls for inclement weather. School bus transportation is the safest choice.

Please instruct and practice driving with your student in inclement weather. Provide proper clearing tools, safety items and educate the young driver on laws in reference to clearing the vehicle.

Student drivers will be permitted to leave with a sibling. Students driving to/from school as a passenger should make arrangements on inclement weather days to take district transport.

Only students with registered vehicles will be permitted to leave when drivers are dismissed.

Dual Enrollment Opportunity
Dear Cardinal O’Hara Family,
Delaware County Community College (DCCC) and Cardinal O’Hara High School are partnering to offer eligible COHS students the opportunity to enroll in college courses and earn college credits while in high school. These classes are taught at Delaware County Community College in a traditional classroom setting or online.

Finance Office
Senior parents:  Transcripts can only be sent by the Guidance Office if your FACTS account is up to date. Please check your FACTS account each month to prevent any delays in your child's college application process. Please make payments in a timely manner.

All parents:  Please check your FACTS account and make payment  ASAP  if you are past due. After 90 days, the Diocese requires us to review past due accounts and follow up with student withdrawals. Just a reminder that Friday is the last day of the first quarter.

Financial aid applications for 2020-2021 opened on October 1, 2019, on the FACTS Management website.
