Final Exam Schedule

June is quickly approaching which brings about exams and the end of the school year. This year, exams will take place Friday, June 15th and Monday, June 18 – Wednesday, June 20.  The last day of school will be June 20th with dismissal at 12:10.  Exams can often be a stressful time for students as they reflect on their learning.  It is important to allow students time and supports to prepare for their exams.  

ORHS will have relearning and review days on June 13th and 14th.    The Wednesday and Thursday prior to exam week students will follow their normal schedule but will be engaged in relearning, review and enrichment.  No tests, quizzes and other assessments/summatives are to be given and no new material is to be taught.  New assessments/summatives do not include administering a section of an exam (oral exams in WL or project presentations).  This is an opportunity for student relearning, review and enrichment.  This is also an opportunity for teachers to support and guide students as they prepare for their exams.
