Beginning July 1, 2018:
ALL students in grades K-12 must show proof of having received two doses of Hepatitis A vaccine to attend school.
All students age 16 and older must show proof of having received two doses of Meningococcal ACWY vaccine (also called MenACWY or Meningitis Booster) to attend school. This is required even if the student received the booster between the ages of 11 and 15.

“I’m excited to be coming home to OHS. It’s an honor to coach my alma matter,” said Brad Schmied, OHS swim coach.
Schmied graduated from OHS in 1991. He earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree from UL in 1996.
