• Principal’s Report 2024

     

     
     

    Welcome to the new year – 2024 and the start of the second semester, which began on Monday, January 8th. Positive news received since the last publication of this newsletter is that our school received an “A” grade for the 11th straight year (no grades were given in 2020). OFHS also had the highest number of points earned in all scored areas out of all Pinellas County High Schools. We were also informed that our 2023 graduation rate was 99.8%, which was also the highest in our district. OFHS was recognized by the U.S. News and World Reports as a top 100 high school in the state of Florida. This marks the 6th straight year we have received this very prestigious honor.  

    Parents, when you need to change your phone number or your email address, you must use your parent Focus account. Go to the student reservation tab and click “change phone and e-mail address only.” You can also change your home address information as needed by utilizing your parent log-in credentials and clicking the “change of address” tab. 

    On Tuesday, March 5th, ALL juniors will be taking the digital SAT at our school during the school day. It is very important that all 11th grade students bring their fully charged computers to school on March 5th. 

    Applications for PCS summer camps are underway. The district is offering nearly 30 summer camps, ranging from STEM to The Arts to career exploration. Most summer camps will take place in July. Families can learn more and find a link to apply at www.pcsb.org/summpercamps.

    Our winter sports seasons have almost all wrapped up. I want to thank all of our coaches and student athletes for having successful seasons in their respective sports.  

    Spring sports are now underway. Please come out and support our softball, baseball, boys’ and girls’ track and field, girls flag football and boys and girls lacrosse teams.
