Hello, Hawk families;

Oregon High School students received their Chromebooks.  We are now one-to-one; that is, every student has their own device.  We expect students to use the school-issued Chromebook.  The only exception to this are seniors in dual credit/college courses.  They may use their own devices until the end of the first semester.  We ask that students use school district devices for safety and liability purposes.  

I have attached a document offering a Protection Plan for your child's Chromebook.  Any damage to Chromebooks is the responsibility of families.  The Protection Plan would help cover potential accidents.  

Now that we are one-to-one, you can expect to see more utilization of technology in instruction and assignments.  The Chromebook that is issued to your student will be theirs for the rest of their school career.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  

Best regards, 

Dr. Heidi Deininger, 

Principal, Oregon High School, Oregon, IL

One-to-one Protection Plan

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the IL State Board of Education has implemented a remote application process for work permits. This means students will no longer apply for a permit in the OHS main office. You can view the requirements and how to get started on the remote application process at: . As a reminder, students who are 14-15 years old must obtain a work permit prior to starting employment.

One of the required documents is a signed Principal’s Statement verifying a student is active and in good standing academically while school is in session (waived during summer months). To request a Principal’s Statement, students will need to contact the main office.

customer wrong poster page 001Oregon High School is performing their fall play The Customer is Always Wrong from October 16-18th in the Oregon High School auditorium. Show times are 7pm on the 16th, 2pm and 7pm on the 17th, and 1pm and 4pm on the 18th. The Customer is Always Wrong, written by Ian McWethy, follows 5 different high school students through their first jobs. At first, it doesn't seem like rocket science to babysit, wait tables, pass out flyers, work at a movie theater, or be a telemarketer, but it's not long before they find out that in the minimum-wage world, the customer is king… a brutal, ruthless king. This funny, biting comedy is an ode to anyone who's ever had to tell the worst customer in the world to "have a nice day."

OHS’s fall play is unique to other productions because it is entirely student-led. This means that student leaders are in charge of choosing the play, directing rehearsals, building the set, and organizing for the community. This year’s play is directed by Claudia Reckamp and produced by Lydia Cermak. The cast has been rehearsing since the beginning of school, so come see the hard work they have put in for this enjoyable comedy on October 16th, 17th, and 18th!
