Dual Enrollment Informational Meeting

All parents and students involved in OCHS Dual Enrollment classes: As you may know, the state has changed the way money is distributed to schools for use in dual enrollment classes. This is going to have a slight impact on what students are required to pay to be enrolled in these dual enrollment classes this fall.


The administration of OCHS and the Owen County Schools have worked to make the impact of these changes as minimal as possible. We would like to explain these changes and their impact at a meeting with parents and students who are taking dual enrollment classes. This meeting will be held on Monday, August 1st at 6:00pm at the OCHS auditorium. Please make plans to attend; we will discuss the cost of dual enrollment classes, the use of the new state dual enrollment scholarship and how you can benefit from taking dual enrollment classes before you graduate from high school.


We hope to see students and parents on Monday, August 1st at 6:00pm!

Schedule changes for the 2016-17 school year

The Owen County High School counseling office will be open on Wednesday, July 27 and Thursday, July 28 to discuss schedule changes with students and parents.  The office will be open 9-12 and 1-3; Mr. Doug Wainscott will be glad to answer questions and help students with scheduling decisions for the coming year.


The current last day of school is Thursday, May 26th.  That is, if school does not have to be closed any more for inclement weather.  Should school have to be closed for three days or more between now and Spring Break, then the first two days (April 4 & 5) of the planned Spring Break will be used to make up the missed days.  Hopefully, we will miss no more days!

Update for OCHS Students on the Beginning of the 2016-17 School Year

A couple of reminders and updates for students as we begin our new school year:


1. Please remember that students need to abide by the Owen County Schools dress code, including no hat wearing in the building;

2. Beginning this fall, students will NOT be allowed to use earbuds or headphones of any kind unless a teacher issues them for use on an assignment. This includes time spent in the hallway or the cafeteria during the school day. This guideline is in place for because school staff need to be able to communicate with students at all times, and so that students may be kept safe more easily.

3. For students who bring in drinks and food to the school in the morning, all food and drink must be consumed before you leave the cafeteria in the morning. No outside drink cups are allowed in the building. Students may purchase water, juice and diet soft drinks in the building.


We appreciate your cooperation as we begin the 2016-17 school year.
