Activity Fee
Instead of being billed separately for field trips, activities, yearbooks, etc., we have combined these individual charges into one total fee. There may be a few exceptions for activities that will be outside this fee such as Grad Night for seniors. Your account will be billed ½ of the total fee in September and ½ in October.

Athletic Paperwork: Link
Students must have a current physical form on file to try-out or participate in OCS athletics. Once the paperwork is completed, it must be returned to the athletic office so that your child is cleared to participate. Please note: These are the only forms accepted by the FHSAA. Any student playing a Fall sport must have their physical packet turned in to the athletic office by July 14. If physicals are turned in after this date, a $50 fine will be assessed.
