Low Risk Winter Athletics begin again on Tuesday Jan. 19th
Low-Risk Winter Athletics, which includes Badminton, Cheer, Dance, Bowling, Gymnastics, and Boys Swim/Dive, can all begin practice once again as early as Tuesday the 19th. Coaches will reach out to those teams that already conducted tryouts in November to resume the season. Those sports that did not yet have tryouts will have a schedule posted here soon. Please be sure you are registered on 8to18 and have a current physical on record at the school. All COVID-related mitigations remain in place so masks must be worn, social distancing observed, no sharing of items. Please bring your own water bottles and be prepared as locker rooms are still off-limits. Any student that has Covid related symptoms must be picked up immediately and cannot take part until quarantine guidelines are completed.
Out of season athletics will resume contact days in the immediate future. Coaches of those sports will have that information on social media, announcements in school and online, as well as on this website. The same COVID related procedures outlined above for in-season athletics are expected for contact days. We will update this information as IDPH/IHSA and the Governor's Office release new information.
Here is the link that will show the bus routes that will run each school day during remote learning to get students to OHS for a 3:10 pm drop off for either winter practices or contact days if it is needed for a student to get here, that service begins Weds the 20th and runs each school day except for holidays or shortened schedule days. There is no return service, so students would have to be picked up from OHS after their contact day is done. All students would have to follow the Phase 4 Guidelines in order to participate.
If you have any questions please e-mail Mr. Howard at email@example.com or Mrs. Kowalczyk at firstname.lastname@example.org

You can bring a group of no more than 25 (including yourself) in that window of time, all must be masked and maintain social distancing. You can sign at the table, take pictures, and then you will need to clear the area for the next group. An e-mail will be sent to you with your time that you can then share with parents, coaches, and family. Please have the signing student wear a shirt or hat from the college. We look forward to giving this opportunity to our student-athletes as we all practice masking and social distancing and do our parts to end this pandemic. Congratulations to all who are signing!
