The schedule is as follows:
January 22-23 – classes in the following departments: math, social studies, CTE, fine and performing arts, health/PE, and basic skills. January 26-27 – classes in the following departments: science, English, world languages, ESOL, and AVID
2hr Early Release Schedule
Next Friday, January 30th, and the following Monday, February 2nd, will both be student holidays. The 3rd quarter will begin on Tuesday, February 3rd.

No doubt everyone is familiar with the phrase “You can’t please all of the people all of the time.” Your PTSA is trying to do just that by offering the first DAYTIME meeting in quite a few years. For those parents who have a hard time attending 7 pm meetings, we are hosting our Wednesday, February 4, meeting in the school’s library at 10 am. The meeting will begin at 10 am with a 30-minute session of casual conversation with the administration, immediately followed by the official meeting. If this February’s meeting is well attended, more daytime meetings will be considered next school year.
The topic of discussion for February’s official meeting will be “Exhibition of Learning.” If your student participated in past EOLs, please come with your input and constructive criticism. If your student is new to OHS, come and discover what the evenings are about and why parent participation ensures a successful experience for the participants.
Financial aid nights- Rescheduled
On February 19th, Oakton High School will host a FAFSA Night for our seniors. We will have financial aid experts from College Board and General Dynamics on hand to help our seniors complete their FAFSA form and CSS Profile in the WAC Lab and Library. A handout is attached to this KIT with the documents that you need to bring with you that evening. By the end of the evening you will be able to submit your application for financial aid.
The Financial Planning Night for K-12 families will be held on April 14th. On that evening, we will have resources applicable to parents of students from elementary school through high school on how to make the most of your college savings.
