Course Selection

The link below is a tutorial video for how students and parents can work together to select courses on PlusPortals for the 2018-19 school year. Guidance counselors will be meeting with your Sophomores one on one over the next month to go over their choices. Please complete this process by Monday, February 5th

For Parents: If you log into your PlusPortal account and follow the same process outlined in the video, you can view your student's selections and "approve" their choices, by checking the box "approve" next to the student comment section listed below each individual course. If you disagree with their selection, you can also leave comments in the Parent Comment section, voicing your concerns.

Make sure to press "Submit" when you are done with the form.

We will be starting the school day at our normal starting time and relocating some classes so that testers have an optimal testing environment.

Please watch the listings as they are developed and posted in the hallways for your testing locations.



The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education has increased their security measures for the MCAS testing so that all students will have fair opportunities to succeed.  Students need to be prepared for these changes.

Students should not bring electronic devices with them on testing days or, if they must have their cell phone, they should be prepared to put all of their belongings in a designated location on the side of the room and not interact with the devices until the testing period is completely over.  To help maintain the security of the testing area, we ask that parents refrain from texting or calling students.  Please contact the main office at 978-827-5907 if there is an immediate concern.

Students are only allowed to have water at their desks.  Snacks as well as all other beverages including coffee, tea, or juices will not be allowed during testing.  We recommend that students eat a healthy breakfast before testing, as the test can be physically and mentally tiring for some students; however, some students find that having mints or gum is a helpful aid for concentration.  Students should also bring a hard cover or paperback book (electronic devices are not allowed) that they can read after they complete their exam.  

MCAS testing affects the entire ORHS staff and student body.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 978-827-5907 or see Mr. Uminski or Mrs. Bogosh in the main office.
