Oakmont Regional High School provides times for recruiters to be available to our students during some lunches. Federal regulations require us to supply names and contact information of our students to recruiters. If you want your student’s information to be withheld please contact our guidance office in writing.

Basic School Supply List
  • A sling bag or other small bag (We discourage students from carrying large backpacks during the school day)

  • A 2 GB or larger flash drive (to save computer files and documents)

  • A calculator (some Math or Science teachers require a specific type of calculator, so it might be best to wait until school begins)

  • No. 2 pencils or mechanical pencils

  • Ballpoint pens (blue or black are best)

  • Highlighters

  • Four spiral-bound or composition notebooks (one for each course)

  • A three-ring binder with at least four dividers (one for each course)

  • A calendar for scheduling events and due dates

  • Index cards

  • Tissues

  • Hand sanitizer

Teachers may recommend other supplies based on specific course requirements.

Students may bring electronic devices to school, however we ask that they follow school rules regarding use of those devices and keep them secure to avoid theft, loss or damage.

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.
