LETTER TO VIRTUAL LEARNERS

The information listed in this message is specific to our students who are going to learn virtually during the first semester of the 2021-2022 school year. Many of the policies and procedures that apply to Oak Park High School students still apply to our virtual learners. However, if there are any questions about that at any time, please do not hesitate to reach out for assistance and/or guidance.

  • Virtual learners may access their schedules in Student Connect. If there is a problem with access, please contact the main office at 248-336-7740. If you believe there is an error in your student’s schedule, please reach out to their counselor at:
  • 10th Grade: Mrs. Jones rosalyn.jones@opsk12.org
    • 9th Grade Last Name: A-G
  • 11th Grade: Ms. Barnett violida.barnett@opsk12.org
    • 9th Grade Last Name: H-M
  • 12th Grade: Ms. Taylor sheryl.taylor@opsk12.org
    • 9th Grade Last Name: N-Z
  • Teachers invited students to their Google classrooms this week. If your student did not receive an invitation via their NEW school email, they should reach out to their teacher. All email addresses are listed on the high school homepage at www.oakparkschools.org/schools/ophs/
  • Students will be entering Zoom rooms the same way that they did last year. Again, the Zoom links were shared with the students in their Google classrooms. Students must have their first and last name on the screen and must have their cameras on during class.
  • A message went out earlier this week regarding our new student emails. Their previous Gmail accounts issued from the school are going to expire. As a reminder:
  • New Email address:

OAK - all caps

Their last name- with the first letter capitalized

First letter of their first name- capitalized

The last two digits of their student ID number  

@stu.opsk12.org

  • New password:

Upper case first letter of first name

Lower case first letter of last name

2-digit birth month

2-digit birth day

Last four numbers of their student ID number

  • Virtual learners who did not attend orientation do not need to worry about making that up in any way. Once your student returns to school, we will get them an ID.
  • The bell schedule is the same for virtual and face-to-face learners at Oak Park High School. The bell schedule is attached to this email as well. It is essential for students to get to their classes on time and stay until the end.
  • If a student is having technology issues one day (laptop, Zoom, internet connection, etc.), students should reach out to their teacher for direction. Remember, they are teaching classes all day so may not be able to respond immediately.

We remain dedicated to ensuring that all of our Oak Park High School students have a successful school year. Please review routines with your student regarding virtual learning. It is important for students to have necessary supplies nearby, a charged laptop and their camera on. Students who are answering questions and interacting with the lesson are going to be the most engaged in their learning. Encourage students to use the time the teacher is giving them to complete the work instead of waiting until after class to finish the work as homework.

If your student is experiencing difficulty with their classes, we ask that you reach out to your student’s teacher and/or counselor. If the problem could not be resolved, please reach out to an administrator at that time. We are looking forward to an exceptional year of learning with you and your student.
