Welcome Back OPHS families! 

We are excited to welcome back students and families to the 2022-2023 school year! As we embark on the upcoming school year we want to share our commitment that this year will be a year of rigorous and engaging work within our classrooms. I want to emphasize our pledge to create and maintain a safe environment for our students and community.  

OPHS has made many changes to our security plans that will foster a safe and healthy environment. In addition to the new security camera system, we will have 12 dedicated security officers throughout our building. Each officer has undergone extensive training this summer to ensure we are prepared to support our students. Lastly, OPHS has a renewed partnership with Oak Park Public Safety that will include daily walkthroughs in our school. 

DROP OFF / PICK UP: 
All students will be dropped off in the student-visitor parking lot. Drivers will enter through gate 1 and follow the traffic cones to the student drop-off lane, once the student is dropped off the driver will exit gate 2.   

Parents and family members picking up students, please be advised that there is no parking on Oak Park Blvd from the student parking lot driveway up to the exit of the circular drive. The circular drive is for emergency vehicles only.

ENTERING THE BUILDING: 
All students and visitors will enter the building through the student entrance, DOOR 28. Students must have a school-issued photo ID to enter the building. Once the student shows ID they will move to the next door where they will pass through metal detectors and have their bag checked. Next, the student will go into the cafeteria for breakfast and be released from the cafeteria at 7:55 a.m. 

DRESS CODE UPDATES: 
Students may not wear the following: 

  • Hats 
  • Full face masks (including gaiter masks) 
  • Sunglasses 
  • Hoodies on their heads 
  • Any top that shows a bare midriff (e.g., no crop tops, bralettes or sheer/lace tops) 
  • Excessively ripped or torn clothing.  No cut-off shorts.  No holes above the mid-thigh area. 
  • Clothing with obscene language, sexual innuendo, or references to drugs or alcohol.  Clothing that harasses or defames individuals or groups of people. 

The wonderful OPHS staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to an excellent school year! 

Sincerely, 
Sherrie Buchzeiger 
Principal | Oak Park High School
