Summer School Information Available
High school summer school classes will be offered at Indian River High School. Students must be enrolled in grades 9-12 during the 2013-2014 school year in order to attend. The high school summer school program is designed to offer opportunities for ninth through twelfth grade students to repeat courses not successfully completed during the regular school year and afford students opportunities to remain on track with their graduation cohort. All classes are dependent on sufficient enrollment and the availability of qualified and appropriately endorsed instructional staff.

OSHS's Tina Salmon named VSCA Advisor of the Year!!
At the annual state conference, our own Tina Salmon was named the Virginia Student Council Association (VSCA) Sponsor of the Year! The VSCA is the oldest student leadership organization in the nation. Each year students nominate sponsors for the prestigious title of Sponsor of the Year. Board members of the Virginia Association of Secondary School Principals (VASSP), which is the governing body for the VSCA, choose the winner based on letters submitted from the SCA President and school Principal. Projects and activities of each school's SCA are also considered in the decision. We are lucky to have such a strong SCA at Oscar Smith and this confirms what we already know, it starts at the top. Congratulations Tina!!

Snow Make-up Day Schedule Change
Beginning March 17, 2014, and ending June 11, 2014, six additional minutes will be added to the instructional day for all students. These additional minutes will make up for the snow days that occurred on Monday, March 3 and Tuesday, March 4.

Oscar Smith will now be officially dismissing at 3:49 p.m. and the start time will remain 8:40 a.m.
