Eagle Hour

Eagle Hour Logo

OMHS faculty and staff believe that all students are welcome in our school house and should find a place of belonging to foster positive relationships, pursue passions, and grow academically and socially. As such, we are pleased to expand our weekly Enrichment Period to a daily Eagle Hour.

 

 

 

Eagle Hour is an open lunch period intended to provide students with the opportunity to seek academic assistance, explore clubs and activities, and cultivate meaningful relationships. Foundational to the safe and efficient management of Eagle Hour is our trust in students to use this time wisely and behave appropriately. With our trust comes great responsibility. During Eagle Hour students are responsible for meeting the following expectations:

 

Use time to your academic advantage

  • Seek assistance from teachers, complete missing work, redo assignments
  • Participate in clubs and service organizations

Stay on campus in supervised locations

  • Gym, auditorium, lecture hall, and stadium are reserved for teacher-supervised groups only

Be Safe

  • Students may not sit or stand in stairwells or block hallways
  • No horseplay
  • Students may not order or have food delivered, even by a parent or sibling

Be Respectful

  • Honor quiet work spaces and classroom

  • Clean up after yourself; use trash and recycling cans
