OHS Schedule Pick-up Day

The dates this year are Wednesday, August 23, and Thursday, August 24, from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm in C Plaza 2nd floor, it is held here every year.

The shifts will be 8:30 am – 10:30 am, 10:30 am – 1:00 pm, and 1:00pm – 3:00 pm both days. I will need 3 people for each shift, if I get 4 that would be great.

C Plaza 2nd floor is really easy to find. If you park on the north side of the building, by the Indian doors, go through the doors and straight ahead down the hallway and turn right at the first hallway all the way down to double doors in front of you, pass the cafeteria on the left and the gym on the right, go through double doors and your there.

If you’re entering on the south side of the building by the tennis court, down the hall on the left, pass the office to dead end (gym wall), turn left; go through double doors and your there.
