  • College Classes

    High school students taking online classes should continue work on those classes during the time that school at South O'Brien is suspended. The College Composition class that was being held at the school will continue with online assignments until school resumes.

  • Communication

    Students, please make sure and check your school email for communication from teachers. That is the best way we have to communicate with all of you. Also, be aware that if we are scanning items for you, they may come from an alternative email address, ie, my scanner is connected with my tcaexpress email address. Stay well and hope to see all of you very soon!

    All school-sponsored practices and events have been prohibited by the Iowa Governor's office and the governing bodies of all HS sports and activities.

    Please check here, on Facebook, and on our website for announcements and updates. The situation is fluid, with frequent changes in mandates from the National and State level. We will do our best to keep up.

    Due to the Covid-19 precautions, the IHSMA has cancelled ALL Solo/Small Ensemble Festival series events set for April 4th & 18th, and the state Large Group Festival series set for May 8-9.
    As this situation is rapidly changing, any guidelines may need to be adjusted. Notifications will go out immediately to member schools, should updates be necessary.

Seniors

  • Scholarships

    All of the local scholarships have now been added to the Guidance Page on the school website. Some deadline dates have been extended and I have highlighted them in bold print. I also highlighted the local scholarships in bold so they are easy to find.

zCommunity Announcements

  • American Heart Association Donations

    As most things at this time, this isn’t how our American Heart Association Fundraiser was planned but we are trying to make the best of it and appreciate your support! We are going to stop collecting donations and if you already collected checks or cash, please scan the checks in on the mobile App using the attached instructions. It would be very helpful if you could convert the cash you have collected to your personal check to process. Since we won't be back in school for a while yet, the AHA recommends that you convert cash to a personal check and then deposit all of the checks on the app. If not possible, please email me and we'll set up a time to meet at the office at school so you can drop off the donations. The new deadline is WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 2020.
