Though we are not presently holding in-person classroom sessions, it is important for students and parents to stay aware of developments related to making School at Home a fruitful experience that continues the high standards of Owensboro Catholic Schools. To that end, we will work to include all information and resources related to the effort in this central area on our website.
We plan to provide updates as the situation evolves and do our very best to address questions and concerns that are raised by parents, students and teachers alike. Lessons, research papers, projects, packets, and other creative assignments have been developed and communicated to your children. Teachers will be available for any questions you may have via email or by calling your school site.
To reach teachers with questions regarding assignments please use teacher email – https://owensborocatholic.org/directory/
In fact, the best way to reach anyone OCS is to use email. All OCS employees are monitoring their email on a regular basis.
Parents of OCHS students, please be sure your children are checking their school email. You can reach the OCHS office from 9-1.
