REGISTRATION FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 How do I register for classes? 
– During the Spring we prepare for the upcoming school year by having students register for their classes for the following year. Students receive instructions during an assembly and are given a registration card to fill out and return. Students follow the directions on the card and select from the options available. Once completed and signed by the student and parent the registration card is turned in for processing.
– If you are currently attending OHMS you should have received your registration card in your TA class by mid-February.  –  If you are planning to attend OHMS next year and are currently a 6th grade student at a feeding elementary school (Rosamond, Riverton, and Southland) you should have picked up a registration card at the parent evening on Jan. 25th. If you were unable to attend the parent meeting, registration cards were sent to your elementary school to be handed and sent home with your student.
If you did not receive one or may have lost your card (What?!? That would NEVER happen!) come to the counseling center to get a new one or on the counseling center website. 
* If you are not currently at OHMS or a feeding elementary school and are planning on attending OHMS next school year – contact the counseling center 801-412-2360 so we can get your registration information.
