The Thursday, April 24, Board of Education meeting has been moved to the Oakville High School Library. The meeting begins at 7 p.m.
HOT Teen TOPICS
OHS Drug & Alcohol Awareness Team
Oakville High School has started the Drug & Alcohol Awareness Team.  Our goal is to create a proactive attitude toward drug and alcohol education and raise awareness at OHS, at home, and in our community.  We want to make students aware of the dangers of drugs and alcohol and ask that you help us in the process.  We believe the more students hear the "Just Say No" message, the more likely they will choose to stay away from these negative influences.

Please check our website for information.  It will be updated periodically.
