Senior Portraits for Yearbook -  Make-Up & Retake Day
HR Imaging will be here on Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 7:20-2:35 p.m. in the Main Gym for any senior who was absent during the first senior portrait day or if a senior wants a retake. Proofs from the first senior portrait day were mailed/emailed to families on Oct. 28. Seniors can choose their pose by simply visiting hrimaging.com. Instructions are provided on both the email and the mailed flyer. To sit for this photo, seniors just need to visit the main gym during early dismissal or late arrival, study halls, lunch periods or English classes. 

Yearbook Sales
Make sure you buy your 2021-22 yearbook to see how Orange High School SHINES, our theme this year, by the deadline, Friday, April 8, 2022! The price will also go up at the end of January. Go to yearbookforever.com and search for Olentangy Orange High School in the top search bar. You can also refer to this link on the Pioneer Press each Friday, and the link mailto:kari_phillips@olsd.us will also appear on Instagram when you follow oohsyearbook. If you have questions about ordering, contact Mrs. Phillips in room 2213.   Seniors must select the "yearbook home delivery" and pay the additional $8 shipping to avoid having to come to the school next fall, after graduation, to pick theirs up. Also, extra 2021 yearbooks are available for purchase. See Mrs. Phillips if you're interested in buying one.

Parents - Make sure you buy your child's 2022 yearbook before the Friday, April 8 deadline. Follow the instructions below to purchase yours online. You should also receive emails every two weeks from Walsworth describing how to purchase one too. Once a yearbook is purchased for your child, your email will be dropped from the email blast.
1. Go to the yearbookforever.com
2. In the search bar at the top, search for the high school's name, "Olentangy Orange High School". You might have to select the school's name from a drop down menu after that.
3. On the next screen, you'll see different products. Click on yearbook only.
4. Select "Yearbook home delivery" if you wish to have the yearbook shipped to your home address in the fall of 2022. *Important: Senior parents must select the "Yearbook home delivery" option and pay the extra $8 to have the book shipped home when it comes out in fall 2022. This mandatory add-on ensures your child will receive the book without picking it up at the high school.
5. Enter student information including grade and a working email address.
6. Add shipping details if you selected to have it shipped home. Then, check out.

If you have questions, please contact adviser Kari Phillips at the high school.  

Senior Ads for Yearbook (posted 10/13)
Celebrate your child's graduation by purchasing a senior ad in the 2022 yearbook. You can submit a baby photo, senior photo and a heartfelt message that commemorates your senior's time in school. The senior ad order form and size sheet are available on the school's website, will be linked to the yearbook social media accounts and will also be passed out in senior English classes. All senior ads must be purchased online! You will go to yearbookforever.com and then search for the high school to buy them. You can purchase the senior ad, upload the necessary message/photos and purchase your senior's yearbook all in the same transaction. Please note: The ads are honored on a first come, first serve basis determined when both payment and artwork are submitted until space is full. Therefore, reserve your space asap. We anticipate selling a lot of ads this year. Here are more details about ordering a yearbook ad for your senior.  The deadline for submission is Thursday, March 3. Contact Kari Phillips with questions.
