    Appropriate attire for students is “dressy casual.” (Something that would be appropriate at an outdoor wedding).  We recommend slacks, skirts, dresses, button-down shirts, khakis, polo shirts, etc.  Clothing should be respectful of the nature of the occasion celebrating educational promotion.

    Students should keep in mind that they’re walking up steps, and the day could be windy; weather has ranged in recent years from very hot to very cold.

    Please note that spike heels are not allowed on the ORHS field.
