The LaunchPad Parent Portal site will provide automated access to different OCPS systems that parents and guardians will utilize such as Canvas and Skyward Parent Access. The registration process for LaunchPad uses the mobile phone number or email address that is on file with the school in our student information system. To register for an account, parents and guardians will go to http://parents.classlink.com/ocps. Once registered, parents and guardians will visit http://launchpad.ocps.net to login and access their account. When information is added or updated in Skyward, it will take 24-48 hours to activate parent registration in the Parent Portal.


Click here to review the instructions for Skyward.

Do you know that WOHS has a Food Pantry to assist West Orange families in need? If a student's basic human needs are not being met, the lessons in the classroom cannot possibly matter. Food, hygiene items, school supplies, and basic clothing essentials are available for students and their families. You can drop off items at the front desk.

If you have any questions, please email kristen.iannuzzi@ocps.net.




Student tech help is available when you are at home by emailing studenthelp@ocps.net.

If you plan to volunteer over the summer, you may continue with the same community service plan. Incoming students may volunteer over the summer without a signed plan but will need to get one signed once school starts.

Click here for the guidelines and forms.


Thank you to our Student Services staff for taking the time this week to meet with parents and provide such valuable information. If you were unable to make the presentations, the slides can be found on the Student Services page along with much more important information.
