A Glance at OV

The school year is rolling right along as we approach the end of the 1st quarter here at OVHS. Okaw Valley High School students have been working very hard in the classroom as well as participating in extracurricular activities. Academically, we have had at least 90% of our students passing all classes during weekly eligibility checks. Fall athletics are also in full swing. The SOV Varsity Football team is currently (7-1) and volleyball, golf, and cross country are making a push for the post-season. The high school marching T-Wolves have also had a very successful fall thus far. Sky is the limit here at OV!! I can be reached at 665-3631 or at shoaffm@okawvalley.org.

Important new Student Accident Insurance

We recently renewed our contract with Markel Insurance to provide accident insurance for students.  It is the same program that has been available for students however there are a few administrative changes.  Markel Insurance is asking clients to use the link to their site for enrollment, claims and other features offered by Markel.  The website will be here temporarily and a permanent link on the left hand side of the district menu.  If you have questions concerning enrollment or other features contact Markel Insurance at 877-444-5014 or follow this link:  Markel Insurance
