Students and staff have automatic, single sign-on access through Clever. Just go to the Online Textbook and Resources page from our Quick Links and scroll down to the bottom right to see the link to Code.org.
Complete this brief survey so we can try to accommodate all students who are interested!
Teachers interested in hosting their own event in their classroom or after school can get started by visiting www.hourofcode.com.
The OLHS library is also setting up a “Coding Corner” in the front of the library where students can work on coding. Feel free to send them with a pass to the library to practice!
