Permanent Reminders: Parents, please remember, it is the law that helmets be worn by your students who are riding bikes to and from school.

  • Parents, please do not park in the bus loading zone in the front of the school even for a short time loading or unloading students.   Please use the parking lot next to the gym. 
  • Also, if your student takes the bus, please remind them that they need to get to the bus area right after school.  They should not be going out to play basketball because they are missing their bus.  Remind your student not to wander into the street or into the bus lanes.
  • If you plan on leaving for a trip, please notify the office at least 5 days prior to leaving.

·         Parents:  Please be aware that if you are on the volunteer list and have had fingerprints done, you must fill out a new volunteer request form EVERY school year but you do NOT need to redo fingerprints.  Please be sure to fill out the volunteer request form as soon as possible so we can use you as a volunteer on field trips and other school functions this school year.  You can get the form at our District Office.

·         Parents:  Please make sure that your student wears garments that are long enough over their tights, leggings, or nylons.  Garments must be no shorter than the fist when arms are hanging straight down.

·         Parents:  Please be aware that student visitors are not allowed during the school day.  The only time student visitors are allowed is with pre-arranged permission (forms to fill out, principal approval) and only during the morning before school starts and during lunch time.  Visitors must be the same grade as the student they are visiting.

Eighth grade promotion from C. K. Price Middle School will commence at 7:00 pm Wednesday, June 10 at Orland High School's Roosevelt Field.   This is a chance for families to celebrate the achievements of their students.  The promotion ceremony is usually well attended. Please plan to be there at least 20 minutes early for best seating.  Promoting students need to arrive by 5:45 pm.


Students will practice promotion procedures after lunch on Tuesday, June 9 and Wednesday, June10 at the high school.  All efforts must be made for your student to attend school on those days.  It is important for each student to receive all of the available information.


If a medical appointment is necessary during school, please attempt to schedule it outside the practice times.  Other types of appointments must be made after school.  Students must attend school, unless ill, on the day of promotion if they plan to participate in the ceremony!


Each student will be given three tickets for their family members. These tickets will allow three people to sit on the field, in chairs, in preferred seating. Tickets will be available at the C. K. Price main office from June 2-June 6. Parents/students who do not pick up their tickets before June 6 will lose their tickets and they'll be given away to other families. Parents/students may request extra tickets and sign up on the waiting list when they come to pick up their tickets. Students will be notified after June 6th if they will receive extra tickets. Parents will be allowed to enter the field for preferred seating between 6:25-6:55.  People seated on the field will be expected to remain in their seats throughout the entire ceremony. Parents will not be allowed out of their seats to take pictures of their graduates or leave the field.  If they do leave the main field during the ceremony, they won't be permitted to return until after the ceremony is over. OHS is following this exact procedure for their graduation.

In order to insure that all students and families enjoy the ceremony, please follow the procedures listed below:

  1. No spectators will be allowed on the field. Pictures must be taken from stands and/or designated areas.
  2. What not to bring to the promotion ceremony:

        A.  Balloons/noise makers - Please leave these in cars until after the ceremony.

        B.  Students are only allowed to wear academic awards on their gowns. Corsages may be

             shown off at the dance after the ceremony.



There will be a dance after the ceremony.  The dance will be held at Orland High School's gym.  The dance is for ALL eighth grade students of Orland Unified School District who participated in the promotion ceremony.  No other students may attend.  The dance is sponsored by the eighth grade parents. 


As in years past, the parents of the eighth grade students are organizing and sponsoring the eighth grade promotion dance.




Also, please be aware that this is not a prom, but a dance and party, planned for our students to celebrate their promotion.  Guidelines for dress are the same as the school dress code.


The dance will be held at the Orland High School's gym on June 10 from 9:00 pm to 11:00 pm.  The dance is FREE


Eighth grade parents are being asked to provide snacks and raffle prizes during the dance.



All 8th grade students will be expected to participate in the promotion ceremony.  However, the ceremony is a privilege, not a right.  Students may become ineligible (administrative decision) for the promotion ceremony and/or trip if any occur:

  • The student is considered as a "habitual truant" as defined by Ca. Ed. Code 48260.
  • The student is recommended for expulsion.
  • The student is suspended during the last four weeks of school.
  • The student is suspended 2 or more times during the school year.

Students with unpaid fees or fines will have their diplomas held until all fees are paid for.
