The Bookstore provides all curriculum materials covered by the annual Instructional Materials Fee. We also sell a variety of products, including calculators, Chromebook chargers, PE uniforms, school supplies, and more.
School Year Hours:
Monday - Friday | 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Monday - Thursday | 7:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
All textbooks are due back to the Bookstore in order to avoid a replacement fee. Students are responsible for returning textbooks – they will not be collected from classrooms or lockers, and teachers do not return books on behalf of a student or class.
First semester books should be returned before Winter Break. Year long and second semester books should be returned before the last day of school. Any books out past due dates posted in Skyward will be assessed a replacement fee. Replacement fees vary. Once the book is returned, that fee will be reversed.
Please note each textbook has individualized barcodes on the spine. This barcode number must match the one initially checked out to the student’s ID.

CTA/Pace Bus Ventra Cards
The district does not offer bus service, other than for some students in special education. Several PACE buses provide service near OPRFHS, including the 309 (Lake Street), 313 (Lake Street), and 315 (Ridgeland Avenue).
Students can get a discounted Ventra student fare card, which PACE and CTA both accept. You must apply for a Ventra student fare card by mail.
To access the application and instructions, either login into the Ventra website, see the links below, or visit the Bookstore. The $2 fee for the card is sent to Ventra along with the form. Do not bring completed forms and/or money to the Bookstore. The student card will be mailed to the Bookstore and you will be emailed when it arrives, in approximately two to three weeks.
Per Ventra: The Student Ventra Card is available to full-time students aged 7-20 years old enrolled in elementary or high school and it entitles the cardholder to reduced fare for trips taken Monday thru Friday between 5:30AM and 8:30PM on CTA and Pace transportation systems. Rides taken outside of these times will automatically be charged the full fare unless the student is under the age of 12 and a parent or guardian has taken the action to qualify for the Student/Child fare.
Note: You must renew Ventra cards for each summer term, and again each fall of the new school year. Be sure to register your student’s card on the Ventra website. If your card is lost or stolen, you will need to use the replacement form and call Ventra with the card’s number to deactivate the lost or stolen card.
