    Dear Greenland Families,


    Current and former Greenland students have been fortunate to observe civics lessons in person. Greenland has been an election polling site for many years. This year, we anticipate a high turnout at the polls, and we are taking some extra steps to minimize disruption to the school day and keep students safe.


    Here is the safety plan we have developed for Election Day on Tuesday, November 6.


    Pick Up and Drop Off Procedures and Parking:

  • Greenland Staff will park on the playground
  • Arrival and Dismissal Procedures will proceed as normal
  • It may be advantageous to have students take the bus or utilize the carline

  • Lunch and Recess:

  • Students will participate in indoor recesses all day
  • Hot Lunch will be served in the atrium area by the Art Room and Library
  • Students will eat in their classrooms for the day
  • Students with peanuts/nuts in their lunch will eat in an alternate location for allergy safety

  • Building Access (what doors will be open/locked):

  • The main entrance door to Greenland will operate as usual on Election Day
  • Door 4 will be open for citizens to enter to vote
  • All others doors will be secured as usual

  • Voting Entrance and Voting Area:

  • Citizens entering Greenland to vote will enter through Door 4
  • Door 4 is located in the Dixie Parking Lot
  • Citizens will line up in the hallway between the multi-purpose room and the kitchen before entering the gym to vote
  • When a citizen has completed voting, they will exit through gym Door 2

  • Other Safety Measures
  • The gate in the main hallway, by the teacher's lounge, will be closed the entire school day
  • Adults and students will only be able to gain access to classrooms by entering the office and walking in the hallway passed the Student Service's Office
  • School personnel will be stationed in the main entrance working during the school day
  • Staff will be wearing identification badges


  • Thank you for your patience as we work through this busy day at Greenland. Together, we can minimize the potential for delays and stress during the school day.


    Sincerely,

    Shannon McCaffery

    Greenland Elementary School Principal

    Over the next few weeks, all OASD schools will participate in safety drills following the ALICE (Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate) safety protocol. This training encourages staff and students to respond to an unsafe person based on the situation, rather than rely on centralized instructions in dynamic times of crisis.


    The purpose of these safety drills is to provide students and staff the opportunity to practice making a well-informed decision if an unsafe and unexpected situation were to happen at school. Before these drills are held, teachers will hold age-appropriate discussions on:

    • what will take place during the training
    • how to calmly complete the exercise
    • what materials students may need to have with them
    • the expectations for remaining orderly throughout the drill


    Parents will receive additional information, including specific dates and times, via email prior to and during these drills. Any school-specific information will also be shared in these emails. Please contact your school front office with any questions about these safety drills.


    Thank you for your support of safety education in the Oconomowoc Area School District.

    Homecoming application forms are available through this link. Forms are due to the OHS Athletic Office by Friday, September 26, 2018. Please email completed forms to Beth Loppnow at LoppnowB@oasd.org.


    Parade Safety Guidelines:

    • Due to overhead electric wires, floats may not exceed 16' in height.
    • NEW - PROVIDE 2 ADULTS to walk along parade route with float. Direct spectators back to the edge of the road. Candy can be handed out along the sidewalks.
    • All City, County & State ordinances must be followed during the event. Any participant who violates city, county or state ordinances or creates a public safety hazard will be referred to the appropriate authorities.
    • All parade vehicles/floats must be structurally sound and safely designed. The main platform must have no holes or hollow areas where someone could fall through. All standing persons must have something on which to hold (i.e. a railing, pole, handle, etc.) or they must be seated at all times.
    • Two people need to be in the pulling vehicle with one being a full time spotter for the driver.
    • No vehicle in the parade shall stop in route to load or unload passengers.
    • No one will be permitted to ride on the roof or hood of a moving vehicle.
    • Parade moves at a set pace, please follow accordingly to ensure that the parade begins and ends on time and that everyone has a safe and enjoyable time.
    • Parade entries must maintain appropriate distances (one car length) from the entry in front of them. Large gaps between entries can pose a safety hazard as can following an entry too closely.
    • For the safety of parade attendees, throwing items such as candy, etc., from the float or vehicle will not be permitted. You may walk along the sidewalk and hand out candy. Entries identified as throwing items risk future parade participation.
    • Persons riding on floats should have proper footing/seating and should not hang any appendage over the sides of the float.
    • Parade participants should not jump from or onto a float or motorized vehicle.
    • Ensure that float decorations do not obscure the driver's view of the road and that drivers/operators can hear verbal instructions.
    • Entry should easily travel the parade route, turn corners and fit under traffic signals.
    • The height of the entry needs to fit under trees and traffic devices encountered on the parade route.
