2020-21 Oconomowoc High School Back to School Information
HYBRID PURPLE/GOLD LEARNING FOR OHS STUDENTS, NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 18
The OASD has decided to switch to the hybrid purple/gold learning model for both Intermediate Schools and Oconomowoc High School from Monday, November 30, through Friday, December, 18.
This short-term learning model change is intended to reduce the number of student and staff quarantines and COVID-19 cases we are experiencing in our schools due to home or community contact. The continued increase in staff quarantines has required teachers to teach remotely while the District provides a substitute teacher or qualified supervisor for the students learning at school. The variability of these absences is making it very difficult to find substitute teachers and qualified supervisors for students who are learning at school, sometimes resulting in entire classes or grade-levels being sent to virtual learning.
In mid-December, we will evaluate the learning models, quarantine information, and COVID-19 cases among staff and students, to make a determination on our return to school after the winter holiday break. The District will share additional information with families before the OASD winter break which starts on December 19.
Intermediate & High School Student Schedules for November 30-January 3:
- November 30-December 18: Learning in the hybrid purple/gold model
- December 19-January 3: All OASD students and staff off school for winter break
