Virtual Learning Hub

The OASD has transitioned to virtual learning during this unprecedented time of school closures across our nation.  On this page you'll find information and links to resources to help with virtual learning.  


Virtual Learning Schedule

Beginning on Monday, March 30, we'll use the following schedule:
  • Mondays: Teacher and staff collaboration and planning
  • Tuesdays-Fridays: Virtual learning days for students


Based on feedback, as well as many successes, it's clear that the time for teachers to collaborate is increasingly necessary in the virtual environment.  Our intent is not to have less instruction, but high-quality instruction throughout the week.


Daily Updates & News

OASD FAMILY UPDATES FOR Friday, June 5, 2020

We will share updates with OASD families every weekday morning and continue until school resumes.  These updates may be short or they may be long, depending on what new information is available that day.  All further updates will be posted daily on this page.

    Elementary & Intermediate School Grading Changes

    Personal Items Pick Up From School

    The end of the 2019-20 school year is approaching, and even though we’re not able to finish the year at school, we need to allow families and teachers time to empty classrooms and pick up their items and school supplies. All OASD schools have a personal item pick up plan for families to gather the items left behind in classrooms and hallway areas. These plans will follow the COVID-19 guidelines established by the CDC to ensure the safety and well being of our students, staff, and families.


    OASD COVID-19 Family & Student Checklist

    All staff, students, and families entering an OASD school will need to use a COVID-19 checklist to self-screen themselves before entering the building. There are also some illness guidelines for use while inside the building.

    Click here to access the COVID-19 checklist and illness guidelines


    Personal Item Pick Up Information

    The pick up process will be slightly different at the Elementary, Intermediate, and High School buildings.

    Click here for information about personal item pick up at our Elementary Schools

    Click here for information about personal item pick up at our Intermediate Schools

    Click here for information about personal item pick up at OHS

    Food Service Resources

    All OASD families in need, who have at least one student enrolled in an OASD school, will now be able to pick up a full week of breakfast and lunch “Grab and Go” meals at Oconomowoc High School East Campus for each student.  Pick up dates and times are as follows: 

    • Sundays from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
    • Mondays from 8:00-10:00 a.m. or 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.  

     

    This program will continue as long as the OASD is closed and will allow families an easy food pick-up plan.  District social workers will be on hand to help families through this process.  If you do not have a vehicle, please contact your school social worker for delivery arrangements. 


    The OASD has established a plan to provide meals for all students who are in need and we have alerted food pantries to increased community need.  If this is a worry for you, please contact your school social worker so we can help you access district and/or community resources.

    Chromebook Exchange and Return

    Students in 6th – grade and 9th – grade will need to exchange their Chromebooks at the end of the school year and will receive a new Chromebook during that process.  Graduating seniors will also need to return their Chromebook at the end of the school year.  The exchange and return process will be scheduled in advance in order to maintain social distancing requirements and CDC guidelines.  Families will receive more information on the exchange and return process from their schools soon.

    Please read the attached letter to prepare for the exchange or return of your OASD Chromebook


    Please be aware of the following additional opportunities:

    • Starting Monday, March 16 Charter Communications will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a subscription.  A service of up to 100 megabits per second will be provided.

    • Use the following website to check discounts available with other internet providers: https://maps.psc.wi.gov/apps/DiscountPrograms

     

    We understand that virtual learning is a new concept for most students, and we will do what we can to support our students and families.  If you have questions about your student’s instructional materials or assignments, please contact their teacher.

    YMCA Emergency Child Care Program

    The YMCA at Pabst Farms will be offering child care services specifically for health care workers, police officers, firefighters, and EMT’s, at Summit Elementary School. The program is open now for children age 4-12 and will continue until our school closures end.

     

    We’re proud to offer Summit Elementary School as a location for this program because we value the contribution our health care workers and first responders are making to our community and OASD families.

     

    How to Access This Program

    Get more information on the program, including costs, FAQ’s, or registration information at www.glcymca.org/covid-19-emergency-services-care.

     

    More Information on the YMCA & OASD Partnership

    Click here to read the full news release on our partnership with the YMCA.

     

    How are we keeping Summit Elementary clean while offering child care?

    • We are staffing Summit Elementary with two custodians that will clean and disinfect the spaces used for child care services each day.  High-touch areas like doorknobs, surfaces, and handles will be cleaned repeatedly throughout the day, along with the supplies and items that children are using.
    • The disinfectants and bathroom cleaners being used are EPA registered hospital-grade disinfectants and are on the CDC list of recommended disinfectants for use against COVID-19.
    • Four areas of the building will be used for the YMCA’s program, including the fourth and second-grade breakout spaces, cafeteria, gym, and bathrooms.  Classrooms will not be used for this program.
    • Once we can confirm the date our school closures will end, we will work with the YMCA to plan the end of their child care program.  This schedule will include ample time to deep clean the spaces used by the child care program, before school begins again.
