Hybrid Purple/Gold Learning Information For Intermediate Schools & OHS

posted 11/19/2020

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

Student Food Service Options On Virtual Days

OASD students will have the opportunity to order meals for their virtual learning days.  Meals are packed based on the number of virtual school days your child will have each week and families can pick up those meals at OHS Main Campus.   Student breakfast and lunch will continue to be free because of the USDA sponsored free meal program.

  4. If a holiday or non-school day is on a Monday, meal pick up will occur on Tuesday, between 4:00-6:00 p.m.
  5. If a school week is shortened because of a holiday or non-school day, the number of meals will be adjusted accordingly.

Student Services Support

OASD Student Services Staff are available as a resource to support students who may be struggling with anxiety or other mental health concerns.  The counselors, school social workers, and school psychologists can provide individual support for students and families.  Please reach out to the student services staff at school if your child is struggling or if you need support in navigating these unique times.

2020-21 Back to School Reopening Plan

2020-21 Back to School Reopening Plan

The last four months have brought many unexpected challenges to our District families and staff.  Our school closures in March were unprecedented, and our administrative team, staff, and families persevered through the difficulty of moving instruction to a remote learning environment.  While our students and staff were adapting to remote learning in Spring, our OASD Administrative team and School Board were working and planning for our Fall return to school.


OASD Intermediate Schools & OHS Transition to Face-to-Face Learning

POSTED ON Monday, September 28, 2020

At an OASD School Board Special Meeting Wednesday, September 23, the School Board held a discussion and voted to bring all intermediate and high school students back to school face-to-face for full school days, 5-days a week, beginning on Monday, September 28. The OASD will reopen enrollment into the Ocon Virtual Learning Community (OVLC) for students in grades 5-8  who are currently in the purple/gold split attendance schedule and who wish to attend the OVLC instead.  OHS students who are currently in the purple/gold split attendance schedule and wish to move to a fully virtual program will be able to transition to online coursework via Odysseyware software to complete the first semester and then transfer to the OVLC in the second semester.

  • Students and staff members who are currently in quarantine should continue to follow their predetermined quarantine schedule.  With the switch to full-time face-to-face learning, students and staff should return to school on their first learning day after a quarantine period.
  • Intermediate and high school families should look for an email from school principals with additional information about the full student body returning to school face-to-face.  Elementary students will continue to follow their current schedule.
  • Please note that Friday, October 2, 2020, is a no school day for students and professional development day for staff based on the original 2020-21 school year calendar.

Changes to the OASD traditional student face-to-face learning option

posted on August 5, 2020

At their August 4 meeting, the OASD School Board approved changing the traditional face-to-face learning option to a face-to-face cohort model at the Elementary levels and a split attendance model at the Intermediate and High School levels.  These models represent the District’s highest degree of mitigation to reduce close social contacts while still providing an opportunity for students to learn in a face-to-face setting.

 A medical advisory committee has been developed to provide guidance to the OASD School Board and administration during return to school planning and throughout the school year. This group of healthcare professionals will have access to local and District COVID-19 data. With the assistance of the medical advisory committee and the County Health department, the District will establish metrics to assist the Board in determining when a return to a full face-to-face environment is warranted.

The learning options that families can now select for their child to return to school in the fall are:

  • Face-to-face cohort model for 4K- grade 4 at the Elementary level and face-to-face split attendance model at the Intermediate and High School levels.
  • Ocon Virtual Learning Community, a fully online virtual learning option that families can select for grades 4K-12 instead of returning to the school environment.
  • A physically distanced learning format for grades K-6 that provides more social distancing but requires additional parent support for students, and will only be offered if there is enough interest per grade level.

OASD Fall 2020 Return to School Plan

Posted on July 17, 2020

On July 17, 2020, the OASD released the first edition of our Fall 2020 Return to School Plan.  This document will be updated continually as we navigate the return to school.  Many factors are out of our control and will remain that way for the 2020-21 school year.  We will continue to work with State, County, and local agencies to adapt our plans to the changing COVID-19 pandemic.

The District has provided a significant amount of information to OASD families over the last four months, by email, on the OASD website, in OHS blog updates, within virtual learning platforms, and on the District social media pages.  This information may have been overwhelming at times, but the OASD will continue to provide an abundance of information so that families and staff are informed of the District's work and the decision-making that affects our students, families, staff, and community.

OHS Winter Sports Attendance 

The Classic Eight Conference Superintendents and Athletic Directors have decided that in order to help control the spread of COVID-19, there need to be restrictions on attendance during high school winter sports. However, the Classic Eight Conference also recognizes the importance of family support in our stands.  Because of this, only parents of the "home" school student-athletes will be allowed to attend winter events through the end of December. These guidelines will be re-evaluated in early January once all conference schools return from winter break.

OHS athletic fans unable to attend in-person will have the opportunity to view events via live-streaming coordinated by host schools. Visit www.oasd.org/LiveStream for links to home and away winter sports.


REMINDERS

Waukesha County Health Department Contact Tracing Update

The Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD) has been working closely with Waukesha County and the Department of Health and Human Services to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our schools and community.  A large part of this collaboration has involved tracking all positive cases in the OASD and notifying close contacts to those individuals through the school and County contact tracing process. 

In late October, the Waukesha County Public Health Department announced that it had modified the standard of practice for disease investigation, contact notification, and symptom monitoring.  Today’s communication from County Executive Paul Farrow and County Health Officer Benjamin Jones explain what these changes mean for contact tracing and quarantining moving forward.

    Face Covering Information

    Face Covering Information

    On July 30, 2020, the Governor of Wisconsin declared a Public Health Emergency and issued an Emergency Order requiring individuals to wear face coverings when indoors and not in their private residence. This order took effect on August 1 and is set to expire on September 28, 2020. This mandate includes staff and students attending the OASD.


     

    On September 22, 2020, Governor Tony Evers declared a new public health emergency and issued a new face coverings order requiring individuals to wear face coverings when indoors and not in their private residence, effective immediately.  This mandate includes staff and students attending the OASD and is scheduled to expire on November 21, 2020.


    The District’s current plan requires all staff members to wear face coverings if they cannot maintain six feet of distance from each other and students. At their August 4 meeting, the OASD School Board approved a requirement for students to wear face coverings in schools and on school busses. Schools will develop plans and procedures to provide opportunities for “mask breaks” for students throughout the day. Also, students will not be required to wear masks outdoors or during periods of physical exertion in Physical Education, and during athletic practices and competition.

    Students may submit a Request for Accommodation Related to Mandatory Face Mask Use form for children who may have medical, mental health, developmental, or other sensory sensitivity that would prevent them from wearing a face covering.

    The Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD) has been working closely with Waukesha County and the Department of Health and Human Services to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our schools and community.  A large part of this collaboration has involved tracking all positive cases in the OASD and notifying close contacts to those individuals through the school and County contact tracing process.

    In late October, the Waukesha County Public Health Department announced that it had modified the standard of practice for disease investigation, contact notification, and symptom monitoring.  Communication from County Executive Paul Farrow and County Health Officer Benjamen Jones explain what these changes mean for contact tracing and quarantining moving forward.

    OCON Virtual Learning Community Information

    OCON Virtual Learning Community

    The Oconomowoc Area School District (OASD) is excited to introduce the Oconomowoc Virtual Learning Community (OVLC) as one of the educational options for students in the 2020-21 school year.  Our District continues to listen to the feedback from families, and we understand the need families have to support their children in entirely virtual settings as a result of the current pandemic.  We believe the OVLC will meet this need for families, both in response to COVID-19 and long-term, as families determine the most flexible educational environment for their children.

     

    The OVLC is structured as part of the OASD, not an OASD Charter School.  Students who enroll in the OVLC will continue to be part of the OASD and can participate in OASD co-curricular activities or athletics.  Students will also have the opportunity to transition between settings at designated points in the school year if they find the educational environment is no longer conducive to their academic or social development.  

     

    Click here to read the initial OVLC Program Planning Guide

     

    This Program Planning Guide is designed to support families as they decide if the OVLC is the right fit for their children. This document will continue to change as the OVLC team finalizes program details leading up to the start of the 2020-21 school year.  Each time the program guide is updated, the issue date will be included on the cover and the newest guide will be saved on this page.
