Learning Schedule For OASD Students Beginning January 20, 2021

posted 1/13/2021

Before Winter Break, we contacted families to confirm that we would return from break in the hybrid learning strategy, then evaluate our COVID-19 illness and absence data to determine if we should continue in the hybrid strategy or modify that plan.  Based on the current low number of absences among students and staff, the OASD Administration has decided that students at all grade-levels will return to school face-to-face on Wednesday, January 20.  This student return will be in full-time face-to-face instruction, five days a week, at the intermediate and high school levels and our face-to-face cohort strategy at the elementary level.  Please remember that Monday, January 18, and Tuesday, January 19, are staff professional development days and non-school days for students.

As we have done all school year, we will continue to monitor our COVID illness and absence data and make adjustments to our learning strategies as needed based on that information.  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.

OASD Student Schedule Starting the Week of January 18, 2021:

ELEMENTARY STUDENTS

  • January 18 & 19: OASD Staff PD days & non-school days for ALL students.
  • January 20: Elementary students continue to attend school in the cohort strategy, five days a week.

INTERMEDIATE & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

  • January 18 & 19:  OASD Staff PD days & non-school days for ALL students.
  • January 20: Intermediate and OHS students return to full-time, face-to-face learning, at school five days a week.

  • Students enrolled in the OVLC online learning model will continue their normal online instruction.
  • Any Family with students in grades 4K-8 interested in their child returning to face-to-face instruction from OVLC will have the opportunity to request a transfer for the start of the 3rd trimester. 
  • Deadline to complete this form requesting a transfer into or from the OVLC = February 12, 2021

    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.

    We will share updates with OASD families every Friday during the 2020-21 school year.  These updates may be short or they may be long, depending on what new information is available that week.


    NEW UPDATES

    Learning Schedule for Intermediate Schools & OHS Starting January 20, 2021

    Before Winter Break, we contacted families to confirm that we would return from break in the hybrid learning strategy, then evaluate our COVID-19 illness and absence data to inform our decision to either continue in the hybrid strategy or modify that plan.  Based on the current low number of absences and active COVID-19 cases among students and staff, the OASD Administration has decided that students at all grade-levels will return to school face-to-face on Wednesday, January 20.  This student return will be in full-time face-to-face instruction, five days a week, at the intermediate and high school levels and our current face-to-face cohort strategy at the elementary level.  Please remember that Monday, January 18, and Tuesday, January 19, are staff professional development days and non-school days for students.

    As with all of the other learning strategy shifts this school year, this information pertains to OASD families enrolled in in-person learning. If your child is registered in the OVLC, they will remain in the fully virtual OVLC program.

    As we have done all school year, we will continue to monitor our COVID illness and absence data and adjust our learning strategies as needed based on that information.  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 received a detailed email from their Principal yesterday with important information about student schedules beginning January 20, 2021. Use these links to access that information:

    OHS Winter Sports - Attendance Update

    The Classic Eight Conference Superintendents and Athletic Directors met again this week to review conference attendance guidelines and voted to increase the number of spectators allowed to attend home and away events.  The new attendance guidelines are:

    • Each student-athlete will have four tickets available for family members to attend home events.
    • Families are still not allowed to share those tickets with friends or community members.
    • Spectators will be charged to attend home and away events beginning on Friday, January 8.  OHS home ticket prices for adults and students will be $4.00. Ticket prices at away events will vary.
    • If they are using one of the four tickets, siblings of an athlete who also attend OHS can enter home events for free if they have their student ID.
    • If they are using one of the four tickets, grandparents of athletes can attend games for free if they also have a senior citizen pass.  Senior passes can be picked up at the OHS Main Office during school hours.
    • Two adult spectators per student-athlete will be able to attend away events. Upon arrival, these adult spectators will need to sign in and purchase their tickets.
    • Masks will be required at all events and spectators are asked to sit with their household group and socially distance between their groups.

     

    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.


      School Meals for Virtual Students

      Breakfast and lunch are available for all OASD students on their virtual learning days during the 2020-21 school year.  Students can order meals each week and pick up those meals every Monday at Oconomowoc High School. Student breakfast and lunch will continue to be free because of the USDA sponsored free meal program.

      Families are required to complete a few simple steps on a weekly basis to receive these meals:

      1. Click this link to reach the online order form.
      2. Complete a separate order form for each student.

        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.

        USDA EXTENDS FREE MEAL PROGRAM

        The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service has again extended the free student meals program, providing a free breakfast and lunch option for students until June 30, 2021, or until the USDA confirms that funding is no longer available, whichever comes first.  As a result, student breakfast and lunch will be free on the days that students are learning at school face-to-face, and the days that students are learning virtually.

        For those students at the Intermediate Schools and OHS, a free meal option will be available for selection in the lunch service areas.   Ala carte and snack items are not included in the free meal program and will remain available for purchase.

        When this free meal program ends, families will be charged for meals through their child’s Skyward Family Access account based on their student meal status, whether free, reduced or standard price.  Click the "Free & Reduced Meal Information" drop-down below for more information on receiving free and reduced student meals after the free meal program ends.


        Free & Reduced Meal Program Available After Free Meals End

        All OASD students have access to our food service program and meals every school day.  Many families may also qualify for reduced price or free school meals for their children.  Click this link for the full packet of information and required application forms.

        Free and reduced meal applications are due before October 1, 2020, for the 2020-21 school year.

        Please note – a new application is required for every school year.  If you participated in the free and reduced meal program last school year, please submit a new application for 2020-21.  Even though meals are currently free, if you qualify for free or reduced meals, you should submit the application before the October 1, 2020, deadline.  If you miss the application deadline, you won’t be able to receive free or reduced meals once the USDA free meal program ends.


        Important note – If you are eligible for free or reduced meals and complete the application process, your student’s annual fee may also be waived if you complete all of the forms. Click this link to read the full financial difficulty letter for more information.

        All students in the OVLC and students learning virtually during a quarantine period can order breakfast and lunch for their virtual school 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 every Monday at Oconomowoc High School.  A map of the pick-up location is included in the form linked below.  

        Cost for Meals on Virtual Student Days
        The USDA has again extended the free student meals program, providing a free breakfast and lunch option for students until June 30, 2021, or until the USDA confirms that funding is no longer available, whichever comes first.  As a result, student breakfast and lunch will be free on the days that students are learning at school face-to-face, and the days that students are learning virtually.

        When this free meal program ends, families will be charged for meals through their child’s Skyward Family Access account based on their student meal status, whether free, reduced, or standard price.

         

        Families are required to complete a few simple steps on a weekly basis:

        1. Click this link to reach the online order form.
        2. Complete a separate order form for each student.
        3. Submit your student’s order before 2:00 p.m. on Fridays so their meals are available the following week.
        4. Pick up meals on Mondays, between 4:00-6:00 p.m. for the entire week
        5. 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.
        6. If a school week is shortened because of a holiday or non-school day, the number of meals will be adjusted accordingly.

        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.

        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.
