On Saturday evening the OHS Girls Volleyball Team defeated Watertown High School 3-2, to capture their second straight Sectional Title. This means the OHS Varsity Volleyball team has once again qualified for the State tournament. We are incredibly proud and would love to have as many students and families join us at the Resch Center.

OHS is scheduled to play Sun Prairie High School in the State Quarterfinals, at the Resch Center in Green Bay on Thursday, November 1, at 7:30 p.m.

The Athletic Office is offering all OHS students:
  • A $20.00 package deal for students which will include a t-shirt, ticket to the game, and a bus ride to and from the Resch Center.
  • The cost will only be $10.00 for any girl on the JV or Freshman volleyball teams.
  • Buses will leave OHS at 3:45 p.m. on November 1, and return between 11:00 p.m. and midnight.
  • Families are invited to cheer on our team at the Resch Center.
  • There will not be bus transportation for parents or the community, but an advanced ticket and t-shirt package is available!
  • Parents can purchase an $8 ticket and/or $10 t-shirt in the OHS Athletic office during school hours, between Tuesday afternoon and Thursday at 3:00 p.m.
  • Parents should plan their own transportation and parking for the event.
  • OHS buses will drop students off at the Resch Center and parents are invited to meet us once inside.

The drive to Green Bay is long, and it will be late when the game ends, so we encourage students to take advantage of school transportation to cheer on our team.

If the team wins, they will play in the Semifinal on the evening of Friday, November 2. If they win the Semifinal, they'll play in the Championship on Saturday, November 3. We will continue to communicate details and additional transportation options as the week continues.

Congratulations! Let's show up and show off our #oconpride!

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.

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.

    The counselors of Oconomowoc High School would like to invite parents of the Class of 2019 to attend our Senior Parent Night on the evening of Tuesday, September 11, 2018. The presentation will begin at 6:00 p.m. in the Oconomowoc Arts Center.

    This evening will provide information on the following topics:

    • College, Career & Life Readiness Information
    • Post High School Exploration
    • College Admission Procedures and Process
    • Scholarship Resources and Information
    • Financial Aid Process

    Due to changes in the financial aid process last year, we now bring in a financial aid expert who will speak on important deadlines and details on filling out the FAFSA.

    Seniors will also begin meeting with their counselors in workshops during assigned PRIDE periods in early September to begin post high school planning. Students are not required to come to parent night.

    If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact the OHS Student Services office at (262)-560-3115.
