At the afternoon briefing today, with Environmental Management Consulting, Inc. (EMC), Western Lakes Fire District, and Butters Fetting, we were informed that equipment inside the Oconomowoc Arts Center (OAC) showed slightly raised levels of Carbon Monoxide (CO). While these levels are below the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standard of safety, we believe it is necessary to determine the source of these readings before allowing anyone into the building. Oconomowoc High School (OHS) and the OAC will remain closed. All practices and events planned at OHS and the OAC this weekend will also be canceled.
We will be working through the weekend to determine the source of these readings and will provide updates as we continue to learn more. The safety of our students, staff, and community continues to be our priority and we are using an abundance of caution to ensure safety for everyone.
We will communicate with families by voicemail and email once it is safe for students and staff to access the building. Information will also be posted on oasd.org and social media.
