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 Wednesday, April 8, 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.

Food Service Schedule Changes for This Weekend

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.  Families do not need to be using the free and reduced lunch program to pick up these meals.

The next pick up dates and times are as follows:

  • Sunday, April 12:  There will NOT be food pick up times on Easter Sunday
  • Monday, April 13:   8:00-11:00 a.m. or 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. - Times Extended


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 recognizes that many families are experiencing hardship due to loss of work, if in need of meals please stop by. We will find a way to support your needs with community donations that have been coming in.

    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

    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.
