Office News, Notes and Misc Information
From the Office.....
The Department of Public Instruction gives each student 10 absences (not days) per year. An absence is considered anything beyond 10 minutes. Examples of an absence (½ or full day) include:
- Leaving early for/arriving later from an appointment
- Vacations/out of town
- Arriving after 7:55am, leaving prior to 2:35pm
When a student exceeds 10 absences, one or all of the following will happen:
- A letter of concern will be sent
- A truancy meeting will be set up
- A doctor’s note will be required for any future absence
- Parent/Guardian can receive a ticket
For medical appointments (doctor, dentist, ortho, eye, etc.), we recommend getting a doctor’s note and bringing it to school upon your child’s return to school. Please plan vacations according to the OASD school year calendar whenever possible.
Our first bell rings at 7:40am and the day begins at 7:45am. Please do everything necessary to have your child to school on time each and everyday. If your child is late, please have him/her check in at the office. If your child will be late for any reason, or will not be attending school that day, please call 424-0170 and leave a detailed message. Our voicemail is on 24/7. If your child is ill, please leave specific symptoms, as we track illnesses for the county health department to track and prevent outbreaks.
Our newsletter is sent electronically every other week on Wednesday. We will use the email account listed in your parent portal. All information is available electronically by email or on the parent portal. It is the parent’s responsibility to log on to their parent portal/email regularly to stay informed with what is going on in our school. We are continuously updating our website and calendar with family events, field trips, spirit days, etc, so check it often! If you do not have electronic access to the newsletter and would like a paper copy, please let the office know by Friday, September 13th.
It is important to check your student’s Infinite Campus account on a regular basis to keep current on any fees that may be due (food service, etc.). All fees carry over from year to year and will accumulate until they are paid. Once your student is in high school, he/she cannot participate in many activities until these fees are paid in full. Also, please remember to update any demographic changes to your student’s information (phone, email, address, etc.). If you have any questions or concerns, please call Mrs. Schiefelbein in the office at 424-0170.
The Oshkosh Area School District expects students to attend their home school, based on where they live. All mail from OASD will come to the primary address in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. The address that district office has on file is the address where the child’s guardian lives and where the child sleeps at night. It cannot be an extended family members home (Grandparents/Aunt/Uncle). Anyone who is not residing in the correct attendance zone will be transferred to their home school.
If your child will be out for a vacation, please call or send a note to the office 2 weeks prior to the vacation. This will allow the classroom teacher time to gather necessary work.
Lost & Found
Please label everything! This includes jackets, lunch boxes & backpacks. You’d be amazed at the large amount of things that get lost!
The Oshkosh Area School District no longer celebrate birthdays with food treats. However, you are welcome to send pencils, notebooks, erasers or a book/game for the class. Healthy Snacks: you are welcome to send a healthy snack to school for your child to enjoy during snack time.
Students take a snack break each school day. Students can take a school milk and may bring a healthy snack from home. Healthy snacks include granola bars, fruit, vegetables, string cheese or plain crackers. Please leave the sugary snacks and doritos at home. Due to allergy concerns, students may not share food of any kind at meals or snack time.
