RECESS - INSIDE OR OUT?

Oshkosh School District rules for staying inside for recess:

  • Rain/heavy wet snow or sleet: STAY IN
  • Temperatures less than 10 degrees: STAY IN
  • Wind chill 0 degrees or below:  STAY IN

This applies to before school, recess and lunch time.  

Students should always have a hat, mittens/gloves and a winter jacket.  If a student wants to play in the snow they must also have snow pants and boots.  If you child does not have snow pants or boots, they will need to stay on the shoveled areas of the playground/blacktop area/track.  

Please make sure your child is dressed for outdoor recess.  The office will NOT be able to supply your child with a coat, hat or mittens to stay warm outside.

Attendance

All students need to be in ​the building​ on their in-person school days.  If your child is not in ​the school​ a parent needs to contact the school office before 8:00am to excuse them.  If we do not hear from a parent/guardian we will mark your child unexcused/truant from school.  Joining a class virtually does NOT excuse them, a parent/guardian must contact the office.  


Keep Contacting the School!

COVID DATA AND SYMPTOMS

In an effort to continue to track symptomatic students, return dates to school, and Covid-19 cases, we kindly ask that you continue to notify your school nurse when your child has symptoms, has tested positive for Covid-19, or has been a close contact to someone that has tested positive for Covid-19. Please call 920-509-0586 or email kaitlyn.williams@oshkosh.k12.wi.us with Covid-related information. Thank you. 


Registration Fees/Free and Reduced Lunch

All students enrolled in the Oshkosh Area School District need to pay an instructional fee.  Please double check the "Fees" tab in your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account to check your current balance.  Payments can be made through the portal or sent to the school office.  Checks should be made out to Oaklawn Elementary School.  Please label the payment with your student's name and which fee you are paying for.  Destiny/Media book fines are also listed  in the "Fees" tab.  Some fees may be waived for students who qualify for free/reduced lunches.  It is the families responsiblity to make sure you complete the proper paperwork.  All applications have a section to complete to have the fees waived.  Families/students who have directly certified for free/reduced lunch by the state have an extra form included with their status letter that needs to be returned to the school office.  You can NOT assume your fees are waived just because you qualify.  

Free/Reduced Lunch applications are available online.  https://www.oshkosh.k12.wi.us/families/food-service
