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
