Newsletter October 21, 2020
Future funding for all Oshkosh Area Schools and our school buildings will be decided by voters in the November 3 election. Question one would renew existing funds for operating our schools, paying our staff and providing learning materials. Question two would provide funding to invest in school building improvements across the district - for safe, flexible and cost-effective schools. Learn more about what will happen if the questions are or or not approved in this Referendum At A Glance or by visiting the referendum website.

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
