Chris Herren - ALL SCHOOL PRESENTATION - Courtesy of Mel's Charities
Ozaukee High School has the privilege of traveling to Port Washington High School on December 1 at 8:30. We will be joining three other area districts who have been invited to hear Mr. Herren speak about his journey and struggles with addiction. On December 1, the ENTIRE student population at OHS will bus over to Port High for this 2 hour conversation. We will be back in time for lunch. The entire event cost is being generously covered by Mel's Charities.
Chris Herren Bio
An extraordinary basketball player, Chris Herren was a celebrated star in his native Fall River, MA before graduating high school. He went on to play at Boston College and Fresno State, two seasons in the NBA – including one with his hometown team, the Boston Celtics – and seven seasons overseas before losing it all to the disease of addiction. With the unwavering support of his family and friends, Chris has been sober since August 1, 2008, and he now shares his story with the goal of making a positive difference in the lives of others. His recovery journey has been documented in the bestselling memoir, “Basketball Junkie,” the Emmy-nominated ESPN Films documentary, “Unguarded” and in countless local, national and international stories by The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated, among others. Through Herren Talks, Chris has spoken to over 1 million students and community members, sparking honest discussions about substance use disorder and wellness. In 2011, Chris grew his vision of support for others when he founded the nonprofit Herren Project. Through the organization, Chris and his team empower schools and communities to make healthy choices, while also guiding families through recovery. In 2018, Chris also founded Herren Wellness, a residential health and wellness program that helps guests lead healthy, substance-free lives.
This topic is one of great importance in the life of adolescents. If you wish to talk about this more, there is an evening PARENT/COMMUNITY presentation on the evening of December 1 at Grafton High School. Tickets are available at:
If you wish to have your student opt out of this event, please email Mr. Leach directly and an alternative learning block will be set up back at school in the library for your student to work while OHS attends the event. We highly recommend that students attend.
We are giving students passive permission to attend this event, meaning if you do not email Mr. Leach directly that you do not want your student to go, it will be assumed that they can go.
The Haunted Mansion
A Live Action Escape Room Experience
Students, ever feel like you're trapped in school? Stuck with your amazingly awesome teachers year after year. Day after day. Hour after hour. Well, do we have a treat for you! Now you and up to seven other teammates can experience being locked in school with only one way out. Your brain.
The Haunted Mansion Live Action Escape Room is an interactive simulation, allowing participants to control the action and decide the outcomes. Similar to Escape Rooms, which have been popping up throughout the country, The Haunted Mansion encourages brain power, wits and collaboration as teams work against the clock to solve clues, open a series of locks, and ultimately escape the mansion once and for all.
Permission Slip for the 2021-22 Haunted Mansion Escape Room-Need to Sign up by Dec. 17th
NOV.26, 21 - DEC.30, 21 Hwy 60 & Cheyenne, 1150 Cheyenne Avenue, Grafton, WI All guests are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy(s) that will be contributed to a child in need in our community. Kids2Kids is truly a celebration of giving!
This information is directly from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services:
Wisconsin children ages 5-11 years old are now eligible to receive the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine requires two doses for full protection and is the first and only vaccine currently available for this age group.
After successful clinical trials and a rigorous review of all available data, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized Pfizer’s request to expand the emergency use authorization (EUA) to include children ages 5-11 on October 29. On November 2, the CDC Director officially confirmed the vaccine is safe and recommended the vaccine to this age group.
To find vaccination locations currently offering the Pfizer pediatric vaccine, go to Vaccines.gov. You can also call 211 for help finding a healthcare provider or a vaccination location.
Parents and guardians can find information they should know about COVID-19 and vaccines for children on the COVID-19: Resources for Parents and Guardians page.
DHS Recommends COVID-19 Vaccine Booster Dose for Anyone 18 and Older
On November 19, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) announced our recommendation that everyone ages 18 and older receive a booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine following the completion of their primary series. People 18 and older who have received Pfizer or Moderna may get their booster six months after their second dose, and people who have received Johnson & Johnson may get their booster two months after their single dose.
Boosters doses are an important tool in making sure protection against COVID-19 remains high. And, getting a booster dose is easy! You can get it where you received your primary series, or you can go to any other convenient location. Also, booster dose “mixing and matching” is allowed, so you do not need to get the same vaccine type for your booster dose. To find a location near you, visit Vaccines.gov or call 211.
For additional information about booster doses, additional doses, and help accessing your COVID-19 vaccine record to determine when you may be recommended for a booster, visit the DHS Additional Doses and Booster Doses webpage.
Students should keep all over the counter medications (Advil, Tylenol, Aleve, etc) in the original containers and complete an "over the counter medications" form with the office. Students are NOT allowed to have medications at school kept in lockers, backpacks, on person, etc... They must be held in the high school office. Please contact Mr. Leach with any questions. Please be safe and set yourself up for success by following this expectation.
Family Lunch Account Balances
The Northern Ozaukee School District is able to provide breakfast and lunch to all students at no cost due to the USDA extending the nationwide program through the 2021-22 school year. Every student is eligible to receive the free qualified meals through this program.
In order for it to be a reimbursable (free) meal the students must take at least 3 of the 5 components offered each day. If they are unsure of what those components are they are encouraged to ask any of the cafeteria staff.
Any Ala Carte items outside the normal meals, including additional milks, will continue to be charged to the student food service accounts.
A family will be permitted to deplete the account to a negative $5.00 balance.
When a family account is depleted student(s) will not be allowed to purchase any a la carte items. You will receive automated phone calls or emails letting you know if your account has reached a negative balance. Please monitor the lunch account.
Families can access Skyward Family Access for account balance and purchases for each day.
Families who are free or reduced, please note that if your child decides not to participate in the program and brings cold lunch, milk will cost $.40 per carton. Please send money along that day or deposit money into the lunch account. (price subject to change)
