Important Video from Mr. Leach about Remote Learning
OHS Will be Remote from November 16th through November 24th and Return to In-person on November 30th
Dear Ozaukee High School Families,
Over the first eleven weeks of the school year our District has been able to offer a high quality in-person learning option for our students. This is a result of the hard work and dedication of students, staff, and families working together during a very challenging time in our world. Thank you to all!
This week, Ozaukee High School has experienced a very high number of STAFF absences as a result of a variety of outside factors including family related quarantines related to COVID. The team has been creatively staffing classrooms and teaching remotely when possible. Unfortunately, the high number of anticipated OHS staff absences going into the next seven days has required the team to look at our next steps to address this challenge.
Beginning Monday, November 16th, Ozaukee High School will be switching to a 100% remote (virtual) learning model for the next seven school days. At this time, Ozaukee High School will resume in-person learning Monday, November 30th. Please note that Ozaukee Elementary School and Ozaukee Middle School are continuing with IN-PERSON instruction and will NOT be switching to a remote learning model at this time. This switch only applies to Ozaukee High School.
Ozaukee High School students will follow their regular class schedule in the remote learning model during the next seven days and attendance will be taken each block. If students need any technology or materials, please contact Janet Zausch in the high school office. Additionally, since this switch at Ozaukee High School is related to teacher staffing, our co-curricular and extra-curricular activities will continue after school following safety protocols.
Thank you for efforts to keep students/staff healthy and for your outstanding support of our District!
Michael Leach, OHS Principal
Dave Karrels, Superintendent

Remote Learning and Absences
This year, there is a need for some students to “remotely” learn given the CHOICE (made prior to school), SYMPTOMS of Covid, or ILLNESS (Covid or otherwise). All students who work remotely MUST get the office approval prior to class.
Please note: While these remote learning guidelines are in place, there are situations that may have student(s) interested in learning remotely for a period of time. If a student or students would like a remote learning option consideration, please contact Mr. Leach and complete the process for consideration which includes: a summary of your plan, parent/guardian approval, and the student or students must be "in good standing" (as defined by our handbook).
If you have chosen the REMOTE learning options (prior to school starting) for the 1st quarter, you have been approved and do not need to let the office know your student is learning remotely. If your student is ill and will not be learning remotely on a given day you must report that to the office. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of class as if they were there in person.
If your student is having COVID symptoms or other illness symptoms, it is the responsibility of the PARENT/GUARDIAN of each student to communicate with the office at OHS. Here are the steps to requesting REMOTE access to learning for a student who is experiencing illness/symptoms of COVID:
-Call the HS office at 262-692-2453 to report the absence in the building by leaving a message on the voice machine prior to 7am or e-mail the high school office at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to report the illness/request to learn remotely also prior to 7am.
Reason for absence (specific symptoms)
If you will be requesting remote learning for your child.
Additionally, it is then encouraged and preferred that your student email their teachers prior to 7 am to let them know they will be remote learning for the day. This allows teachers to be ready for students that are not normally remote learning by the start of class at 7:30 am.
Students are NOT allowed to “flip” back and forth from remote to in person learning at any time, UNLESS there is a documented illness. The reason for this is because it is hard to track who should attend with the online link versus who is physically in class. Students will be marked as UNEXCUSED ABSENCE if these steps are NOT followed.
Sanitizing IT Equipment
Disinfecting your Technology is Never a Bad Idea!
Chromebooks and Laptops
Step 1: Power off the device. You will be applying liquid solutions to your device, so powering it off is a must.
Step 2: Remove any accessories or plug-ins such as cases, USBs, and headphones. Once removed, cases can be separately disinfected with sanitizing wipes or spray.
Step 3: Clean the screen using a lightly damp Clorox Disinfecting Wipe. Wipes should not leave a liquid on your hands before using. Heavy amounts of disinfecting solution can damage the screen.
Step 4: Use a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to gently wipe the rest of your laptop or Chromebook, such as the display, keyboard, or other exterior surfaces.
Step 5: Wait for the alcohol solution to completely evaporate before turning your Chromebook back on.
