Student Guests are able to come to the OZlympics event on Friday with both parent's/guardian's permission. A Guest Form must be filled out and approved by Mr. Leach. The guest form can be found below. Just a note that this may be a school day for schools.
Get ready for some fun!
Homecoming week will also be celebrated with different events/themes happening each day along with a Pep Rally on Thursday. Even if the event has “outside” locations, we will have large numbers of students gathered and social distancing is NOT going to happen… please MASK UP for the events of the week.
See below for the daily schedule.
UPDATE: Unfortunately, because of COVID it has been decided to limit spectators to two per student for the Powder Puff and Macho Volleyball games on Wednesday Night and also for the Friday event from 12-3 pm. All other activities are limited to just the students.
The outdoor portions of these events will be held in the stadium and people should spread out, mask up, and socially distance while they enjoy Powderpuff. The OZlympics are being played on Friday in the stadium as well. Same rules would apply. For the indoor event, we will have a rotation of grade levels competing and when your student's team leaves, the fans should leave as well. Feel free to take pics and enjoy this amazing week of Homecoming weather!
Wednesday - 5pm to 7pm Macho Volleyball (Gym) and Powderpuff Football (Stadium)
Friday - OZlympics 12-3pm

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). Learning remotely is ONLY an option for those reasons. All students who work remotely MUST get the office approval prior to class.
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.
