2021-22 School Year

We are excited for the 2021-22 school year! Oshkosh Area School District administration worked diligently all summer to develop and finalize plans for the upcoming school year and the OASD is committed to keeping our families, staff, students and community members informed.  

Expectations and Planning for the 2021-2022 School Year

In-person Learning
The OASD will have all PK-12 students be fully in-person for the 2021-2022 school year and will maintain our K-12 virtual school option (eAcademy) for families who wish to remain virtual. The OASD also will provide all of the activities that make up our PK-12 educational experience, including all athletics and extracurricular activities in-person as they would typically be scheduled. 

Masking and Quarantining
The OASD's face covering requirement and contact tracing or quarantine procedures will continue to be reviewed throughout the year as we monitor local health data. Due to a rise in August in COVID-19 cases in our district geographic boundary, especially in the under 18 population, the OASD will start the school year with a requirement that all people wear face coverings inside all district schools and buildings, beginning Monday, August 23 through Friday, October 1. We are committed to providing in-person instruction for our students in a healthy, safe environment and face coverings are just of many mitigation measures we are using to keep that in-person commitment. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation. 

Safety Protocols
The OASD's COVID-19 Safety Protocols were reviewed and modified over the summer and shared with families August 5. Please see the revised OASD 2021-22 School Year Plan/District Handbook. The District will continue to use recommended safety and mitigation strategies to maintain learning environments that are as safe as possible. We will also continue to collaborate with the Winnebago County Health Department and other state and local agencies, and follow CDC guidance to ensure we are maintaining the most current safety protocols amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
