OSHKOSH (NBC 26) — The Oshkosh Area School District (OASD) has extended its face-covering requirement for all students, staff, and visitors through February 25, the school district announced Monday.

The school district says the extension is in response to the ongoing local increase in COVID cases.

The District also reduced its student isolation and quarantine from 10 days to five days in certain situations.

“We are committed to monitoring community health trends and adjusting our COVID protocols so that in-person learning can continue,” explained Dr. Bryan Davis, OASD Superintendent of Schools. “These decisions were made with the understanding that we want students to be able to return to school as soon as possible, as long as they are healthy enough to do so, and that our extended face-covering requirement provides additional protection that supports an earlier return at this time.”

Superintendent Davis also released a video message to families.

Additionally, the school district is hiring for multiple positions with immediate start dates and has a continued need for substitute teachers and teacher assistants. Anyone with an Associate's or Bachelor's degree in any field can become a substitute teacher.

To learn more, the school district asks that you contact the OASD’s substitute coordinator at jenni.johnson@oshkosh.k12.wi.us or 920.424.1254. Job seekers can visit www.oshkosh.k12.wi.us/jobs .
