Onalaska First in State to Deliver Meals.
food service 1
The Onalaska Food Service and Transportation department workers have pulled off an amazing accomplishment. They have shifted meal service from "onsite" to "delivered"  in a short, wild weekend. This is impressive, to say the least. 

food service 2The Onalaska Food Service department is the first School Food Service department in the state to deliver "To-Go" meals to families as a result of the CoronaVirus quarantine. Food Service Director, Jerry Carlson, applied Friday and was approved by OSPI Monday. The Onalaska School Cooks & Transportation Staff delivered 209 meals to kids on Tues, 324 on Weds & 373 went out Thursday. Chicken Nuggets, Coleslaw, Fresh Fruit, St. Patrick's Cake & Milk was the first meal to go out. Other meals were chicken salad wrap, taco salads & homemade pizza tomorrow. This is a Federal program to help families & the local economy while school is out. 

The dedication and commitment of Onalaska Food Service, Transportation and District Office employees (actually ALL of Onalaska employees) is truly remarkable. 

Here's a big "Hip-Hip-Horray!" and "Thank You" to the folks who are making this great achievement happen quickly and smoothly.

school closedSchool Closure Update
April 3, 2020

We are now entering our fourth week of closure and I am not sure, at this point, what the future holds. We will await guidance from the Governor and OSPI (Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction).

Our teachers are doing their best to deliver work to your students. If you are not getting response from teachers, let me know and I will address this with the building principals.

Thank you for your patience during this trying time. We all are doing our best to provide meals as well as work to your students in order to keep them up to date with their studies. There will be guidance out soon on our seniors.  We want to make sure they stay on track to graduate, even if school somehow gets extended.
