Teacher Deb Richardson Recognized as "Green" Leader.


EarthGen’s Green Medalist program is honoring Ony Teacher Deb Richardson. Ms. Richardson has shown leadership in sustainability, inclusion, and resilience within the Ony school community. During this school year, these characteristics have been more important than ever. These champions have worked to ensure that environmental learning and action continued, even during the pandemic.


Deb Richardson is recognized for:

  1. Her commitment to making school a healthier and greener place to learn.

  2. Her willingness to value others and make them feel welcome.

  3. Her persistence in the face of obstacles and setbacks.

Deborah Richardson, Onalaska Middle School teacher

  • Working in a conservative community, Onalaska Middle School teacher and Green Team leader Deborah Richardson has exemplified the characteristics of a Green Medalist. She fearlessly leads her community in environmental actions like invasive species removal; effectively includes families and administrators in discussions about climate science and epidemiology; and faces opposition with resilience, grace, and solid data.

Covid Update - June 7, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians of Onalaska Students,


I wanted to update you on the latest Covid-19 issues that have arisen since I last sent out an update. In the past week and a half, we have had four positive cases with students and because of this, there have been six exposures.


We have had two students hospitalized due to Covid. The students who have been exposed are being quarantined at home for 14 days from the time of exposure. One of the exposures ended up becoming a positive Covid case.


Please continue to monitor your children for the symptoms of Covid. If you are concerned, you may want to seek medical advice from your family physician or pediatrician.


We have one week of school remaining in this tumultuous school year. My hope is to finish the year strong, keep our students illness-free, and send them off for a well-deserved summer break.


Please contact the school if you do have a child who has tested positive or who may have been exposed to someone who has tested positive. We do rely on our parents and guardians to inform us when possible and to follow the guidance from the Department of Health. This ensures we have all the information possible to contact trace when we do have positive cases and/or exposures.


Thanks to all of you for your support during the year. It has been challenging for our students, our staff, and our families. Let’s hope as we get through the summer, we can expect to open schools up on August 31st with revised health guidance. Time will tell.


Jeff Davis

Actualización de Covid- 7 de junio de 2021


Actualización de Covid 19 - 7 de Junio de 2021


Estimados padres y tutores de los estudiantes de la Escuela de Onalaska:


Quería informarles sobre los últimos inconvenientes de Covid-19 que han surgido desde la última vez que envié esta informacion relacionada con Covid.. En la última semana y media, hemos tenido cuatro casos positivos con estudiantes y debido a esto, ha habido seis exposiciones.


Hemos tenido dos estudiantes hospitalizados debido a Covid. Los estudiantes que han estado expuestos están en cuarentena en casa durante 14 días desde el momento de la exposición. Una de las exposiciones terminó convirtiéndose en un caso positivo de Covid.


Continúe monitoreando a sus hijos para detectar los síntomas de Covid. Si está preocupado, puede consultar con su médico familiar o pediatra.


Nos queda una semana de clases en este dificil año escolar. Mi esperanza es terminar el año fuerte, mantener a nuestros estudiantes libres de enfermedades y enviarlos a unas merecidas vacaciones de verano.


Comuníquese con la escuela si tiene un hijo que dio positivo en la prueba o que pudo haber estado expuesto a alguien que dio positivo en la prueba. Dependemos de nuestros padres y tutores para que nos informen cuando sea posible y para seguir la orientación del Departamento de Salud. Esto asegura que tengamos toda la información posible para contactarnos cuando tengamos casos positivos y / o exposiciones.


Gracias a todos por su apoyo durante el año. Ha sido un desafío para nuestros estudiantes, nuestro personal y nuestras familias. Esperemos que a medida que avanzamos el verano, podamos esperar abrir las escuelas el 31 de agosto con una guía de salud revisada. El tiempo dirá.
