Principal Corner

Welcome back Loggers!!


As your new High School Principal, it is my great privilege to welcome you all back to another

school year. Even though we still face some challenges and obstacles, I am very excited to get this year

started, and am confident we will provide a quality education for your student(s).

As most of you may have heard, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Onalaska High School will

begin the school year by distance learning. This means that each student will attend all seven of

their classes for 30 minutes, Monday through Friday via Zoom in the morning. The schedule will

be as follows:

First Period: 8:15 to 8:45

Second Period: 8:50 to 9:20

Third Period: 9:25 to 9:55

Fourth Period: 10:00 to 10:30

Fifth Period: 1O:35 to 11:05

Sixth Period: 11:10 to 11:40

Seventh Period: 11:45 to 12:15

From 12:45 PM to 3:30 PM teachers will be available to provide additional support for students via

Zoom, phone, and/or email.

Students without Internet

We realize that once again, some students will not have access to the internet. In these

situations, assignments and materials will be delivered, dropped off, and/or collected on a

weekly basis. A specific plan for this will be determined once these students are identified.

Class Schedule Pick-up, Textbook & Chromebook Checkout Times & Dates

Wednesday, August 26th and Thursday, August 27th from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM and from 1:00 PM to

3:30 PM, as well as, Thursday, August 27th from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Students may arrive at any of the given times above to receive their class schedules and checkout Chromebooks and/or textbooks.

Students and parents will need to visit the high school office first. At this time, your student will receive their class schedule and directed to your student’s “first period” teacher to check out a Chromebook or library to check out textbooks. (Please note: Even students not needing a Chromebook still need to pick up their schedule and check out textbooks)

First Day of School

Please remember that the first day of school is Tuesday, September 1st. Students will begin their

1st period class via Zoom at 8:15AM.

As we move along, I know there will be numerous questions, so please, do not hesitate to contact

the high school. Enjoy the last few days of summer and we will see you soon.

Go Loggers!

The ONY Way:

You will hear staff and students talk about The ONY Way. The ONY Way is a set of five traits that we hope students will learn and instill while at school and in the community.

The five traits are:

GRIT: To have courage and resolve; strength of character;

PASSION: To approach life with a compelling enthusiasm;

VISION: The ability to plan for the future with imagination and wisdom;

FAMILY: All students are part of the Onalaska family. We will accept each other for our differences, strengths and weaknesses;

SERVICE: The action of helping someone without the need for anything in return.

These traits are important life qualities that every person needs to be a successful adult. Please help us teach and support The ONY Way!
