Click on above graphic for important information on visiting school. If you are dropping off something for a student, it can be left with the door monitor at Door 38.
Since back to school sales are already popping up, we wanted to make sure our early shoppers know Oshkosh West High School does not have a school-wide school supply list. Students may purchase their own supplies based on their needs and preferences. At minimum, we recommend:
A notebook and folder for each class
Pens, pencils, and highlighters
Individual teachers will communicate with students if specific supplies are needed for a class.
Please click on above graphic for more information.
Senior pictures are due October 25th. We are looking for a head and shoulders, vertical pose; it’s okay if the pose is outdoors, or the student is wearing a hat, or holding a cat, just so it’s a head and shoulders, vertical pose. Those can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or a wallet-sized photo can be brought to the yearbook office (W10). Email Amy Karoses with any questions.
Yearbooks are on sale until December 21st. They can be purchased at the school bank OR ordered online (go to Yearbookforever.com). They are $55 until Christmas. We only pre-order what has been paid for. If there are extras at the end of the year, they will be $60. Pre-order early, because we’re never sure how many extras we’ll have!!
Parking permits are available at the school bank.
Must have make, model, color and year of the vehicle and license plate number. Permits are $45.00 and can be paid in cash, check or credit/debit card.

If you receive a call that your student was marked absent for one or more period and you think it was a mistake, have your student go to Student Services and they can get a slip to clear it up. If you forgot to call, you still can. Call or email the attendance office to clear it up! Email Kelsey.Gates@oshkosh.k12.wi.us or Marcia.Gonzalez@oshkosh.k12.wi.us
