I used JOSM to import the shapefiles and turn them into .osm files. I went through and removed attributes that didn't make sense (which would be almost all of them) and added ones that did. Everything appears to have a name and is either a school or a park (and contains appropriate attributes for that).

I ended up splitting the data into two files. The first contains simple polygons that outline the plots of land and was somewhat easy to get fixed. The second contains all the multi-polygon shapes that I didn't want to deal with just yet. There are only a handful of these areas so I'm not overly worried about them just yet.
Everything is sitting up on github at the moment and are available for anyone to take a look at. I'd appreciate feedback on this.
