Grade K-6 School Placement (2020-2021)

  • All K-6 students will be assigned to a school for the 2020-2021 school year.  For questions about school placement, please contact OSD Registrar, Jennifer Hansen at or 608-835-4033.

Placement Letters - Mailed Week of May 4, 2020

  • Placement letters will be mailed to all students in Kindergarten - Grade 6 the week of May 4. 

    • K-4 Students: students will be placed in schools based on where they live within the attendance boundaries. Students living in the blue or red attendance areas will be placed at the elementary school they currently attend. Incoming Kindergarten students will be placed in the same school as siblings in grades K-4. Students living in the yellow attendance area will be placed at Forest Edge Elementary School (FES).  

    • 5-6 Students: FES will initially open with additional space for grades 5 and 6 in order to reduce overcrowding at RCI and ensure balanced classroom sizes between schools. Therefore, we have expanded the opportunity for students in grades 5 & 6 to attend FES. School placement will be made based on a variety of factors, such as home address, space availability, class size considerations, and 5th & 6th grade interest forms. There will be students who live outside the FES attendance area who will be placed at FES.  Wondering what FES will be like for 5th and 6th grade?  Check out this FES Video Tour and Video Message from Principal Kerri Modjeski!
