Oconomowoc Area School District Kindergarten Registration Begins January 16, 2017

OCONOMOWOC, Wisconsin – December 28, 2016.  Registration for children in the Oconomowoc Area School District entering four-year-old and five-year-old kindergarten will be held from January 16-27, 2017.

Parents can register their children between the hours of 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. at all elementary schools. Children currently enrolled in four-year-old kindergarten in the Oconomowoc Area School District are not required to register, as they are already enrolled in our District. 

New-to-the-district parents with children who will be 4 years old or 5 years old on or before September 1, 2017 will be receiving health, immunization, and school registration forms in the mail.  Those forms should be completed and brought to the school the child will be attending on the registration dates, along with a copy of the child’s birth certificate.  State law requires the school to have immunization information on file for all first-time entering students.

Parents with children who will be 4 years old or 5 years old on or before September 1, 2017 but have not received registration information from the District can contact the elementary school where their child will be attending. If you have questions about registration, or about which school your child should attend, please contact Lori Dominiak in Student Services at (262) 560-2155.

Should parents be aware of any child who will be four years old or five years old on or before September 1, 2017, but whose family has not received a letter, please urge them to register at the elementary school where their child will be attending.

The Oconomowoc Area School District offers a three-year-old screening program available for children whose families have concerns about their child’s development. Screening is not a prerequisite for attending four-year-old or five-year-old kindergarten. Contact Marla Lewis at (262) 560-8000, ext. 8076 to discuss whether a screening is appropriate. 

Parents should contact the principal or administrative assistant at the school their child will be attending for more information regarding kindergarten registration. More information about registration and the Oconomowoc Area School District can be found at

Cold Weather Update


From: Roger J. Rindo, Ed.D.,
Superintendent of Schools

The cold weather has returned!  In light of the near-term forecast, I want to remind everyone about our practice for cold weather cancellation.  Our district will cancel school if there is a Wind Chill Warning with wind chills maintaining a level of 35 degrees below zero or more.  As always, the decision to cancel school will be finalized as early as possible in the morning, or perhaps the evening before if possible. 

School closing information will be communicated via the Skylert phone message system, district email system, and on the district website at School closing information will also be communicated to local TV and radio stations. Take a moment to check your contact information in Family Access to be sure phone numbers and email addresses are up-to-date, so our messages will reach you.

Please be sure children are dressed appropriately for these cold days. Hats, boots, snow pants, warm jackets and gloves or mittens are essential for students to be able to enjoy their time going to and from school or playing outside.  While I know they are not always easily convinced to do so, a gentle reminder that middle and high-school students should also dress warm in this weather!  We want them to be comfortable and safe on these cold winter days.

Thank you for all you do to support our community of learners and leaders in OASD!

The Oconomowoc Area School District is in the process of creating an updated alumni directory. A third-party publishing company is helping the district with this process. This week, the publishing company began outreach to all Oconomowoc High School alumni to update their data for the directory. As a result, OHS grads will get a postcard in the mail and may also get a phone call from the publishing company.

The purpose of updating our alumni directory is to make it easier for OHS graduates from all over the world connect with each other.

This is important information for the public and for alumni:


  • This is a legitimate company – PCI is the publishing company, formerly known as Harris Directory

  • OASD is working with PCI to update alumni information and create a directory

  • There is no cost to the district for this service

  • There is no cost to an individual to be listed in the directory

  • There is no obligation to be listed, simply request to opt-out at any time

We hope to have an updated OHS alumni directory in approximately one year and more information about how to purchase a directory will become available at that time. An updated directory will make it easier for people to stay in touch and coordinate reunions.

Please call the district Communications Office if you have questions at 262-560-2137.

Oconomowoc community members can now walk or run on the new track and field at OHS Rux Stadium this summer. The school board approved community access at their December, 2015 meeting.  A secure gate access system has been installed, thanks to local donor Kathy Ruehlow. 

Individuals age 18 and up (with the exception of current OHS students) can fill out an application for a key fob, which will grant secure access to the OHS track and turf facilities during the community use hours.  These hours have been identified to limit conflicts with district and student use of the outdoor facilities for school events, camps, summer school, athletic events and co-curricular events. 

Questions? Call 262-560-2131.
