Welcome to the Elcho School District

Welcome! The Elcho School District is a small school in rural Wisconsin. Our vision is to provide one million global opportunities for our students and to be a leader in innovation, lifelong learning, literacy, and individual learning plans. Some of the district highlights are:

  • Reading Best Practice Model School Site
  • Progressive Use of Technology
  • Post-secondary Credit Options & Programming Opportunities
  • Active School Environment Focused on Nutrition & Fitness
  • Recognized Comprehensive School Forest & Environmental Center
  • Year Round Student & Community Programming
  • Innovative Alternative Learning Programs
  • Early Childhood Collaborative Model Site
  • Early Learning Center for Ages 6 Weeks to 4 Years

Our low pupil to teacher ratio allows us to develop the uniqueness of every child and prepare them for an ever changing world.  Involvement and support of our community is critical to our success. Working together we shape the future one child at a time.

All parking will need to occur in the town lots east of the post office located between Elcho, Owano, Dorr and Elmo Streets.  (Noted as Lot A and Lot B)

  • No access or parking on the north side of the building – where Elcho Street and Antigo Street meet - due to construction vehicles.  Public Library parking on Owano Street.  (See above for times it is closed.)
  • No parking near the tennis courts on Owano Street.
  • The entire area behind the building will be fenced off for construction purposes.
  • After hours parking could still occur in the limited-term slots on the one-way section of Owano Street.  However, buses for events will still need to travel through that street for drop off and pick up.  Parking should not occur in non-designated areas, regardless of the time of day.

The playground will be CLOSED throughout the construction project.  Please talk to your students/children about the safety concerns related to a construction project and make sure they know that they should never try to go inside of the fenced-off areas to play. 

Please be aware of your surroundings while driving near our school.
Thank you for helping us keep our children safe.
