Waupun School District on Eve of First Day With Just Three Schools

It’s the start of a new school year for most kids tomorrow but it’s even more than that for students in the Waupun School District. Tomorrow will be the first day of classes since the district consolidated its six schools into three last spring in an effort to cover a budget deficit of $1-million dollars. Closed were the elementary schools in Fox Lake and Alto, as well as Jefferson in Waupun. In the wake of the closures district officials renamed the remaining schools. The former Washington Elementary is now Meadow View Primary and houses grades K through 2. The Middle School is now Rock River Intermediate and has grades 3 through 6 and the high school is now Waupun Area Junior/Senior High with grades 7 through 12.
